The Weepy Donuts Post.

There are those who believe Danny Elfman writes the same music for everything he does. Then there are those who know the truth. Listen to his latest score for regular collaborator Gus Van Sant, Milk, and try and tell me it sounds anything at all like Batman (Edward Scissorhands in some bits is a fairer point, but not much); it's almost conventional for him, but I doubt he'll be as hung out to dry by critics as James Horner was for his music for a movie with Sean Penn as a politico, All The King's Men. Still, what do they know? Half of them think Clint Eastwood is an excellent film scorer!

The FYC site for Focus Features includes the score in a stream on the Milk page (when you get there click on Milk and then "Score"). And if you're wondering why this is called "The Weepy Donuts Post"... if you have to ask, you don't know.

I don't know, then. Mind elaborating?
