Very Pretty Album with a Taste of Christmas

Usually I don’t buy an entire album from a movie, just a couple tracks that I especially enjoy, but I believed this was worth purchasing the whole album. I really felt in the Christmas spirit when listening to these songs. James Newton Howard is always a great composer and I loved how they mixed traditional Nutcracker strains in with his original music.

Let down.

The music in the trailers was superb but the soundtrack I just listened to is subpar at best. Highly disappointed.

How are you going to have a nutcracker movie and not even have “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy” in the soundtrack. They had an excellent score for the trailer, but for whatever reason you will not find that in this soundtrack. I waited MONTHS for this. In fact, I never write reviews on here, but I am so angry about not having one song. To be fair, music is decently written, but not enough real nutcracker music. Next time don’t tease everyone with something incredible in the trailer that’s not even in the soundtrack. That’s like putting an epic scene in the trailer and then it’s not in the movie. 1 Star.
