Album Review

Composer Danny Elfman's score for director Tim Burton's black-and-white stop-motion tale of a boy and his newly reanimated dog is steeped in the kind of rich, choir-driven, harmlessly macabre innocence that supplied 1990's Edward Scissorhands with the heart it needed to break free of its overly quirky trappings. With nods to the frantic, pinball-like precision of Pee Wee's Big Adventure ("Electricity") and the good-natured malevolence of The Nightmare Before Christmas ("Invisible Fish/Search for Sparky"), Frankenweenie is fun, breathlessly atmospheric, and surprisingly affecting. Employing an effortless mix of menace, heartache, and joy, Elfman has crafted his most sentimental and nuanced score since 2003's Big Fish, and while it may borrow liberally from some of his previous works, it's still a joy to listen to from start to finish.

Customer Reviews

Emmy, Grammy, Oscar...

Danny Elfman, c'mon, give this guy an Oscar for his talent, for all the TV Show themes, albums, movie themes and move soundtracks...This guy is a master!!

Danny Elfman and his genius

He is a master of music, hands down

Love Danny Elfman & Tim Burton!

Danny Elfman and Tim Burton together can do no wrong! Also, this is NOT technicaly a remake. Burton did make a short (about 30 min.) live action film called 'Frankenweenie' when he was at Disney. It was considered to dark and never released, but Burton was never really happy with it anyway, because the live action actors could not capture the spirit of his drawings and his orginal vision. So now that he can do whatever he wants, he has decided to do an animated version that is more true to his orginal ideas and drawings.
