A masterpiece. One of Danny Elfman's best soundtracks. Comprising of 21 tracks, each one is indivdually unique and brilliant. Those who are already fans of his work will notice the use of certain types of music from his other scores including; Spiderman, Edward Scissorhands, Batman and The Nightmare Before Christmas. My favurite track is 'Main Titles.'
Truly as sweet as chocolate itself!

My son is a huge fan of the movie and I bought this so we could play the songs especially in the car going to and from his pre-school. Needless to say it's had more of an outing than that - my son loves putting the music on and trying to recreate the Oompa Loompa dances from the film, which has us in fits!

In it's own right it's a very moody but evocative soundtrack, just what I'd expect from Danny Elfman, so musically very good, but my major entertainments comes from my son's dancing as a result of track 2 to 5.

Is there a more perfect combination in the movie business than that of Johnny Depp and Tim Burton? Yes Danny Elfman and Tim Burton of course! Elfman scores for all of Burtons movies. Each time the music is unique and fanciful but always identifiable as the work of seriously talented composer. This music he has compsed for charlie and the Chocolate Factory (his latest collaboration with Burton) is both beautiful and zany, the instrumentals working to weave extra magic into the storyline, and the Oompa Loompa dittys serving to entertain us with upbeat and funny tunes alongside Dahl's original lyrics. Overall I have to say one of Elfman's best scores yet.

There are some fantastic songs on this album and the film looks fantastic. Track 1 will be stuck in your head for weeks to come!
But, the main reason I bought this album was for the piece of music that appears in the second half of the trailer and it is absent from this CD.

My six-year-old son loves this film and he goes to sleep listening to this album. In his own words, it is his 'favourite CD' and you can't go wrong with Danny Elfman (of Spiderman fame I believe). It does what it says on the tin - great value and a sound investment!

This overall is a very good soundtrack. The music (written by Danny Elfman, who also composed the music for such films as Spider-man 2 and Edward Scissorhands) is excellent. I have it, and I only tend to listen to the first 6 tracks again and again, although the rest are worth a listen to. Would make an excellent Christmas present for any Charlie and the Chocolate Facotry Fan, or a Danny Elfman fan for that matter. Would go really well with the DVD itself as a present.

One of those albums that can only make you smile =D Vividly depicting the scenes of the film, echoing the talents of both Mr Elfman and Mr Burton - which turns out to be a flawless blend!! You'll be singing 'willy wonka, willy wonka...' down the street and all through work! BUY IT NOW!
