Not to take away from Danny Elfman but it kinda has the sound of a Tim Burton movie. Avatar ImageGiant Squid says: The music makes or brakes the movie!Avatar ImageI am totally awesome says: totally buying this shall be the soundtrack to my life <3Avatar Imagehermy091098 says: all the music from what i can tell from the previews fits perfectly with the scenes.

LOVE his scores!Avatar ImageMr. Brightside says: Judging from the samples, the music for this film is gonna wrock! Hopefully it will get an Oscar(?)Avatar ImageMarcus175 says: Sounds great! Heyman's right about the range, Patric Doyle's score was very English but it was too narrow and rigid and felt wrong next to the adventurous scores by Williams, sounds like this will be great!Avatar ImageRosie016 says: Just caught that limited edition collectors set at the end there. Would love to have it because it includes bonus songs that are not on the base soundtrack.Avatar Imagekatiefelton says: It sounds great! But I was hoping for some more brass:( There's lots of strings. It does fit the mood though:DAvatar Imagemaimiaa says: oh alexandre desplat <3 he's so awesome.Avatar ImageHBPFan says: I really liked the way Desplat explained how he structures his music, and I think the score will be very very good - I hopes so anyway :)Avatar ImageNumeroUnoFan says: hes goodAvatar Imagehonigmuffin says: I really like the feel of the soundtrack, at least what one can hear so far.Avatar Imagehonigmuffin says: That shoudl be "listen to", not "hear".
