I saw the movie at the cinema, I haven't seen it since as it hasn't been released on DVD. But I really enjoyed it and I have a number of original score soundtracks of Elfman's. The music is much more quiet and slow than that of soundtracks such as Alice in Wonderland and Edward Scissorhands, due to the nature of the movie. But it is still fantastic and I love it!
The item was in mint condition and arrived in good time.
I highly recommend it!

Elfman just has a way with providing the most recognisable and evocative music scores. This joins our extensive collection of his works, lives up to his very high standards and most certainly does not disappoint

HASH(0x99a5c8a0) out of 5 stars Eerie, ominous, melodic and powerful 11 May 2012
By Kevin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Most of us know what we're getting with a soundtrack to a Tim Burton movie. He regularly calls upon composer Danny Elfman, of the famous 80's group "Oingo Boingo", to score his movies. He's got a dark and fun distinct sound. This was one of the few soundtracks from a Tim Burton movie where I had to get the entire soundtrack. I saw a screening of "Dark Shadows" and absolutely loved the movie! The music flowing through it was exceptional. I bought this CD which is the entire musical score. It's eerie, ominous, melodic and powerful.

There is also a second Dark Shadows soundtrack they put out which is all Classic Rock hits that were featured in the movie. That soundtrack doesn't seem to be available in CD format, but you can buy it on iTunes for $9.99. I have that as well. It rocks!

HASH(0x99a5c8f4) out of 5 stars Dramatic Score Pays Tribute to Original Dark Shadows Music 12 May 2012
By FAN OF THE GREAT STUFF - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Although it was disappointing that the classic Dark Shadows theme from the original daytime series,
primetime series and first feature film, House of Dark Shadows, was not utilized anywhere, it is
terrific to hear that composer Elfman has paid homage to classic Dark Shadows music composer Robert
Cobert by adapting a style that is similar to the soundtrack that graced the earlier versions of
Dark Shadows - including distinctive vibes and a rich orchestral sound without an overload of
instrumentation.
If you enjoyed the music from Dark Shadows of the 1960s and 1970s, which spun off a top 20
album on the Billboard record charts -- and a hit song with "Quentin's Theme," then you will be
quite pleased with this new offering from the 2012 motion picture produced by Tim Burton and starring
Johnny Depp.

HASH(0x996b0438) out of 5 stars Danny Elfman is one of the greats. 5 Oct. 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Great eerie music. The only way that this might have been better is if Robert Cobert had done some original compositions for this movie. However, if the goal was to have a newer fresh sound, then they did just right with Danny Elfman. I am a fan of his anyway. Besides, with Depp and Burton on this project, Elfman completes the Trinity. I love score and soundtrack music, especially for background when reading, writing, or gaming. I tend towards the gothic horror bent so this is perfect in my opinion for what it will be used for. I don't believe it will let YOU down.
