I was pleasantly surprised with this soundtrack thinking it was going to be your standard orchestral arrangements, but instead, I was given soprano sax, funky beats, interesting voice harmonies and various mood changes that reflected the movie very well.

seeing the movie not a requirement... Oct. 23 2005
By Leland Ripley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
...but it DOES help, unless you like unusual music. without being "experimental," the music on this disc pushes some boundaries - mainly in the "quirky" field, but is overall very accessable. it also covers a lot of ground, at times sounding like eric serra, and others like django reinhardt playing with don byron. while trying to describe it to a friend who hadn't seen the movie, I called it "music from the 30's... if someone in the 30's was composing what they thought music would sound like in 75 years." it's definently worth a listen, but seeing the movie puts it in context a little. it holds up on its own very well though.

Lilting and charmed Aug. 5 2006

A fantastic movie with an equally wonderful score. From the opening circus-y feel to the jazz vibe through out is quite different and appealing from the usually movie score fare. The highlight is the remake of the Carpenters "Close to You". Very odd and Beautiful.

enchanting Dec 22 2005
By L. B. Pellerin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
For those that like their music beautifully bizarre. This soundtrack is comprised mostly of circus music and jazz! One of my personal favorites is Mrs. Bagwell's Rhumba, it's entertaining and catchy! This soundtrack may also be used as background music to get your creative juices flowing. Personally, I listen to it as I paint or draw, and interesting results follow. It's also nice to relax to. See what it can do for you! =^^= And if you haven't, be sure also to see the superb movie it accompanied! o(^^)9

great collection of unusual music May 6 2007
By C. Cedotal - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Rented the movie on reccomendation from Netflix, it was pretty good. But the music was the star of the show. The soundtrack follows the course of the movie pretty closely, it's kind of like listening to the movie. Each track brings to mind a specific scene in the movie. One of the highlights is the ecclectic treatment of Burt Bacharach's "Close to You". Most will remember the super-sweet Carpenter's version, but this interpretation was the main reason I bought the music. Unusual augmented chord progressions and almost minimalist format (complete with the mechanical background sounds made by the female jack-in-the-box-like, life-sized, mostly metal toy dressers) make the tune as captivating as in the movie when they 'convert' the trapped Helena into the black princess. Great music to play while relaxing, too.

excellent film, excellent soundtrack Aug. 27 2006
By Jason G. Renzi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
this is a very unique and complex collection of music. it's very hard to sum up in a pithy phrase or two. it's quirky, eclectic, humorous, and never grows tiresome. you can listen to it over and over and continue to be astonished by its sublime, hypnotic, extroardinarily beautiful passages.

iain ballamy is a gifted young man with a bright future ahead of him. i will keep my eye out for his work in the years ahead and you should too.

in the meantime do yourself a favor and pick this collection up. you will not regret it.
