Jon Brion has composed a very mellow and uplifting soundtrack, filled with beautiful melodies which touch the more sensitive notes behind these stop-motion puppets antics and jokes and back stories. It was a moving film and musically inspiring however the music from the film is not all here. Maybe we can expect a complete recording here one day, until then, this album offers most of the score.

I would like to add, that Romany Titre, a relatively unknown singer/song writer, has posted on YouTube a song inspired from Norman's Walk (track 3), her lyrics to Jon Brion's music fit with the films message perfectly, (that we are all the same essentially because we are all heading towards the same end, that commonality between us, makes us remember we are all the same, "in the end", and knowing this, we should value our short lives and get along).., when I heard her version of Norman's song, I thought it was from the film and I actually feel a little disappointed that her song isn't on the album, her lyrics keep turning over and over in my head "we know the truth is just like you...., so quick to judge, so slow to love, why can't you understand, we're all the same in the end.." maybe someone will hear her song and include it one day on the album and film. Do listen to it on YouTube! Her voice is beautiful!

This is a wonderful soundtrack, do buy it if you loved the film, it will transport you back there!

HASH(0x8bde875c) out of 5 stars Great soundtrack, BUT... 18 Nov. 2012
By Revy Belette - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I personally only actually bought this album for the music in the scene where Norman confronts Aggie (a beautiful and intense piece) and I was somewhat vexed at its absence from the album. I checked iTunes for the tracklisting to see if there had been bonus tracks released at some point and on the "search" page, the iTunes album has tracks numbering up through 19, although there's still only a total of 16 on the one they offer. It kind of implies that several were removed for some reason, which is extremely disappointing. But in all fairness, it's still a great soundtrack. This is the first of Jon Brion's work I've ever owned and regardless of the initial let-down, I've become very fond of the album.
I can't honestly compare it to the rest of the composer's music, but I thought I'd share what I learned about the missing tracks in the reviews here.

HASH(0x8bb90d38) out of 5 stars Best track not included! 14 Jun. 2013
By estefez - Published on Amazon.com
I came here for the sole purpose of buying the score from the climax of the movie, only to find it's not in here! Track 14 - Aggie Fights does a bait and switch, leaving out the theatrical score for something apocryphal. I can't be the only one who was drawn to this single track, only to be let down, and seeing the other reviews, it sounds like there's even more missing.
Such a shame!

HASH(0x8c44e2a0) out of 5 stars Definitely a Jon Brion Score 27 Aug. 2012
By It's Me, - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I'm partial to Jon Brion's work both in cinema and as a songwriter. This score worked very well in the film, but it's not quite as nice a listen as was Punch-Drunk Love or I Heart Huckabees. And it's really unfortunate that they didn't have him do at least one vocal track. That said, there are some wonderful Jon Brion moments here, especially on "Norman's Walk." The theme is so memorable that my 6 1/2 year-old was still humming it to himself the next day after seeing the movie. The 80's Zombie Theme is really good fun, too. It's nice to hear Jon Brion's music back in an "arty" context after having his music overshadowed in a couple of Will Farrell films.

HASH(0x8bcd26e4) out of 5 stars Not a complete soundtrack 5 Sept. 2012
By TFK - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I'm a soundtrack junkie, and the Paranorman soundtrack is really, really fun and great to listen to. It's fairly mellow, which makes it very effective ambiance music, but there are points in which it really brings out a sense of awe and adventure that can be pretty inspiring, especially for artists.

That said, the movie's crowning song is not in this soundtrack at all. During the climax, in which Norman steps up to the plate to face his greatest challenge, a song plays which sends chills down my spine. It's constant dramatic build up of epic proportions. Why this great piece of music was not included in this soundtrack, I have no idea.

While I really like the soundtrack for this film, this album is incomplete and I refuse to rate it for the time being. I can only hope that there is another release at some point that actually includes the complete score.

HASH(0x8bbe5e40) out of 5 stars Really beautiful 19 Aug. 2012
By Christopher M. Folea - Published on Amazon.com
I really found this soundtrack to be beautiful. I've been listening to it while I work, and it's quite fantastic.

Some of the pieces are slower, but if you can appreciate the slower pieces as well as the faster ones, it's a very enjoyable soundtrack.

My favorite tracks are "Zombie Attacks in the Eighties," "Norman's Walk," and "Oh, and one more thing."

If you really enjoyed the movie and the music in the movie, I highly recommend this product.
