Charlie And The Chocolate Factory,like other Danny Elfman scores are criticised because it is considered unbearably colourful.However,in my opinion,this score is even better than the usual Elfman standard.Wondeful balletic themes,tracks full of synthestised voices and powerful choir work - complete both with angelic women and menacing men choir,African ethnic music,elegiac,sad and suspenseful tracks.There are also excellent string play,powerful brasses and percussion - and even some outstanding tracks which featuring the piano.There are also cues which are extremely colourful and feature every Elfman trademark - breath-takingly beautiful string play with muted brasses,angelic women and menacing men,and furthermore an agressively singing children choir,well-placed percussion.The sound quality is superb,the quality of the orchestrations are exceptional,the instrumental music have a positive effect on your imagination.
However,avoid the songs (first five tracks),because those are awful.Also avoid the End Credits.It is highly recommended to listen to tracks 6 - 20,but eat chocolate or cake instead of listening to the first five cues and the last track.
