Here's a tidbit about a new disc that I thought might be of interest to members here. Read on for the details:

On September 30th, Walt Disney Records unveils Nightmare Revisited with 20 fresh recordings and beloved covers of the music, mayhem, and merriment from Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas.

Danny Elfman returns to recapture the musical landscape he masterfully created for the original The Nightmare Before Christmas soundtrack with two brand new recordings of the “Opening” and “Closing.” Adding a new tantalizing twist to Nightmare favorites, Nightmare Revisited also boasts Korn, Amy Lee, Plain White T’s, Rise Against, Rodrigo y Gabriela, and Flyleaf. Of course the soundtrack could not be complete without a popular ghost of Nightmare’s past: Marilyn Manson’s eerie cover of “This Is Halloween.”

Each artist re-imagines the most beloved Nightmare anthems, incorporating their signature styles and bringing a hauntingly delightful new sound to life.

Danny Elfman adds, "The new Nightmare Revisited is much more diverse compared to the 13th Anniversary Special Edition. The approach in every song is different. Instead of just covering the songs, they turned groups loose on the score itself. Hearing all these interpretations of the songs and score is a huge treat. There are bands with their psychedelic abstract visions – Sparkle Horse, Vitamin String Quartet and Polyphonic Spree - and they’re counter-balanced with solid performances by Korn, Rise Against and All American Rejects."

Here's a track listing:

I just got it and am listening to it now. I had heard the Manson song on last year's re-release of the soundtrack and really liked it. I love Korn's version of Kidnap the Sandy Claws. I also love Amy Lee's song but it's not too different from the original. The only one I've heard so far that I don't like is Sparklehorse's song.

I downloaded this yesterday from amazon.
I love the Finale/Reprise - Shiny Toy Guns, it gave me goose bumps lol!
But i prefer the Kidnap the Sandy Claws from She Wants Revenge on the special edition album better.
The town meeting song sounds like something out of a rock opera, or Rent.
Im waiting for them to make a broadway musical out of this movie and all these renditions make it seem possible.
