And to me they are some of Danny Elfman's best work. Back in the 90s his scores had an unusual yet significant style that was recognisable and he had way of capturing enchanting and eerie characters and bringing them to life and these two soundtracks are a perfect example of character motifs as each character has their theme for the listener to know when they are around. Therefore these are a great example of scores that are so good that when you listen on their own you SEE the film and therefore can relive the sensations whilst sitting on the train.
Favourite tracks - Batman Returns
Birth Of the Penguin
Favourite - Edward Scissorhands
Edwardo The Barber
Very Sick Girl
The Forgotten People
Favourite Tracks- this is a medley of several tracks from the score in one but Concerto of Love which is at 5.42, just has me in tears by the end of it. The simple melody line symbolising love and sacrifice is just heartbreaking. If you haven't watched the series I would strongly recommend.
