Reviews[]

In 2008, soundtrack editor, Daniel Schweiger stated the following:

"Lolita Ritmanis steps out on her own with this powerful dramatic score.From its slinky film noir jazz to its stormy orchestra, Ritmanis' tone helps the episode capture the vibe of Warner Bros. gangster films like 'Angels with Dirty Faces,' right down to a redemptive church bell at the finale as the unrepentant Stromwell finally sees the light from his priest brother. But none of Ritmanis' work is more potent than Stromwell's flashback music, as a hurtling orchestra becomes the train that's relentlessly down bearing down on a child."

Producer Bruce Timm stated the following:

"There were several times when I thought the studio was going to tell me that the music was too dark, especially as this score built up to the train cutting this kid's leg off. It was almost overwhelming. But the music added that element of real emotional immediacy, and fortunately none of the people at Fox's standards and practices department said that the music was too intense."
