Reviews[]

In 2014, John Takis reviewed the soundtrack from Heart of Steel, Part II as part of the 3rd Volume of Original Soundtracks from Batman: The Animated Series.

With Carl Johnson taking over the scoring duties, HARDAC receives a new theme: a repeating, lurching descent to a tritone set against a dirgelike rising line. This theme appears frequently throughout the score, building to the moment in the final cue where it interweaves briefly with the Batman theme. - The bonus section for this episode includes unused material. Johnson prepared a version of his final cue that omits the sprightly flute line for Barbara, leaving the composition more uniformily somber."

Composer Carl Johnson explained:

"Much of the music turned out well, although I can hear my enthusiasm and desire to try out all the little tricks I ever wanted to use. But here was the amazing thing about working for Shirley: she let us. In the incubator she created for the show, there was room for experimentation."
