Product Description

Product Description

The Nightmare Before Christmas 2 Disc Special Edition soundtrack will release against the premiere of the new 3D version opening in theaters nationwide 10/20/06. The bonus disc features such artists as Marilyn Manson, Fiona Apple, Fall Out Boy and She Wants Revenge and of course Danny Elfamn. The initial pressings will contain a 3CD lenticular cover.

Not only is The Nightmare Before Christmas one of the best musicals of the past two decades; it may well be Danny Elfman's masterpiece, successfully integrating his main influences (from Cab Calloway to Nino Rota) into a fantastic whole. The first disc of this reissue features the original soundtrack, its songs still teetering between dark humor and poetic flights of fancy; this so-called kids' music is at least as sophisticated and skilled as anything you're likely to hear on Broadway. The second disc includes demo versions of four songs on which Elfman plays and sings everything, and five new covers of some of Nightmare's best-loved songs. Marilyn Manson successfully applies his spooky Weimar-circus style on "This Is Halloween" while Panic! At the Disco's lushly orchestrated take on the same tune is closer to the original. Fiona Apple's poignant "Sally's Song" is enhanced by very nice string charts, and She Wants Revenge does a disco take on "Kidnap the Sandy Claws." Best perhaps is Fall Out Boy's cover of "What's This?" which sounds like an unexpected cross between the Beach Boys and Queen. A highly recommended set. --Elisabeth Vincentelli

As Halloween will soon come to us in a month, and Christmas in three, it will be time for me to relisten to this wonderful album from a movie that I discovered years ago in school, and whose soundtrack I bought to my greatest pleasure. In fact the soundtrack is so perfect that I can't find a song in it that I don't like, Which is great for there are times when you listen to a musical and find certain songs less appealing than others, like for Carol Reed's Oliver!, a movie that I liked but had too many long songs that I think dragged the movie.

To describe the content of this album, I'd say that Danny Elfman gives us all the songs and tunes that were used in this last part of what I call "Tim Burton's Christmas Trilogy", which consisted of Edward Scissorhands, Batman Returns and Nightmare Before Christmas. All of this is compiled on the first disc while the second offers excellent interpretations of some of the songs by musicians like Marilyn Manson, Fiona Apple, She Wants Revenge, and Fall Out Boy. As a special candy treat, the composer also offers to us Demos of five of his songs which he showed to Tim Burton.

Inside the CD, the leaflet offers all the songs' lyrics, which is great to anybody who would love to sing to those tunes for the holidays or if you are listening to the album and want to sing-along.

As for the sound quality of the album, I found the sound balanced and clean of any noises or sound dirt.

In the end, I have nothing but praise for this soundtrack which I think stands among the best that Danny Elfman did in his career, but also in his Tim Burton collaboration, along with Edward Scissorhands and Batman Returns.

Definitely pay a few extra dollars and get this version for the second cd. There are covers of the songs by popular artists and I think the rest of the disk is the original demos.

This particular set of music selections from the film is very clear with respect to sound quality and orchestral sound tapestries. This is an excellent soundtrack.
