iTunes Review

Given its romantic, macabre-lite storyline and stop-motion animation format, Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride can’t escape comparisons with his now-classic Nightmare Before Christmas. Likewise, Danny Elfman’s score comes with similar expectations. But while the onetime Oingo Boingo frontman’s songs and underscore may not have the former film’s evocative holiday cliches to play off, he’s delivered some fine work here, from the orchestral moodiness of cues like “Into the Forest” and “Casting a Spell” to a handful of sprightly tunes highlighted by “Remains of the Day” and Helena Bonham Carter’s “Tears to Shed.” If the film requires Elfman to lean more on underscore than songs here, it also gives him room for some tasty le hot jazz vamping, courtesy of four bonus tracks by the film’s Bonejangles and his Bone Boys.

Pretty good

The songs that have vocal parts are "According to Plan", "Remains of the Day", "Tears to Shed", and "The Wedding Song". I personally liked the album in general, especially "The Piano Duet". (Maybe 'cause that's just my musical side talking) All in all, I'd recommend this album to anyone who liked the movie. ^_^

Danny Elfman is fantastic. He once again has created an unbelievable score. From dark and comical musical performances, to jazzy numbers, to haunting piano melodies, this soundtrack is one of the best from him.
