Nightmar Revisited (Part 1)

One of my all-time favorite movies is Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas. Back when if first came out I was a kid and I really couldn't appreciate much of what this movie had to offer. Now that I take a look back at this movie one of the best things about it is the music. Deffinetly some of Danny Elfman's best work. I recently came across a new version of the soundtrack called "Nightmare Revisited". It comes with most of the tracks from the official soundtrack but all remade into all kinds of music. Here are the tracks and what I think about them.

Overture - DeVotchKa

Really good, has good rythim and captures the feeling of the movie 5/5

Opening - Danny Elfman

If you have the soundtrack it's the same. It's the narration given by Danny Elfman in the beggining of the movie only longer and with more detail. It's meh. 2/5

This is Halloween - Marilyn Manson

WTF. This one is just weird, and thats saying much given the parties involved in the making of this. I don't know, I really don't think this hardcore rock goes well with TNBC. It's a musical about halloween, not emo town. The song isn't even that bad it's just that I don't like the interpretation given my many that think Jack Skelington is a badass. Once again, this one is in the soundtrack so why bother having it again. 2/5

Jack's Lament - The All-American Rejects

This one is ok. It's an upgrade in terms of music and all, and it sounds just like the original. The only thing I don't like is the voice, it's so skweely. The song is suposed to be a complain and all so you add that and it sounds like emo town again. 3/5

Doctor Finkelstein/In the Forest

Not bad. Once again a welcome upgrade. But the track wasn't that memorable to begin with. 3/5

What's This? - Flyleaf

This one is really nice. Fall Out Boy did a good job in making the other remake but this one is very different. It's slow but it just sounds great. You just can't go wrong with this song I guess. 5/5

I'll be right back with the rest
