5.0 out of 5 stars Wild and Wacky, Elfman at his Weirdest January 8, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Danny Elfman's music for the Tim Burton film (dare I say "classic"?) Beetlejuice is tremendous fun. Even after 10 years (Yes, it's been out that long), I LOVE the music on this CD. The Main Title track remains my single most favorite instrumental composition of all time. If you're in the market for a fun soundtrack, or if you're looking for Classic Elfman, buy this one!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Soundtrack August 18, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is a great soundtrack from the early Elfman. If you've heard his other movie scores you should like this one since it's in the same vein as his darker Batman style works. The Harry Belafonte songs are nice touch.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dark and whimsical July 23, 1998
Format:Audio CD
The music here makes you wonder why Danny Elfman stuck with (Oingo) Boingo for so long. While he may have had a few catchy songs there, his talent for motion picture composing is awesome. Certainly, he and Tim Burton are nearly inseparable (witness The Nightmare Before Christmas and Batman), so Elfman's easy to peg. On the surface, it's tempting to say that once you hear one of his motion picture compositions, you've heard them all, but I suspect there's more nuance to his music that that. This album moves easily from the eerie and ethereal to the warm and heartfelt--often seconds apart. It's all dark, though, being music for a tart comedy about the afterworld. The two Harry Belafonte songs keep the gloom away, and add the perfect touch of whimsicality--both in the movie and in this album. It's hard to erase from your mind.

5.0 out of 5 stars Danny Elfman at his best June 18, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This soundtrack has been hailed by many as the greatest to any horror/halloween film ever. And they are quite right. Catchy, large and sweeping, it beats out any other in it's genre. I've heard this music used everywhere, even in previews for other movies.
Danny Elfman and Tim Burton have a thing for working together, and the result is always spectacualr (except maybe their remake of Planet of the Apes, where neither was at their best, but I'll let that one slide)
This soundtrack is many things, but above all fun. If you are a fan of Elfman or like soundtracks period, this is a good one. And those looking for the tracks Day-O and Jump in Line, you'll find them on here, but not the other calypso tracks or Lydia's opera theme.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great soundtrack! February 23, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Danny Elfman provides an excellent score to Tim Burton's Beetlejuice (his second film, if I'm not mistaking). The music captures the comical elements of the film, but never loses the gothic theme which is now a trademark of a Burton/Elfman film. The two caribbean songs by Harry Belafonte (Day-O and Jump In The Line) are amusing and adds a nice diversity to the soundtrack, without breaking the "feel" of it. Tim Burton tried to add a musical number to Batman without succeeding to the fullest, here - luckily - it works absolutely fine. This is a great soundtrack, and you don't need to be an Elfman fan to appreciate it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, entertaining November 26, 2005
A Kid's Review
Format:Audio CD
This certainly is Danny Elfman. My favorite tracks are Main Titles, Travel Music, and The Fly. The Main Titles is a fun bouncy song with a dash of mischievous comedy. It sort of binds the whole album together. The Travel music is probably, yes, the happiest sounding track on the CD. The Fly was a very cool sound, with real low piano playing reminded me of the fly scene in the movie. I was a little disappointed though, because the songs are very short and not everything is included. For example, in the movie the travel music plays, and Adam goes into the hardware store and the music stops. Then when he comes out again the music starts up. They only have the half when they drive to the store, not the other half. Also they do not have that music when Lydia was writing that note in her bedroom. I do not really like the sandworm planet music in the album because the instruments are so mixed up and obnoxcious, kind of annoying really. Of course this is an early work of Danny Elfman so it has its flaws. But if you are interested in the slightest about this particular score, buy it! The songs are pretty well put together, and the Harry Belefonte songs are great too! Don't be discouraged, this is still a great CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Please say the B word! August 10, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
To know him is to love him, and I dont mean B.J.,Tim Burton, or Michael Keaton...I mean Danny Elfman. This bouncy theme for the dead is undeniably outstanding. Dark and fun all at once, which is the thing that makes most of his themes so great. Haunting and curious are words that describe "Beetlejuice". Elfman's score fits the prankish spook like an old pair of jeans. If you are a fan of "Edward Scissorhands" or "Mars Attacks!" this soundtrack is for you. The best tracks are "Main Title","In the Model", and of course, "Showtime!" Look for his "Dark Theater" collection for an alternate main title as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Elfman's best June 8, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I am a huge fan of Danny Elfman and I have listened to a lot of his movie themes. Beetljuice is an excelent example of his talent. The only thing that I would have liked is a longer opening theme, but I know a lot of the time song legth is not left up tp the composer.
