A far better score than the film deserves
By: LadyInque
Date: 26 Jun 2009
Rating:
Of course, in this case, the score being better than the film really isn’t saying much. Alan Silvestri wrote his heart out, writing music with a big, gothic sound and thunderous choir. This is, after all, a big, loud, movie. After a while, the tracks start to blend into each other, and the score gets boring quickly. Granted, that doesn’t happen if you’re listening one track at a time here at SST, but you may have trouble finding the more interesting tracks. Overall, I think this is a good score, but the CD is too heavy on the action music.

The album does not start off softly. “Transylvania 1887” is brassy and bombastic, and “Burn it Down!” picks up where the previous track left off, thereby setting the tone for the rest of the album. By “Werewolf Trap,” you really get the picture.

So here’s what’s different. For scenes of characters traveling, Silvestri uses a nifty flamenco guitar. It has nothing to do with the Transylvanian setting, but convey the excitement nicely. There is also some lush romantic music, which shows up in “Reunited.” It’s not subtle; little on the album is, but it gives a nice break between the headache-inducing action tracks. And I like “All Hallow’s Eve Ball,” which underscores the (standard, by now) scene of a vampire’s ball, complete with heroine in a red dress. The sweeping waltz is, perhaps, a cliché, but it works.

Request: “Journey to Transylvania” “All Hallow’s Eve Ball” “Reunited”
Avoid: “Dracula’s Nursery,” because it’s dull. I know that I complain about a lack of subtlety in this score, but while this track was playing, I honestly thought something was wrong with my speakers.

LadyInque, I really like the way you end most of your reviews; i.e., with the Request and Avoid along with why.
I hope people search out some of your other reviews - they are excellent!
