4.0 out of 5 stars Another successful foray into animation for Danny Elfman 16 Mar 2014
By R S - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Dreamworks' animated movie branch has churned out what seems like dozens of cartoons in the last 15 or so years, ranging in the quality from very good (Shrek, How to Train Your Dragon) to utterly forgettable (Shark Tale, Bee Movie). By most critics' accounts, their first 2014 offering, Mr. Peabody and Sherman, falls somewhere in the middle, meaning it's probably not quite worth your time to see it in a theater unless you're accompanied by a child. A highly intriguing aspect of the production, however, is Danny Elfman's involvement as composer. Dreamworks in the past usually worked with Hans Zimmer (who is actually the head of their music division and helmed scores such as The Prince of Egypt and Mega-Mind), John Powell (who composed the masterpiece score How to Train Your Dragon), and Harry Gregson-Williams (the Shrek series), among others. This would be their first collaboration with Elfman. The zany movie seemed like a good match for Elfman's off-kilter and always-clever style of writing.

Your impression of the score may immediately be marred the minute you hear the main theme: it's a good theme, but unfortunately it's almost a direct copy of the theme that Elfman wrote for the TV show Desperate Housewives 10 years ago. Right off the bat it makes you ask “could he really not have come up with an original theme?” Fortunately, Elfman redeems himself later on with a secondary theme that as far as I can tell, is original, and is quite evocative in its slightly downtrodden progressions. The general style of the score is also a perfect fit for the film and exactly what any Elfman fan would want: frenetic, frenzied, fun, and fantastic, with the players of the orchestra being exercised in all kinds of ways. The music has a friendly persona that may you remind you of the tone for Elfman's “Simpson's” theme, and by the final tracks you feel like you've taken a journey with these themes, and by extension, the characters. In fact, by the end, it's even possible to forget that the whole time, the main theme was actually from a TV show that is very different from this movie. Some of the standout tracks for me include #14 “The Flying Machine”, #15 “Trojan Horse”, and #17 “History Mash-Up” which features a cute quote of the opening bars of Beethoven's Fifth. Overall, imaginative animated films are a good fit for Danny Elfman's sensibilities and each project, including his score last year for Epic, makes you wish he'd explore this genre even more. While this score falls short of the quality of Elfman's most tightly-woven soundtracks, it's consistently entertaining and worth a purchase.

Music for relaxing and ending the day with a good book. Not something you would listen to everyday but will help the time pass.

5.0 out of 5 stars All Aboard the WABAC 9 April 2014
By TheCube - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Just like the film itself, Mr. Elfman's score is very versatile in style. From an "intimate bombast" reminiscent of Korngold to relaxed lyricism to... "Aquarela do Brasil," it covers a huge range of tonal writing. Yet, the score never forgets what movie it is accompanying, as even its biggest sounding moments seldom reach the point of so-called "epic" music. Again, like Korngold, its big moments still feel a bit as if it is contained inside a toy orchestra, which fits perfectly into the film's relatively self-aware atmosphere.

Performance is generally great, with small but vigorous string section (contrast to the string section in the score for Frozen, which ended up being too dry and uninteresting), energetic brass (special compliments to the horns), and beautiful woodwinds. Recording is good enough for my dual-armature earbuds, and is generally crisp and full, especially the piano (oh my goodness, the piano).

Overall, a score that can travel through time as smoothly as the WABAC.
