One of those scores that changed the musical ear of Danny Elfman as this score was epic and beautiful. I believe at this point many of the music composed by Elfman was dark as this takes a journey to a story more familiar to many of a horse. He has always given us a great score, but this one was more of a powerful piece. Now La-La Land shares that journey in a remastered/expanded version that will make you remember your love for Elfman's work as it did for me.
