Planet of the Apes [Original Motion Picture Soundtrack]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Andrew Velez
On his score for the summer 2001 revisiting of Planet of the Apes, Grammy-winning and Oscar-nominated composer Danny Elfman Mission Impossible, Batman once again shows his mastery at blending varied percussion and a full orchestra in exciting and innovative ways. For Apes, he reconnects with director Tim Burton, and the results recall Elfman's beautiful score for Edward Scissorhands. He builds musical thunder on "The Return," which deceptively begins with a lyrical passage before shifting into a rising crescendo and exploding into "Main Title Deconstruction," a percussion-based track drawing on eclectic instrumentation, from large West African xylophones to upside-down ...

Barnes & Noble - Andrew Velez
On his score for the summer 2001 revisiting of Planet of the Apes, Grammy-winning and Oscar-nominated composer Danny Elfman Mission Impossible, Batman once again shows his mastery at blending varied percussion and a full orchestra in exciting and innovative ways. For Apes, he reconnects with director Tim Burton, and the results recall Elfman's beautiful score for Edward Scissorhands. He builds musical thunder on "The Return," which deceptively begins with a lyrical passage before shifting into a rising crescendo and exploding into "Main Title Deconstruction," a percussion-based track drawing on eclectic instrumentation, from large West African xylophones to upside-down beer cans played with tiny mallets. The resulting clamor echoes the menacing plotline by evoking a sense of inescapable danger. Ace club DJ Paul Oakenfold who recently scored Swordfish caps the disc off with "Rule the Planet Remix," in which a seductive female voice ominously intones, "Some say it was just a fairy tale...." over a hypnotic mix of percussive thunder and heady electronic beats. With their new take on an American classic, Elfman and Burton once again make it cool to go ape crazy.
All Music Guide - Neil Shurley
For Tim Burton's "reimagining" of Planet of the Apes, Danny Elfman produced a dynamic, thundering score filled with powerhouse brass and percussion. Fundamentally based around a rising three-note motif, the score opens with the extended "Main Titles," then launches straight into the standout "Ape Suite #1," an overture-like introduction to the main elements of the score. Another terrific cue is "The Hunt," a whirling descent into the heart of the story filled with jungle rhythms and battling brass and underscored by throbbing electronics. Unlike Jerry Goldsmith's groundbreaking score for the original Planet of the Apes, Elfman's music remains centered around a tonal base, branching into some extended percussion passages but never breaking into the atonality that was so effective in Goldsmith's work. A few quiet moments occur between orchestral eruptions, but this is primarily loud, propulsive action music. Only Paul Oakenfold's "Rule the Planet Remix" seems out of place.

    *webmaster needs to correct this page

    The track listing for the Planet of the Apes-2001 CD has 'by Pete Anthony' at the end of every track entry. Since the score is by Danny Elfman, this is incorrect. Pete Anthony conducted the orchestra during the recording , but did not write or orchestrate any of the music. Please correct this.
