It is Elliot Goldenthal's distinct style that makes him so good. This score is a lot of fun all the way through. Zany instrumentation, at times bordering the insane-in-a-good-way, and your usual orchestral power Goldenthal is known to deliver.
Disregard the review if you like the odd ones yet remarkably inventive such as Goldenthal. It is no Elfman, so do not expect that. It pushes the envelope each and every time and it's damn good!
