This CD starts off with a great mystery/suspense type cut that immediately grabs you. Track 2 gives us music sounding like it's coming from an old radio and will be instantly recognizable as music that is often heard in circuses. The CD then goes into several very short cues of suspense type music. There are 34 tracks on this CD with 14 of them under 1 minute with many as short as 6 - 10 seconds each. Track 13 has a jazz type feel to it and sounds like something that might be played in an old style jazz club.
Overall I was pleasantly surprised at how listenable and good the music on this CD was. I have seen this movie and the music also works well with the visuals.
