Before I knew Brian Tyler as the composer of Bubba Ho-tep, my ears already knew his work. Having sat through Six-String Samurai, the part that stuck out more than any other was the music.
Tyler is in even better form here, combining both a sense of rock-n-roll dread, egyptian mystique, and haunting vocals. This is the perfect soundtrack for a night at home with friends, or cruising along the highway.

I had the pleasure of watching this extremely entertaining dvd tonight. As the movie progressed, i couldn't help thinking how wonderfull the music was every time it played, and by the end i was dying to know what the tunes were. I had no clue it was an orignal soundtrack. Much to my delight there was the most entertaining bonus features i have probably ever seen included on a dvd. And yes there's an interview with the director and composer to finish this masterpiece. What a talent, Brian Tyler actually played every instrument and sang the vocals as well. I will have to buy this cd and investigate his other work as well. WOW!!!!! I actually cried watching the bonus features about the soundtrack. Completely and uterly brilliant. Thanks for the music!

The strange, haunting, and brilliant "Bubba Ho-Tep" is my favorite in the horror genre. It actually touches several genres and isn't that easy to classify, of course, much like the soundtrack to the film by Brian Tyler who not only composed all the music, but performed all the instrumental and vocal parts on the soundtrack as well. I truly feel that the movie is immensely more powerful thanks to this music, a statement that can be made about most films, but in this case especially. The music ranges from straight rock and roll on "One Bad Ho-Tep", to surf music on "PBBS", to scary haunting Egyptian chantings in tracks such as "Elder Hole", to fifties slow dance pop on "The Shady Rest." Of all the music on the CD, though, the best is the classic theme found in several variations throughout the soundtrack, notably on "The King's Highway", and "Bubba Ho-Tep End Title Themes."
When you see this movie be sure to watch the special feature on Brian Tyler and the making of the soundtrack. This edition is an autographed edition, and costs a bit more and is scarce, but the same musical material is available without the signatures at a lower price.
I am not generally a fan of soundtracks, but once you see the movie, and hear the music, I think you will understand why I make an exception here. I highly recommend this CD.

As a new film-composer Bryan Tyler has made a name for himself by scoring smaller scale movies before he got his big break with mainstream movies like Darkness Falls and Timeline (only after Jerry Goldsmith's score was rejected). Of all his scores so far, Bubba Ho-Tep is his absolute best.

Obviously you know the movie is about an old-age Elvis battling a mummy in a Texas retirement home. It's not so much a wacky Evil Dead comedy-horror as it is a metaphor for getting old. Tyler's gorgeous main theme reflects exactly that and is filled with regret, sadness and maybe even the slightest feeling of hope. Part of it's brilliance is that it works the way you interpret it.

I owned the CD long before I got the DVD of Bubba Ho-Tep and I must say the score stands well on it's own. It's one of those CDs you can put on no matter what mood you're in and it'll affect you in some way. Sometimes it'll bring you close to tears and at other it's utterly uplifting. How many modern film scores can do that?

An absolute MUST buy for fans of the film (how can you not be?) and essential for those of you who just, plain and simple, love good music.

Having seen the actual movie just recently I was taken back by the atmosphere of the film. The feeling of isolation, the twilight of life and what lies ahead. A major part of that experience was in fact the score by Brian Tyler. I rushed to my computer and ordered my copy of the soundtrack immediately following the movie. This is not just any motion picture score, it is in my opinion one of the most well written pieces of music ever to be written and it holds its ground next to the all time classics. 100% Americana. I myself am an avid collector of movie scores and Bubba Ho-Tep has already earned it's place as one of my all time favorites. This isn't just a great soundtrack for a great movie, this is a the soundtrack for the everyman. It's a journey of emotion. From the vibrant toe tapping yahoo of "The Kings Highway" to the bittersweet tear jerking "All is Well" this is one cd that needs to be in the collection of any serious collector.
