The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars is because I love the old synthesizer sounds from the 80's soundtracks so much more. I found them to be creepier and unsettling. That being said, this is of course a more modern take and revamp and this music fits the new movie perfectly. I have many albums worth of this kind of dark orchestral music and this is a very well done one. It is perfect for me as background music when playing some of the darker boardgames and tabletop RPGs that I enjoy. It is also well suited for listening to while reading Horror stories (my favorite kind.) And of course if you are a fan of the movie or this style of music.... don't hesitate to pick this up.

I like the Nightmare on Elm Street remake and I like the soundtrack for it just as much. The Main Title and Jump Rope are my favorite tracks on the CD. Steve Jablonsky is one of my favorite composers and it's great that he did the soundtrack for this. The atmosphere is dark and sometimes creepy. The CD release is good too, and has cool pictures on it and credits for the people who played the instruments. Definitely buy the soundtrack even if you don't like the movie, and also give the movie another chance. It's never going to be as great as the first and Jackie Earle Haley isn't quite as good as Robert Englund, but Robert Englund can't play Freddy forever, but it's still a really good movie on its own. Don't miss out on this even if you don't like the movie, because this is a good soundtrack. Buy this CD even if you like creepy music, because it's good. The soundtrack alone is good enough for me to like the movie. I can listen to this over and over and never get tired of it.

The movie itself was ok. A bit slow, the nightmares could have been cooler. But it was a fun ride. The theater was packed and people seemed to be having a good time which is all that matters I guess.

When the movie started the music over the credits got my attention. I was surprised that it was kind of emotional, not at all what I would expect. I downloaded that track from iTunes and ended up buying the whole CD. I like it a lot because you get the creepy scary stuff, but there's also nice emotional stuff like "Where The Monster Live". I think that is the part where we flashback to Freddy at the school. I really like this music, it makes you feel something for these kids.

"Freddy's Coming" is another cool track. The name is very fitting because it sounds like Freddy is coming after you :)

I think my favorite track is "Like It Used To Be". I think it must be from the end of the movie, even though I don't remember some of it. It's really dramatic and exciting and has a nice theme at the end. I'm listening to it right now :)

So I would recommend this to horror fans but also to fans of emotional movie scores. Transformers is one of my favorite scores of all time, and I think Steve Jablonsky was a good choice for this new Freddy movie. And I also think Jackie Earle Haley was the perfect choice to play Freddy!

I personally preferred the original theme. This one is good to go only not as full of atmosphere for my taste. But being a musician myself I won't Knock it, gets the job done
