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.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

The Nightmare Before Christmas Lives On 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…

The purely original soundrack would have been just fine My only copy of this album was on cassette, and I finally decided to replace it. Some of the redone tracks are good, but most I don’t care for, because the original music is perfection, and why mess with that? So, 4 stars instead of 5 because someone tried to sell more albums by adding more stuff, and I couldn’t just buy the original soundtrack.

For Your Halloween Soundtrack Needs! 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.
