Danny Elfman The Nightmare Before Christmas Soundtrack Vinyl 2LP
Danny Elfman, who has scored many of Tim Burton's imaginative films (Edward Scissorhands, his two Batman films, etc.), is a perfect musical partner for the somewhat macabre director, and never more so than here, where, in fact, Elfman gets not only to write the music but to play the part of the main character.
The Nightmare Before Christmas is an animated movie musical about the abduction of Christmas by the denizens of Halloween land, and Elfman sings the part of Jack, the Pumpkin King.
Patrick Stewart recorded narration for a prologue and epilogue. While not used in the final film, the narration is included on the soundtrack album.
"By simply listening to the soundtrack, emotions and visions will race through ones head. The beautiful pieces of music are perfectly arranged, and contain some of the smoothest transitions one will ever hear. It is no easy task to switch moods and completely change the atmosphere of something in the blink of an eye, but Danny Elfman does it flawlessly on a number of occasions.
His lyrics are fully of imagery, and leave no piece of detail out. You can grasp a truly wonderful story here without sitting in front of a television for an hour and a half. Brilliant, breathtaking, and beautiful only begin to sum up the words to describe the masterpiece soundtrack from 1993s classic The Nightmare Before Christmas. This truly is a soundtrack to remember and cherish." - Michael Roberts, Sputnik Music
