5.0 out of 5 stars The best score to grace a movie. July 19 2004
Format:Audio CD
When I first saw Bram Stoker's Dracula in the theaters, the music didn't initially catch my interest. Of course when this movie came out, I was in elementary school. Nonetheless, everytime I watched the movie once it came out on video and finally DVD, the music began to grow on me. Now at an age where I can truly appreciate good music, I can honestly say that this is without a doubt one of the best motion picture scores to ever grace a movie. There hasn't been one to surpass it since.
Everytime I listen to the music, I keep thinking back to 1992 when the movie came out and I think of the sellout crowd I was a part of when I saw it. This soundtrack invokes all the feelings I had when I saw the movie for the first time. The moody violin and choral arrangements accent what is already a great film. I just don't like that Annie Lennox song at the end of the CD. It sounds incredibly out of place with the rest of the album.
If you see this CD the next time your in your local record store, pick it up and put your money down for it. You won't be disappointed.

Wow-Surreal, intense, passionate, & romantic. A true gem in modern classical music (and music for films for that matter). I've worn this cd out once already from listening to it over and over. I never get sick of it. I also recommend "The Ninth Gate" Soundtrack by the same composer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wojciach Kilar's best music July 12 2004
Format:Audio CD
I have all Kilar's soundtracks but this one is my favorite.
"Dracula - The Begining" is very emotional at first but then it gets very boring and may make a listener think that the composer was very desperate.
"Mina's photo" is a very lovely piece of music. I read Kilar's autobiography book where he said that he never completed.
"Vampire Hunters" is a classical and is the most remembered music from the movie. But again...The melody repeats over and over again but gets louder with each time.
"The Brides" is a very sad and the emotional music in the whole album. In the movie this track appears three times. First it was when Jonathan Harker was dealing with the "angels of hell" Dracula's brides. Another time was in the middle of the movie and the last time it was edited and placed in the credits.
These are my favorite tracks. Other tracks are very good too exept "Love Song for Vampires" which was completely off the topic and in my opinon would look good in Interiew With Vampire soundtrack.
You really should buy Bram Stoker's Dracula soundtrack.

5.0 out of 5 stars gothic minimalism May 2 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is beautifully sinister and moving music and perfect for this film. What a perfect match! It's certainly one of my favorite "dark" CD's, when I'm in the mood for sad or gothic sounds. With melodic simplicity and repetitive minimalism, these harmonies touch you to your very soul, and they are very melodic so you're not bored by bad or boring tunes. If you enjoy good gothic music from horror movies, you will simply be hooked on
this one, it's a classic of this category.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kilar's Music is Amazing March 29 2004
Format:Audio CD
The motion picture soundtrack for Bram Stoker's Dracula is one of my favorites. This film is my favorite film of all time. The power of the music just takes my breath away. Annie Lennox' song "Love Song for a Vampire" is my favorite song of all time. It is lovely and heart-wrenching. This is a must have for vampire lovers.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Horror Soundtrack Ever July 4 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is, by far, the best stand-alone horror soundtrack I have ever heard. While the theme to Jaws is great while watching the movie, the Dracula soundtrack triggers feelings and emotions even without the Coppala-directed film. During the next thunderstorm, turn off the lights, strike a match and light a candle, turn up Bram Stoker's Dracula, and enjoy the night. (ok, call me a freak, but it's fun!)

4.0 out of 5 stars Great! June 7 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This score is vivid and greatly done. "Dracula" is a strong piece to start the score. "Vampire Hunters" is now the classic and bold piece from the film. The remainder of the score is just as good, and it continues with its strong orchestra pieces. A great buy.

Part of the score's power is that Wojciech Kilar makes no concessions to 20th-century music. When you hit "play," the comfort of the sunlit world is gone. Kilar takes a Philip Glass minimalism and bends it to his own relentless, spooky ends. The music for "Dracula" alternates among three main tactics:
1) Hopeless Dread
In "Dracula - The Beginning," "The Storm," and "The Hunt Builds," there's a steady buildup of voices and instruments dragging you from "Uh oh" to "This is the sound of apocalypse." The use of crescendo and the choir's abandon make it clear something awful is happening at these points in the movie. These pieces have a neo-martial power that makes the heart quicken. Particularly in "The Storm," the horn attack almost sounds like "You're DEAD...you're DEAD...you're DEAD..." As for "The Ring of Fire," there's no structure - just a blend of cackling and wrong notes leading to a moment of pure cold shock.
2) Elegant Dischord
"Lucy's Party" and "The Brides" seem nice and flowery at first, but after about ten seconds you can tell that something's wrong. There are off-key notes and melodies that don't blend with the strings; it's a melodic signature for Dracula's presence in the story.
3) Disarming Beauty
The brutality of "The Storm" leaves you stunned and vulnerable to "Love Remembered." No wrath, no sucker-punch climax...just a sad and beautiful song. This approach, also used in "Love Eternal" and "Ascension," reminds us that the only reason Vlad became Dracula was the hope of being reunited with his wife.
Annie Lennox's tacked-on "Love Song for A Vampire" is a nice finale, but it pulls us out of the red-skied decadence made so vivid during Kilar's score. Get this album and Kilar's score for "Death and The Maiden." You'll hear some of the same tricks, and they work just as well.
