Big Fish – Sony Classical

Danny Elfman looks like winning big awards for Big Fish, his sumptuous score for Tim Burton's best film. His track record—Men In Black, Good Will Hunting, Spider-Man—suggests they might even decide it's his turn for an Oscar. Supporting his work here is a stream of era-evoking pop songs from Elvis ("All Shook Up"), Buddy Holly ("Everyday"), Bing Crosby, The Allman Brothers and Canned Heat. And—perhaps incongruously—a new Pearl Jam track, "Man Of The Hour".

Danny Elfman looks like winning big awards for Big Fish, his sumptuous score for Tim Burton’s best film. His track record?Men In Black, Good Will Hunting, Spider-Man?suggests they might even decide it’s his turn for an Oscar. Supporting his work here is a stream of era-evoking pop songs from Elvis (“All Shook Up”), Buddy Holly (“Everyday”), Bing Crosby, The Allman Brothers and Canned Heat. And?perhaps incongruously?a new Pearl Jam track, “Man Of The Hour”. Written within days of first viewing the film, it begins: “Tidal waves don’t beg forgiveness.” Go with the flow.
