La-La Land Records, Warner Bros. Animation and DC Comics present the original motion picture score to the DC Universe animated original movie Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox. Acclaimed composer Frederik Wiedmann (Green Lantern: The Animated Series) seizes the opportunity to work with a live orchestra and unleashes a stupendous superhero score that propels this action-packed, fan-favourite DC Comics storyline. Fans of Wiedmann's work on the Green Lantern scores will be delighted with what the composer has delivered here. Produced by the composer and MV Gerhard, and mastered by Doug Schwartz, this special release is limited to 2000 units and features liner notes from the composer and the filmmakers...

Frederik Wiedmann's score for Justice League The Flashpoint Paradox is another interesting collection of beautiful themes. Personally, while I enjoyed it, I didn't think it was quite as strong a score as his work on Green Lantern: The Animated Series.

The album contains 28 tracks and has a running time of 58 min, 49 sec. There aren't any stand out tracks or themes that grab your attention - rather this is one huge collection of music to simply soak up and enjoy. There's nothing here to not like, but equally there's nothing that will leave a huge impression on you.

On a packaging side note, I was a little disappointed to see that this "limited edition" CD came in one of those cases where the spindles that hold the disc in place break almost immediately. Mine had been damaged in the post and the disc was rattling around inside the case. I can't believe that companies still use these cheap, useless cases when there are ones available that actually work.

Overall, this is certainly an album I'll be listening to again in the near future. This is packed to the rafters with little moments and beautiful segments of music.
