Reviews[]

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

"One of the few series scores not to feature Walker's Batman theme (although it does briefly quote her Catwoman theme towards the beginning), 'Tyger, Tyger' focuses on developing the evocative theme for Tygrus."

On the same release, Composer Todd Hayen stated the following:

"The score is a personal favorite as it became a love theme of sorts- or, more accurately, a theme of pathos and existential despair. The last minute or so of the episode was my favorite scoring experience of the whole series, when Tygrus claims there is nothing for him anywhere. As the rain begins to fall, the theme wells up i the score. Batman then recites the last lines of the Blake poem The Tyger. I loved it. - Shirley was impressed by the orchestration technique throughout the score, which muffled eight notes in low brass, accompanied by a bass drum and timpani, as she wasn't expecting it to work. - Once again I was reminded of Shirley's personal and professional confidence, as well as her respect for all composers, regardless of their status or experience. She was always so brutally honest, but also made her feelings known when you made good choices."
