Danny Elfman has created a beautiful score for this film.
Mr. P. Greenhill
I can see how Milk would not appeal to fans of Elfman's earlier scores, and how some could even go so far as to consider it a little disappointing.
Jon Broxton
Hello Hello is an easy going song that makes me feel good.

The "Milk" soundtrack is excellent. The music is perfect for the movie. I love the music of the seventies. I grew up listening to this music.
I absolutely love the tracks "You Make Me Feel Real" and "Rock The Boat". These are great classic dance tracks. Another highlight is the track "Everyday People" by Sly and the Family Stone. This is a great track to bring people together. Hello Hello is an easy going song that makes me feel good. I love Danny Elfman's score especially his beautiful Harvey's theme. I also like the sax solo at the end. It is very relaxing. I love the tense dramatic sound of "Gay Rights Now". "Prelude Number Seven" is such a peaceful instrumental track. I love the angelic choir sound of "The Kiss" too.

Although many people nowadays will not know his name, Harvey Milk remains a hugely important figure in American political history. As the first ever openly gay man ever elected to public office in the United States, Milk served one term as a member of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors in the late 1970s, and was responsible for passing a stringent gay rights ordinance for the city, before being assassinated by fellow city supervisor Dan White in November 1978. Having already been the subject of an Oscar-winning documentary, `The Times of Harvey Milk', in 1984, director Gus Van Sant's new film charts the life and death of a man who has since been labeled `a martyr for gay rights' in dramatic narrative; the film stars Sean Penn as Milk, Josh Brolin as White, and features Emile Hirsch, Diego Luna and James Franco in supporting roles.

Milk is Danny Elfman's fourth collaboration with Gus Van Sant, after To Die For, Psycho and Good Will Hunting, and the second of these to result in an Oscar nomination for the erstwhile composer. As one might expect, Elfman's score portrays Milk as a noble, tragic figure in American political history, but thankfully stops short of all-out deification, instead recognizing the flawed, uncertain, human side of Milk's character, while still acknowledging the hugely important legacy he created for the accession of gay rights in California.

Anyone who has experienced the development of Danny Elfman's musical style over the years will understand what I mean when I say that Milk falls most assuredly into the `modern' end of his writing.

Danny Elfman has created a beautiful score for this film.I'm pleased that they put plenty of the score on the CD and didn't fill it with pop songs used in film that are available elsewhere.

Danny Elfman's soundtracks are immensely varied from, "Pee Wee's Big Adventure" and "Sleepy Hollow" to "Edward Scissorhands" and "The Simpson's". If you are familiar with these works, it will give you an idea of how varied and unique Elfman's compositions are. Some of this soundtrack's compositions are brilliantly insightful and moving, while others get lost in the background. Songs like, "Politics Is Theater", "Give `Em Hope" and both "Harvey's Themes" are beautifully written and played, but far, far too short. Most of the other songs sound like filler and deserved more input. To be noted, songs like, "Queen Bitch", "Everyday people" and "Rock The Boat" are more from the early to mid seventies and not directly from this time period, but Sylvester's wild, "You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)" is almost the anthem for this work and thankfully, the entire song is included. I felt this film deserved more than short mood music, but although it doesn't thrill, it doesn't detract from the film. Its curious that little operatic music was included, as Harvey Milk was such a huge fan. This film may have deserved more, but what Elfman gives is just enough.

One of my favorite movie sound tracks. The soundtrack is moving and descriptive. Danny Elfman has done a superb job creating the perfect mood/effect for the Milk movie. The sound track is moody, uplifting, deep, sensitive, joyful, bold, and more. Brings back so many great warm memories of the Castro I knew in the 60's through the 90's. It was history in the making, and we knew it. Play this soundtrack often. Never get tired of it.
