Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Of "HITCHCOCK" With Music By Danny Elfman Available December 4, 2012

Press release dari Sony Music, berikut kutipannya:
The soundtrack is by Danny Elfman, four-time Oscar® nominee who has established himself as one of the most versatile and accomplished film composers in the industry. He has collaborated with such directors as Tim Burton, Gus Van Sant, Sam Raimi, Paul Haggis, Ang Lee, Rob Marshall, Guillermo del Toro, Brian De Palma, Peter Jackson and David O. Russell. Beginning with his first score on Tim Burton's PEE-WEE'S BIG ADVENTURE, Elfman has scored a broad range of films, including: MILK (Oscar nominated), GOOD WILL HUNTING (Oscar nominated), BIG FISH (Oscar nominated), MEN IN BLACK (Oscar nominated), EDWARD SCISSORHANDS, WANTED, CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY, MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE, PLANET OF THE APES, A SIMPLE PLAN, TO DIE FOR, SPIDERMAN (1 & 2), BATMAN, DOLORES CLAIBORNE, SOMMERSBY, CHICAGO, DICK TRACY, THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS and ALICE IN WONDERLAND. Most recently he provided the music for Gus Van Sant's PROMISED LAND, Tim Burton's FRANKENWEENIE and David O' Russell's SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK. Up next for Elfman is Sam Raimi's OZ: THE GREAT AND POWERFUL.
The music for the shower scene of PSYCHO, written by Bernard Herrmann, is one of the most famous compositions in movie history. Hitchcock had wanted this scene without music, but was so pleased with the effect of screeching violins, violas, and cellos that he later stated that "33% of the effect of PSYCHO was due to the music." Herrmann's original score was adapted by Danny Elfman in 1998 when Gus Van Sant directed a remake – connections that now come full circle with the choice of Elfman as composer for HITCHCOCK. With the release of this soundtrack by Sony Music, fans of the great director Hitchcock and lovers of movie music will be able to enjoy for themselves the quality of Elfman's work.

Silver Linings Playbook (Score Album) Music By Danny Elfman

Situs Examiner mem-publish score review dari Danny Gonzalez untuk film Silver Linings Playbook dan memberi grade A-, berikut kutipannya:
the songs are solid and the best part is that Danny Elfman has written an exceptional score that really does work with the songs, but it's such a fun and catchy work. The score is pretty much and in some ways is an extension of his solid previous works for Good Will Hunting, To Die For and A Civil Action. There is a cheerful exuberance to Elfman's score that is very infectious and feels like forever since he's done something this much fun and joyful. From the on set starting with "Silver Lining Titles", Elfman utilizes a more intimate approach to the material with a smaller sized orchestra featuring acoustic guitar, keyboard, drums along with a terrific chorus that just has the feel of a Manhattan Transfer album that really is just infectious. 
To have Elfman in this mode again is wonderful because you can really hear him having fun with the material and some of his best scores seem to be for more intimate and character driven stories like this one. Silver Linings Playbook is easily one of my favorite scores this year and also one of Danny Elfman's most enjoyable and engaging works in a really long time. Highly recommended.
