There are either chirpy and dark,or either sad,elegiac and dark songs contained by the album - all of them have lyrics which are unusual and filled with dark humour.Most of the songs are often criticised because of the lack of singing talent of their performers,but I think they are worthy for their wonderful swing,gothic or symphonic music alone.The Remains Of The Day is the best song,performed by Elfman' s popular band,the Mystic Knights Of Oingo Boingo.The symphonic cues are excellent - these tracks are dark,haunting,mysterious,
heart-breakingly sad,elegiac,menacing and omenous at the same time with excellent harpsichords,woodwinds,brasses,string and piano work.
The jazz and swing tracks are chirpy,colourful,enjoyable,entertaining and well-performed.I can say this soundtrack may only appeal to those persons who like Danny Elfman' s music from Edward Scissorhands,Nightmare Before Christmas and don' t bother if there are some jazz tracks are contained by the album.But this album never gets boring due to the lots of types of tracks that are contained by it - and this fact is admirable.
