Men In Black
Danny Elfman

Review

The soundtrack to the smash hit that we thought would never come. No, I'm not talking about that album with the funky rap by Mr. Smith, but the music by the real artist, Mr. Elfman.

After anticipating the score for quite some time, I found that it wasn't quite as good as I remembered it being in the movie. It worked superbly in the movie, but works less well on its own. It's the usual quirky kind of stuff that Elfman likes, so is best suited to science fiction, especially the light hearted stuff.

Nice album, but there are better ones for roleplaying.
