"Night Breed" seems to represent to me the pinnacle of Danny Elfman's achievement as a composer, equalled only by his astounding work on "Batman". The music on this album is haunting, mesmerizing and very, very dark. I highly recommend it.

This is a deliciously dark score, but it has a lighter side that shows Elfman's versatility. Listenable all the way through, but there are stand-out tracks. I especially loved track 13 ("Uh-oh...Decker!") which layers a bunch of creepy strings...shudder! (In a good way.)

"Nightbreed" represents the pinnacle of Danny Elfman's dark, scary music. While "Batman" presented a dark, heroic score, "Nightbreed" plunges the listener into the bizarre, nightmarish depths of Midian, where the dead walk. Nothing Elfman has composed since can equal the dark tone and mood of this score. I highly recommend this to horror music fans, and especially to fans of Danny Elfman. It's a must-have, especially at this low price!!!

Nightbreed, like many of Danny Elfmans other scores is one filled of magic and mystical melodies and themes. The main theme for Nightbreed is a brillant piece of compositional work, with a chour and a orchestra reaching a cresendo in the opening of the theme. This provides us with a very nice wake up call and allows us to know what kind of world we are diving in to. Unfortuantly, this is really the only track that reached out to me and I feel that this score has somewhat been "Uninspired" by Danny Elfman (possibly due to the fact that I thought the movie itself was "uninspired"). There are not many cues that really grab you (apart from the main title) and the music seems to have no direction. This doesn't mean that it is a bad score, just don't except it to paint a picture for you of the world that is contained in Nigtbreed. An enjoyable score that shouldn't be focused on too much when listening to it.

Nightbreed is a fairly medicore film, its atmosphere is cloudy and somewhat blurred. This is due in part to Danny Elfman's score. While the opening theme is pleasant enough, with choral echoes providing backing to the strings, the theme is more tonal than melodic. The end titles are more dramatic, more structured. The music throughout the film varies in quality, some of the cues a little too incidental for a true film score, but there are some appropriate and often spirited uses of strings.
Not a bad score altogether, but only average for Elfman.

I can't figure out why Danny Elfman doesn't list this score with his credits. It is one of the finest soundtracks I have enjoyed since the debut of the film. If you loved the film, get this soundtrack. And while you're at it, get the director's cut of Nightbreed -- it's a completely different film...soundtrack remains the same.

It's a shame this score is forgotten by alot of people, as with the movie. Both were awesome. It is also a shame it isn't even available. I used to listen to this score alot. It has all the signiture Danny Elfman motifs but stands out unigue, I feel, among the other scores he's produced.

Lets hope for an MP3 album.

mind you this was when danny elfman was really trying to get established, it's a great start for him. I found myself loving this movie more, when I heard danny elfman's music. It's was a great way to begin his career from clive barker to tim burton. He has had a great career, all in all.
