La-La Land Records release Frederik Wiedmann's score for Justice League: Gods and Monsters as a limited edition (1000 units only) CD exclusive. Witness a divergent reality where the Justice League protects the planet – but answers to no one but themselves. Employing methods of intimidation and fear, this Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman deal brute force in the name of justice. Superman was not raised by the Kents in Smallville, the Caped Crusader is not Bruce Wayne, and Wonder Woman is not an Amazon warrior of Themyscira. They are as likely the world’s saviors as Earth’s despotic rulers. When a group of famed scientists experience untimely “accidents,” a government task force follows the trail of clues to the Justice League – but is there a more powerful player operating from the shadows? It’s a high stakes game of intrigue, mystery and action that asks the question: How do you serve justice to those above the law...?

Frederik Wiedmann score for Justice League: Gods and Monsters builds neatly on the work he'd already delivered for Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox and Justice League: Throne of Atlantis. This album is more similar to the former than later score, with it being enjoyable, but certainly not an essential purchase.

The album contains 26 tracks (53 min, 46 sec) of impressive and intricate themes, but after listening to it for several weeks I still hadn't really picked up on anything that stuck in my head - there wasn't a single track that I wanted to add to my "favourite score" playlist.

That might sound a bit harsh when you consider that there are numerous beautiful themes (take 'Aftermath' for example) it's just that they're so fleeting as to almost pass you by.
