Panic! At The Disco-Mercenary (from Batman: Arkham City)

It’s not clear whether its going to be the in-game soundtrack or an accompanying album, but Arkham City: The Album boasts an impressive line-up of artists from the rock/alternative world that certainly warrants attention.

Whilst the line-up is admirable, it has to be said that P!ATD’s normal style doesn’t seem to entirely fit the dark, sinister nature of the video game. Though there is a clear gothic influence on their production and instrumentation here, it doesn’t cover the natural perkiness and pop-punk bounce of their sound enough to make it a relevant fit with the visual style of Arkham City, and whilst it’s not a bad song by any means, the synergy with the product its tied to just isn’t there unfortunately.
