Product Description

The Nightmare Before Christmas 2 Disc Special Edition soundtrack will release against the premiere of the new 3D version opening in theaters nationwide 10/20/06. The bonus disc features such artists as Marilyn Manson, Fiona Apple, Fall Out Boy and She Wants Revenge and of course Danny Elfamn. The initial pressings will contain a 3CD lenticular cover.

Amazon.com

Not only is The Nightmare Before Christmas one of the best musicals of the past two decades; it may well be Danny Elfman's masterpiece, successfully integrating his main influences (from Cab Calloway to Nino Rota) into a fantastic whole. The first disc of this reissue features the original soundtrack, its songs still teetering between dark humor and poetic flights of fancy; this so-called kids' music is at least as sophisticated and skilled as anything you're likely to hear on Broadway. The second disc includes demo versions of four songs on which Elfman plays and sings everything, and five new covers of some of Nightmare's best-loved songs. Marilyn Manson successfully applies his spooky Weimar-circus style on "This Is Halloween" while Panic! At the Disco's lushly orchestrated take on the same tune is closer to the original. Fiona Apple's poignant "Sally's Song" is enhanced by very nice string charts, and She Wants Revenge does a disco take on "Kidnap the Sandy Claws." Best perhaps is Fall Out Boy's cover of "What's This?" which sounds like an unexpected cross between the Beach Boys and Queen. A highly recommended set. --Elisabeth Vincentelli

I was iffy about purchasing this as I already owned a copy of the sountrack. The remastering, however, is top notch. Nothing more needs to be said of the great soundtrack itself.

The second disc is a mixed bag. There are two really good covers, one that's okay, and two that are just deplorable. Marilyn Manson and Danny Elfman is a match made in heaven (and I use that term VERY loosely). Manson's approach to the vocals encapsulates his own style while maintaining every piece of integrity of the original. I've never been a fan of Fiona Apple, but the emotional breadth given to Sally's Song deserves accolades. It's beautiful, taking the song to new heights. Fall Out Boy does a credible "What's This," which is fun, even if its nothing spectacular. She Wants Revenge, still trying to capitalize on the fame of Interpol and the newfound love of Post punk industrial is montonous in their version of Kidnap the Sandy Claws. I've concluded that all She Wants Revenge songs sound the same. Panic At the Disco give us a weird, overdramatic version of This Is Halloween. Its failure is that it is not fun, and it's a fun song.

Then there are the demos. These are fantastic, if for no other reason, then because Elfman does all the vocals himself. There is a note in the liner notes saying "All vocals by Danny Elfman" in regards to the demos. He does some amazing work, probably fooling with many synths and vocal layering. This is Halloween and Kidnap the Sandy Claws really show this. Of particular interest though are the cuts that were done to Making Christmas. It's fun to hear a version that was clearly a work in progress. Despite these being demos and Elfman probably only needing to provide a guiding vocal, he really has fun with these.

I bought this edition for the bonus disc and the 3D cover, but I am also pleased to say that the new mix of the original soundtrack is cleaner, more clear, more fun to listen to. Maybe it is too subtle a difference for casual listeners, for me it is newly fresh.

The bonus disc is great especially for the Elfman demos.

When I first heard Panic! At The Disco's version of This is Halloween, I quite enjoyed it. So I searched my mp3 app to download it, but the only version I could find was when they did the aol first listen. Well, naturally, I found that a little irritating and just wanted to get the song without any speaking interrupting the song. Which of course, the search led me to the special edition of the original Nightmare Before Christmas Soundtrack. It does have all the original songs and a second disc that has Panic! At The Disco, Marilyn Manson, Fall Out Boy, She Wants Revenge and Fiona Apple performing some of your favorite songs. Well, I was pleasantly surprised on some of their takes on the songs and found them quite enjoyable! I would recommend this disc to anyone who enjoys soundtracks, but may want a little bit of an edge to some of their favorite songs.

I really liked this album; I was in a Halloween mood and it provided a great soundtrack for building my costume. The original versions are nice and clear, and just what I'd hoped they'd be. The covers are a mixed bag of really good and really "whut?", as is frequently the case with covers.
Please note that if you order the whole album for download, you DO get the covers that say "album only". I had mistakenly thought that I could only get the covers from the physical album, so that was a nice surprise.

Not having the couple of extra bucks to get a brand new cd I bought a used one, I usually like to buy everything new but in this case I was happy to have bought this used cd. Except for some major wear on the outside of the case which is normal the two cd's and book were in excellent condition and looked as if someone like me took care of it since I take great care in my products but especially my cd's and dvd's since they can get scrathes very easily. It also arrived very quickly. I enjoy the fact the booklet has all of the lyrics to the first cd in it and what character in the movie was singing which part (ex. Jack, Sally, Oogie Boogie, Mayor, etc.) the bonus cd does not have the lyrics to it only who was the singer but you can look at the original song lyrics for this. A cool thing was there is a 3D like picture of Jack which is the front picture in the cd case and since I have an entire wall in my house filled with them this really added to my love for the cd. The original songs were so clear and you can hear a lot more detail to the voices and lyrics then in the movie because your ears are focused on the songs instead of trying to watch the movie and listen to the music. The bonus songs I was unsure if I was going to like them or not but each artist did them spot on for their style I especially like how Marilyn Manson did "This Is Halloween". The cd inserts and booklet also have pictures of the characters from the movie in it to enjoy while reading the lyrics or listening to the cd. If you are a "The Nightmare Before Christmas" fan or someone who is going to just watch it this cd is worth the money to buy.
