Editorial Reviews

'The Danny Elfman & Tim Burton 25th Anniversary Music Box,' a very special box set that features expansions of the 13 original scores that Elfman has composed for Burton's iconic films. This is a newly-produced library of 16 CDs each packaged with artwork by Burton, adding up to more than 19 hours of music, including 7 hours of previously-unreleased Masters, demos, work tapes and other rarities.
-Among the 19 hours of music are seven hours of previously unreleased music including such rarities as additional masters, cut songs, song and score demos, work tapes, orchestra-only song mixes, and foreign-language songs.
-'Danse Macabre: 25 Years of Danny Elfman and Tim Burton': A meticulously researched, lavishly illustrated 250+ page fine linen-wrapped hardbound book, entitled with gold foil stamping, and featuring a foreword by Johnny Depp. The book also includes rare photos, stories, and interviews from the cast and crew behind the scenes of this classic music from the early days of Elfman's band Oingo Boingo to the recent blockbuster film 'Alice in Wonderland.' Interviewed are such collaborators and peers as Guillermo Del Toro, Phillip Glass, Paul Haggis, James Newton Howard, Tom Jones, Michael Keaton, Ang Lee, Errol Morris, Thomas Newman, Catherine O'Hara, Jon Peters, Paul Reubens, David Rockwell, Scott Rudin, Marc Shaiman, Howard Shore, Twyla Tharp, Gus Van Sant, and Richard Zanuck. This comprehensive 10x10 keepsake book is written by acclaimed film-music journalist Jeff Bond and designed by Grammy-winning designer Matt Taylor.
-An hour-long exclusive, newly filmed DVD featuring an extended conversation between Burton and Elfman as they reflect on their quarter-century of collaboration.
-As a collectible created exclusively for this treasure box of music and inspired by the art of Tim Burton, a distinctive Skeleton Key USB Flash Drive has been designed. A pull of the key unlocks a USB drive loaded with MP3s of the entire contents of this Music Box. From 'Pee-Wee's Big Adventure' through 'Alice In Wonderland,' it's all here, including bonus tracks, demos, work tapes, and other rarities.
-Newly created liner notes by Elfman discuss each expanded score and the bonus material.

A collection of music as unique as Elfman's for the films of Tim Burton needed to be housed in something equally special, wondrous, and whimsical. Designed to evoke a treasure chest found in a mysterious attic, 'The Danny Elfman & Tim Burton 25th Anniversary Music Box' is a work of art in itself. Grammy-winning designer Matt Taylor has transformed previously unseen art by Burton and crafted a large scale, tin-covered music box complete with an embedded music chip playing 'The Music Box Suite,' arranged and performed by Elfman specifically for this historic collection.
And to literally top it all off, with a flip of the lid, a delightful working zoetrope is revealed featuring strips of art and photos by Tim Burton and Danny Elfman that come to animated life with a spin.

I am very disappointed with this item. as one reviewer stated it is very cheaply put together... the one that I received is falling apart. A couple of the CD's will not play correctly and the CD covers are printed very cheap paper... also a couple of items were missing, such as a letter from Danny Elfman and a flash drive. The book however is quite nice, but I didn't spend close to five hundred dollars for a book. I am just so disappointed!!!!.

This was given to me as a birthday present this year. When it arrived, the box was badly damaged; the lid was falling apart and the box was coming apart at the corners. We managed to fix the problems, however when you pay this amount of money for something, you don't expect it to be DIY.

Also, I have read in other reviews that the music chip doesn't work in many of the boxes. This may be because you have to unscrew the lid and put the batteries in properly.

On a positive note though, the contents were on a whole undamaged and in good condition. It is important to note, however that the USB is only compatible with Microsoft computers.

In terms of what is included in the boxset, it is well worth having. If you're interested in film scores and the composition process, and a fan of Burton and Elfman, this is definitely for you. It includes all the demos and deleted tracks from over the course of the Elfman/Burton partnership, as well as each film score in its entirety. The USB also contains twenty bonus tracks, mainly demos and instrumental arrangements.

In summary, is this worth all the money? No. However, the contents are very enlightening and well worth it if you're interested in the field.

I must say that I am pretty excited about this Music Box. I have a couple things in my favor:
1) I have never previously owned any Danny Elfman Music
2) I bought the second run, unnumbered edition [which seems to not have as many structural problems as the limited edition model according to all the research I did].
3) I bought it for $280 including shipping, I did not have to pay full price $500 plus the $25 shipping from Warner Bros.

What needed to be fixed when I received it:
1) embossed metal panels were coming up on the corners: Solution: used two part epoxy with a toothpick inside the corners and used masking tape to hold it together overnight.
2) there is a random piece of black velvet inside of the box I still need to glue down.

What works and looks great so far:

USB Skeleton key: Awesome!
Beautiful Book
CD's look good so far, I've only listened to Edward Scissorhands
The Zoetrope works great!
Letter from Danny Elfman all there.
There is a DVD with an almost 1:45 minute interview with Tim Burton and Danny Elfman, really cool.

A couple of things, it's HUGE and Heavy! 20 lbs...15" x 12" x 12"

I am completely happy and still geeking out about it. For the price I paid, it is an excellent value, especially considering what I mentioned above. I am a big Tim Burton/Danny Elfan fangirl, so I'm biased and very forgiving. They must have fixed alot of the problems form the limited edition run of 1000, because this unnumbered edition of 1000 that I received is awesome :)

To be fair I want to first point out that I did not buy this on Amazon, but bought it directly from Warner Bros. I am a huge Burton and Elman fan, and was sooooo excited about this box set. My Mom, knowing how much I would love it, bought it for me as a Christmas present. She even paid extra for shipping to ensure that she received it in time to wrap it and put it under the tree. She then received a notice stating that the box set was delayed until February due to problems with the construction of the zoetrope box. I didn't care as I was still really excited about it. Then in February we received another notice stating that it would be delayed again. I was a little bummed, but knew once I got it the wait would be worth it. If only I had realized what a pain the whole process was going to turn out to be.

The box set finally arrived at the end of April, but the box itself was damaged. There was bowing on the sides of the box & the metal plates were pulling away from the sides, the paper covering the top of the box was peeling off in places, the music chip in the lid of the box didn't work, and the zoetrope would not spin freely.

We contacted Warner Bros who simply shoved us off on Shorewood Packaging, the company who produced the boxes. We had to pay to ship it back to them (with promise of a refund) only to receive a second box that had many of the same problems. Multiple phone calls were not returned until emails were sent in which Warner Bros was copied on. We were then told that the bowing in the box and the metal plates pulling away from the side was normal and was inherent in all of the boxes, so that was not considered defective.

This arrived to me extremely damaged. As in none of the walls of the box were connected, and huge holes in all side. So with photos I requested a replacement with better packaging incase this damage was done through shipping.
However the next replacement was even more so damaged, the biz was actually snapped, bigger holes, poorer packaging (after requesting better packaging). A refund was given to me upon its return of not even the full value, $200 less intact, not even including shipping from Australia which to the US is the most expensive specially for a parcel this size.
Would not recommend purchasing this through Amazon. Extremely poor service and I was denied to request another as "we are out of stock" this is a limited edition item, and was a present to a loved one. Try explaining that.
Very poor and extremely disappointed.

Lower Price
Some really shady price adjustments have been going on with this product in the last month. The listing price was originally $500 when it first went up for order, just like Warner's site. With the 20% off it made it around $475. Now they marked up the listing price to $624 so the 20% off is just... Read More
