I love the music from Oz The Great and Powerful.
Gail T. DiVico
The role and worth of film scores is often lost amidst larger discussions about the films themselves.
G M. Stathis
Danny Elfman again captures the spirit of the movie.

Waiting for the next Danny Elfman score to come out is like waiting for Christmas morning for me, but sometimes (though still great) you get a knit sweater and not exactly what you expected. With Oz however it was a full fledged awesome Xmas present with everything I wanted and perhaps expected in a fantastical Elfman-y score.
I adore Elfman's more playful tunes like you get from his earlier scores and a select few of his more recent ones. I knew I was in love with this soundtrack when the first few bells of that Main Titles piece chimed and my smiles didn't stop until the last note of the End Credits. I haven't heard anything this exciting since his wild and inspirational score for Meet the Robinsons. The score has a distant shadowing of his beautiful music for Cirque Du Soleil Iris and we even get to hear some of Danny himself singing on the Munchkin Welcome Song.
Along with some lovely swooping choir voices and the sweet tinkering of xylophones the score delivers some interesting new sounds from Elfman especially in the track A Strange World, I had no idea what I was listening to for a second but it surely did not disappoint :) We also get to hear some of his classic themes such as the "Oompa-Oompa!" in Meeting the Troops, the amazing opposites of a low strum from a cello with the high ringing of xylophones in The Preparation Montage, the "Catwoman" violin squeals accompanying the Wicked Witch themes and the rare, joyful sounds of a tumbling calliope over a pumping organ in the Main Titles.
All in all this is a wonderful addition to a soundtrack collection for any Elfman fan, don't pass it up!

Danny Elfman's score to Oz the Great and Powerful joins the ranks of his classic scores, and stands up there with any of them, even with the best of his collaborations with Tim Burton...like those films, Oz provided him with material perfectly suited to his distinctive style. And in turn, he employed that style to compose music perfectly suited to Oz, helping to bring out its essential qualities of innocence and wonder, but also the strangeness and darkness that pervade it.

This is evident from the opening notes of the music box theme that is so integral to the story and is woven throughout the score, sometimes in its basic form and sometimes in lush string arrangements. We first hear the music box theme during the Disney logo, which then leads into a wonderful "Main Titles" that plays almost like a concert overture, giving us a taste of things to come. This is followed by the beautifully intimate "A Serious Talk", the hyper kinetic "Oz Revealed", and the wondrous "A Strange World". "Fireside Dance" is utterly enchanting. Other highlights include the heartbreakingly gorgeous "China Town", the sweetness and then whirlwind inventiveness of "Bedtime/The Preparation Montage", and the triumphant recap of "Time for Gifts" and "End Credits from Oz".

And everything in between makes for a great listening experience too, full of sweeping melodies and wonderful touches of color from xylophones and choral arrangements, over an hour of pure Elfman magic! This is one soundtrack every fan of Elfman, or just of great film music in general, should definitely add to his or her library.

A majestic score. See the film, buy this and be taken away all over again. There is never any doubt in Elfman's music.

I like this score, and having watched a 3-D TV broadcast on Starz, after seeing it in 3-D at the theaters, I fell in love with this score. And I am enjoying it in the car. If you like this composer's work, and you like to listen to orchestral movie soundtrack recordings, this is a good one!

Elfman is really good at magical, mystical and fantasy, but this is a new chapter in an American classic
and who knows how this would all fair. The movie itself didn't do much for me, but I thought the score was
one of the better parts of the project.

I learn from Danny Elfman how to create a fairy book score . Listening to his compositions is a great way to understand how to embellish this type of movie
