Doesn’t sound like he will disappoint. Not to take away from Danny Elfman but it kinda has the sound of a Tim Burton movie.

To tell the truth, I thought it would be a fiasco. But now I see it is fantastic. Looking forward to the cd! :)

Sounds great! Heyman’s right about the range, Patric Doyle’s score was very English but it was too narrow and rigid and felt wrong next to the adventurous scores by Williams, sounds like this will be great!

Just caught that limited edition collectors set at the end there. Would love to have it because it includes bonus songs that are not on the base soundtrack.

It sounds great! But I was hoping for some more brass:( There’s lots of strings. It does fit the mood though:D
