Finally a brilliant Harry Potter score
John Williams today is so big that it is impossible for any established critique to complain about his score but while Williams has crated a permanent mark for himself in the halls of film tracks, he is not what he used to be. The music he composed for the Harry Potter series, despite the importance of the series was not brilliant in anyway - just slightly above average and way short of what the series deserved. Call it providence, but the coming of Patrick Doyle in to the seat occupied by Williams has been good news. Doyle probably put all his effort into composing the music for Goblets of Fire. Doyle's work is nothing short of brilliant. I would rate the music for this movie as the best Original Sound Track since Howard Shore's work on Lord of the Rings. This is the kind of music that the series has always deserved and no movie did like this one. Goblets of fire is without doubt the best movie in the Harry Potter series, thus far. Only a dedicated music director like Patrick Doyle could do justice to the series, he has created a new identity for the music of the series. Though a central theme should bind the movies together, and John Williams original track for the series will be missed. I wonder why the only good score that was composed for the series by Williams has not got its share of time in the movie. Its like taking the James Bond theme out of the Bond films. What amazes me though is the incredible amount of music that was composed for this movie. The shear running time of the music is astounding, and all of it is either good or excellent there is no poor track. The score for Goblets is brilliant both in the movie and in the CD (actually and in the trailer too.)
Harry mon favori!
Je suis une fan incontestable de Harry Potter. Tout ce qui lui concerne me passione (ou presque..!) Les quelques secondes que j'ai pu écouté de cet album m'ont fait rêver à la sortie du film qui arrive bientôt dans nos cinémas. Bien sûr, je n'écouterais pas cet album "non-stop all day long" mais pour une musique de film, certainement lors d'un voyage en voiture. (Je l'ai fait l'année dernière avec ma cousine pour le 3e film, assez génial.) Ce que j'aime particulièrement c'est que dans la musique il y a des rebondissements, nous sentons l'émotions du film et nous savons où nous sommes rendu dans l'histoire. C'est comme si nous écoutions le film. En plus quelques bonus des Weird Sisters pour le bal de Noël.Ça rock et j'adore!
I read the other reviews before purchasing this CD, although I would have bought it anyway! This is by far my favourite of the 4 soundtracks. It is truly magical. Every song I hear makes me re-live parts of the movie. Here's hoping Patrick Doyle does the remaining 3 movies!
