I theorize that the best art that stands the test of time has mass appeal and is original. I feel that in order to create art like this, takes an insane amount of depth of analysis and countless hours of exploring music that inspires you to develop your craft.

I find Elfman a true genius whose music is great as accompaniment to film and stand alone works of art.

His eccentric sound that appeals to the child in all of us really does it for me!

In his "The Story of Music" video series, Howard Goodall points at some of Elfman's music as being a product of the New German school of Berlioz, Liszt, Wagner, and I think Strauss. I think it was something from Batman he used. Elfman is a very creative composer. He writes some great music.
