Very good Mr. Elfman, with four under your belt in 1 year...

"WOW! Danny Elfman penned four scores in one year..."Edward Scissorhands", "Dick Tracy", "Nightbreed", and "Darkman". Wow! This man is truly incredible! Enough with the small talk and lets get down to business. Even 1990 was 12 years ago, it was a big year for Elfman. "Main Titles" delivers an extremely brooding theme, at its first showing, it creeps along slowly. During the rest of the song and score, it comes faster. "Woe, the Darkman, Woe..." is a good somber cue. Elfman uses organs to create a Gothic feel. Its just really amazing the way he brings these things together to create something mind-blowing. "Creating Pauley" is something incredible in its ability to take us right to the lab, where Peyton works his buns off creating his synthetic skin. Pauley was a very ugly person and he was going to need extra skin to make someone so hideous. "Carnival from Hell" is really kind of creepy, with the circus music bouncing along so merrily. Dark tones emerge throughout the duration of the track and finally come out more audibly at the end on the cue when Darkman gets really [ticked] at the carnie. "High Steel" turned the Darkman theme into a sort of "swashbuckler" theme, which wasn't bad, but it just didn't fit into the feel of the film. "Finale/ End Credits" was great...of course. All Elfman scores have good finales. Its a basic fact of film music and whoever has a problem better get their hands on an Elfman CD...FAST!(Preferrably "Batman".) The score is dark, has some humorous moments, action-packed, and sometimes really ...creepy but nevertheless...its very good, despite its shortcomings, if it even has any."
