The music, visuals, and story were good, but there are other movies with much better music, visuals and stories.

It's not the most visually interesting piece and the song itself doesn't really stand out among it's peers, but the concepts that it juggles what with Jack, an avatar of Halloween and fear trying to rationalize what it is that appeals to him about Christmas and cheer just clicks with me, perhaps because this idea of trying to make sense of things and questioning yourself sounds familiar.

Watching Jack as he first enters Christmas Town is like watching a kid discover the world around him when he learns to walk.
