The majority of the album isn't in the film -- cuts from such artists as Björk, Longpigs, Skunk Anansie, and Cast are mainly album filler selected for a vague relationship to the movie. The Adam Clayton/Larry Mullen update of the classic theme is OK, but that same epithet applies also to Danny Elfman's somewhat generic-sounding music. Come to think of it, the entire album tends strongly toward the generic -- just perfect for the airplay end of the spectrum, no doubt.
