Album Review

Tiptoeing the fine line between scary and too scary, Douglas Pipes' score to Monster House has enough wit and genuine creepiness to make it a perfect fit for the movie. Track titles like "Ding Dong/House Comes Alive!" and "Cop Car Gets Eaten" hint at the music's mix of playfulness and menace, while the juxtaposition of "Eliza's Song"'s hilariously over-the-top sweetness and the alluring spookiness of "Through the Telescope" allude to just how quickly things can change from sunny and normal to anything in Monster House's world. Perky flutes and strings provide the motif for the world outside the house, as on "Parents Drive Off," but once inside, tumultuous brass, scuttling percussion, and quintessentially eerie theremins dominate the soundtrack, as on "Jenny Walks Up/Jenny's Close Call." The music box-like xylophones and glockenspiels sprinkled throughout the score feel like nods to Danny Elfman's scores for Tim Burton's movies, as well as John Williams' "Hedwig's Theme" from his Harry Potter music. Monster House is a fine addition to this musical neighborhood.

Customer Reviews


This is a good album to listen to, it's very mysterious and just makes you think. Although, I don't think iTunes should make you buy the whole album, for that I give this 4 stars

"Halloween" End Credits Song

If you're looking for the song "Halloween" from the end credits, you won't find it on this soundtrack... but it *is* on iTunes, available as a single download. Search for "Siouxsie and the Banshees" song "Halloween." To my tastes, this was the best song of the movie, and it's a pity the soundtrack album omitted it. And I agree with the other posters here... while 24 tracks for ten bucks isn't a bad deal, it's a shame the tracks aren't available separately.

This is so Unfair!!!!!

Why do you have to buy the whole album. Who wants to spend 10.00 on a soundtrack of instrumental music that they don't even want. I mean I only want like 2 songs and I have to buy the whole album for the 2. No way not worth it. Itunes you're about to loose a lot of money!!!!! : )
