Despite what his detractors say, Danny Elfman is actually a lot more varied as a composer than they would assume. Like John Williams, Elfman is easily written off in some quarters based on a few select works for a particular collaborator or two with broad generalizations like "quirky" and "gothic" used to describe his music and claims of frequent self-plagiarism thrown his way. Of course, he has been writing scores that sound different from one another (and sometimes devoid of those two adjectives) since his career began and the one that immediately springs to my mind is his score for the 1994 adaptation of Ann Sewell's 1877 novel BLACK BEAUTY. Written for the screen and directed by Caroline Thompson (who Elfman happened to be dating at the time), the story is told through the perspective of the titular horse (with weird narration by Alan Cumming) as he reflects on his trials and tribulations of being passed on to various caretakers throughout his life in the countryside of late 1800's England. The material presented Elfman with an opportunity to play into his tender dramatic side in a new setting, but the film's mixed reviews and lack of commercial success hurt the score's chances of reaching a wide audience and offering a rebuttal to silence the naysayers.

Right from the start of the album, Elfman's real talents as a master dramatist are perfectly displayed as he sets the tone for what kind of story is about to unfold and also of what type of score this is going to be. It might be written for a family film, but it's a lot more mature and sophisticated than that branding would lead on.

I love this music! It's so beautiful! Probably though it would have been okay to just by the Main Titles track to get my Black Beauty soundtrack fix.
