Anybody who loved the movie "Edward Scissorhands" will be enchanted by it's soundtrack. Danny Elfman's music captures the magic of every moment from this unique movie. The music is enchanting, emotional, heartbreaking, unforgettable. After seeing the movie you will never look at snow again in the same way. While listening to the soundtrack you will feel the magic of seeing your first snowflake, remember the tingling of your first love, feel the pain of your first heartbreak. If you are romantic enough to let yourself be pulled into the fantasy of this film and its music, you will love this CD. I do!

This is a really beautiful, haunting score, with only one major disappointment - the Tom Jones track at the end. Nothing against Mr Jones per se, but it does sound a touch mawkish after an hour of superb Danny Elfman orchestral music.

Enchanting, magical, mesmerising, haunting, fantastical tracks! Especially track 7 - Ice Dance, which moved me so much I chose it as the track to walk down the aisle to when I got married! Every time I hear it, I well up. A friend describes it as "the type of music you would hear in heaven". It invokes memories of the charming movie its taken from and I completely agree with a previous reviewer - you will never look at snow in the same way again.

i first saw this film back when i was a wee boy now im a lanky teenager, whos only love for music is the musical masterpieces that emerge from the mind of danny elfman, after i saw this film it changed my childhood completely, i would sit in class and just dream away about finding my true love, and making as beautiful an ice sculpture like edward had done in the film, dannys enchanting and unique style of music has kept my imagination in action till this very day, i even sometimes lie in my garden at night in warm clothes, with my edward scissorhands cd and my headphones, staring up at the stars dreaming about the girl in my life, its what id say is the heaven on earth the excitement in my life. so my advice is if i a lad of my age and maturity can appreciate such beauty then so can you and believe me it is more than worth it! don't miss out mind that tom jones track seems to ruin it a tad for me the git!

It really is, I mean it. Especially The Great Finale, probably my favourite 3 minutes of music of any genre (considering I own more than 1700 CDs of classical music, no piracy here, that's saying something). It always moves me, and more than once tears fell while I was listening to it. The movie is a masterpiece, but without this music it would be less. That magic moment when Winona Ryder dances under the ice wouldn't be the same without Elfman's melody, or The Inventor's death (The strings here simply weep, it's amazing). There are perhaps richer, or more epic OST (The Lord of the Rings, the Star Wars cycle...). None has more beautiful music inside.

as far as film scores go this has to be the most beautiful and haunting. danny elfman is a perfect accompaniment to tim burton films. the opening tracks are very magical and ethereal and and the soundtrack continues becomes to get quite emotional and dark. i heard the soundtrack before i saw the film way back and got a true sense of the storyline from the music alone. i love this soundtrack so much i used the first track at my wedding. brilliant stuff even though old carpet skin himself (tom jones) turns up at the end of the cd! recommended listen

Quite simply one of the most beautiful scores ever written for a movie and one that Elfman has never subsequently matched. Every track breathes life into the characters and the movie in turn takes its strength from its music. The only sub-quality track is the one by Tom Jones and although it doesn't spoil the album, it isn't of the same quality as the orchestral work by Danny Elfman.
This is an essntial for a fan of movie music. Buy it and enjoy it over and over again.

Taken from perhaps Tim Burton's most personal and magical motion picture, Danny Elfman's score is one of the most beautifully spectral examples of original film music in recent times. Instantly calling forth frosty images of frozen teardrops and the eventual melting of ice, the overall effect of listening to these compositions is one of the listener being transported to a more innocent world, left to be enfolded in the crystal blanket of Elfman's distinctive time signatures and quite marvellous use of a choral section.

I have owned this CD for nearly three years, but have only just nowgot round to writing a review. Often, if you've had a CD for three years, you're bored with it and no longer listen to it. This is definitely not the case with the soundtrack from Edward Scissorhands. I listen to it as often as when I first bought it, which is basically all the time. I don't own any other CD that I listen to so much. In fact, I would quite happily throw away all my other CDs if I could only keep this one - it is definitely my "desert island disc". The music takes my breath away every time I hear it. I marvel at Danny Elfman creating such heavenly tunes. It's like music by angels. Unlike most of the reviewers here, I am unusual in that I am not a big fan of the Edward Scissorhands movie. But you don't have to be a fan of the film to appreciate the music. In fact, I think it's a shame that people probably only decide to buy it because they like the film; the music stands on its own as the most magical music you have ever heard, and I can't imagine anyone not falling in love with it. I like Danny Elfman's other soundtracks, but this is his masterpiece. It draws you into a magical, otherworldly realm. It makes me think of fairies, and elves in forests, and magical wintry scenes of snow and ice. Last winter, it was snowing one evening, so I put on this CD and watched the snow falling out of the window, and felt I'd been transported into a different world. I've told my husband that I want the opening tune to this album played at my funeral. I can't think of more beautiful music to send you on your way.
If you love mythology and fairy tales, or just wonderful music, buy this album. By the way, I think the Tom Jones song at the end is, in its own way, magical.

Even thought I havent received this yet, the music in the film was the most perfect music i've ever heard! Its weird, it used to be my favourite film when i was a little girl i was obsessed! And 15 years later i watch it again and all of those first time feelings come back. One of the most amazing-est love stories ever written by Tim Burton. The music makes the film perfect. :] Ill always love this film.
