Avatar Imagesunshine123 says: oh i want to now what the track listing is. oh thats still cool. more hbp news yaya oh and first?Avatar ImageBeAchL0veEr05 says: Yay! Can't wait!Avatar Imagesunshine123 says: oh yay i am hahaAvatar Imagefloridianhp says: cant wait!Avatar ImageLilleby says: Yay! looking forward to this one - but please let John Williams finnish what he started with Deathly Hallows ^.^Avatar Image-PhoenixTears- says: I can't wait! Hopefully, it's as amazing as the soundtrack of OotP. :PAvatar ImageHROAR Mudblood Proud says: Woo-hoo! I'm going to buy this one, I feel like it perfectly represents what is happening with the plotline. I've liked the music all along. If there's one thing the movies did perfectly it is the music.Avatar ImageGarden State Geek says: I can't wait to hear this music. Is John Williams returning for DH? Avatar Imageele0206 says: I'm looking forward this one!!Avatar ImageNuttyasafruitcake says: nice. :-DAvatar ImageSarabi says: Awesome! I can't wait to listen :DAvatar ImageTassana Burrfoot says: Is John Williams composing Deathly Hallows? Do we know yet?Avatar Imagetubaturtle says: I'm SO excited!! I really hope we get some music clips/track listings soon, too! HP soundtracks are awesome and I really hope John Williams comes back for DH!!Avatar ImageName Unknown says: So excited! I can't wait to be able to listen to it obsessively!Avatar Imagecheeserpleaser says: I cannot wait to listen to this soundtrack. Hopefully it continues the tradition of delivering a fabulous collection of music to astound the ears that we have always associated with this franchise.Avatar Imageizziewitch says: Will undoubtedly buy it even tho Hooper isn't my favorite composer. I hope John Williams (or Patrick Doyle) comes back for DH. I especially want his music when the elder wand fixes Harry's wand at the end to reprise the music from SS when Harry first got his wand, that was cool.Avatar ImageKennedyJames says: Omg it already sounds amazing judging by the last trailer ((if it's any indication)).3 days before my birthday!Avatar ImageAgrippa1 says: I can't wait to see the track list - I can't wait even more to hear the music!!Avatar ImageGinaC says: Ditto - I am also looking forward to the tracklist and hearing this music! I'm a sucker for soundtracks. And I don't think we've had any announcement as to who will be scoring Deathly Hallows. Apparently there are rumors that Williams said he was confident he would be back, but nothing official. My guess is that Yates would keep Hooper if it's up to him, but it's hard to refuse Williams if he wants the job. I would think the producers could override Yates, but I'm not sure how that works. I do hope Williams comes back, though, and brings it full circle! :-) He would do such justice to the walk into the forest and the Epilogue.... I get chills thinking about it.Avatar Imageomgitslouise says: I hope John Williams comes back for Deathly Hallows, I love his score for the first film :]Avatar Imagesunlitdays says: the sound tracks are always so good! and even in the traliers i could hear some and it was awesomd :)Avatar ImageRaWr...WeReWoLf says: i can't wait!!Avatar Imagelilhpchick20 says: Now I am even more excited. I cannot wait to hear this soundtrack Although I do have to say that I am looking more forward to the Deathly Hallows soundtrack just because it is including the origanal composer.Avatar Imageabandonedboyjon says: the music in the trailers has been good, hope it's in the movie. we only have to wait 2 months for the soundtrack!Avatar ImageKimberlyZ says: yay! just what i needed for my collection!Avatar Imageja_man77 says: Thats my birthday! I should get it for my birthday as a present to myself. I hope it is as good as the soundtracks are always. Avatar ImageHPNAIV says: I also hope that John Williams will be composing the soundtrack for DH! *crosses fingers And maybe I'll buy this soundtrack since it is coming out on the day paperback DH comes out! :DAvatar Imagehermyone08 says: Hooray! I'm so excited for this soundtrack. I can't wait.Avatar Imagehpfan_8890 says: I love listening to the soundtracks, they always have a way of not only helping the plot, but are great to listen to whenever! I loved the HBP game soundtrack so I can't wait for more music!!!Avatar Imagethecoze88 says: Well, from the looks of the last trailer, the music should be amazing!! On a completely unrelated topic, Leaky...what's with the new green look? Did Draco Malfoy take over? No offense, but the brown look was so much better. Avatar ImagePewterWolf says: I agree with thecoze88 - if the trailer's music is anything to go back, then am hopeful. But, saying that, I only own 2 albums and haven't listen to either of them in over a year, this soundtrack better be GOOD!!!Avatar Imagekenmarekestrels93 says: I've never really paid much attention to the soundtracks...extremely excited for the movie though! ☺ .Avatar Imagetaekwondochik44 says: Yay! So exciting! A week before the movie AND the paperback release of DH! I can't wait! Avatar ImageSmitch says: Really cool that you can pre order it. Nice feature. I can't wait to hear it! :) Avatar Imagemaimiaa says: way jokes! can't wait to listen to it!! :DAvatar Imageccking says: yaaay ! i'm a music nerd, exciteeed!! Avatar ImageAvangelis says: hopefully it will be better then the last oneAvatar Imagesunshiined says: I'm so excited!!! I'll probably buy it and then read the books while listening to it. :)Avatar Imagedragonsmaidan says: OMG Super excited for Soundtrack!Avatar Imagekiwimci says: Yay, I love Hooper's music and always glad to add it to the Harry Potter playlist. And wow! Americans have had to wait this long for the paperback?! What's up with that?Avatar Imageblind_pilot says: Exciting! I'll try to download it on iTunes. :)Avatar Imagerehma love says: ahh i really want to know the track listing! oh well, i'm getting it anyways<3 the cover looks awesome.Avatar Imagecghambright says: YAY! I can't wait to buy it. I love Nicholas Hooper!! THe OOTP soundtrack is the only one that I've bought, but I love all the others too. But I bet this one if going to be EXCELLENT because he's had so much time to work on it. Avatar ImageNeviluna says: OMGOMGOMGOMG!!!! I HAVE to buy this! ((((((((((((((((((((((((((((: Why is everything HBP coming out AFTER my birthday!? D:Avatar ImageWeasleyRavenclaw says: soooooooo excited!!Avatar ImageCatherine says: awesome! i cant wait! i luved the music in the newest trailor!Avatar Imageseachellie4 says: awesome!

I just think that would make most scense.Avatar ImageWitByndMsr says: Ahh so excited!! Love the music in these movies, but I wish they would bring John Williams back. Avatar Imageblackhair says: i hope so too hope they bring him back for DHAvatar ImageYodatheHobbit says: Guys, the trailers AREN'T anything to go by as far as the music is concerned. I'm 90% sure the music from the trailers isn't composed by Nicholas Hooper or anyone else working on the music for Half Blood Prince. I do however remember hearing that John Williams' "Double Trouble" from Azkaban is back in this film from a few of the test screening reports last year. Hopefully that wasn't just temp music, and is newly composed for HBP.Avatar ImagePatrickster says: I was greatly disappointed with Hooper's "Phoenix" soundtrack, so much so that I never even purchased it. This is not good news to me at all. I certainly hope they bring back John Williams or Patrick Doyle to do the "Deathly Hallows" score.Avatar Imageiconshero says: Sweet!Avatar Imageangelac123 says: Cool! I can't wait! :DAvatar ImageThe Shadow Lord says: Totally Awesome I :) I shall attempt to purchase itAvatar ImageMcGiggles92 says: cool, but I only have the soundtrack to the first movie.Avatar Imagegoodenough says: Yey!

So excited!!!Avatar ImageAbiDumbledore says: Im excited to hear this! =) July is gonna rock!Avatar ImageLuce_depp says: Next to the pirates of the caribbean music...this is my favourite theme song!Avatar Imagered_7849 says: That's great. Hp soundtracks are something worth listening especially the title track for the sixth. It's time to get ready, guys !!!!Avatar ImageOwling says: Can't wait to hear the music!Avatar Imagespicefan1978 says: I can't wait!Avatar Imagedcrazmo says: There isn't some mistake, and they actually mean May 7, is there? Please? Maybe? No? Rats...Avatar ImageRita_Dumbledore94 says: OMG... Can't wait!!! *-*Avatar ImageAvangelis says: ya yayAvatar ImageVideoKID says: Yay :)Avatar ImageProfessor Alan Rickman says: Hooper's a lame composer, but I hope he has used the material that John Williams wrote for this film. (Yes John Williams has written music for HBP to help hooper because he couldnt come up with any good ideas)Avatar Imagelevi-OH-sa not levio-SA says: cool beans, can't wait!Avatar Imageblackhair says: eagerly waiting to come up in stores and onlineAvatar Imagemaera-kyrie says: The music from the trailers sounds AMAZING, so far, so I'm sure the soundtrack will be great!Avatar ImageWendelin the Weird says: Yay! Can't wait to listen to this soundtrack. Avatar Imageblackhair says: and thats because of John WilliamsAvatar Imageavrenim says: can't wait to hear it!Avatar Imagekylejhood says: I think Nicholas Hooper did a good job on Order of the Phoenix, but I am really hoping that John Williams will finish up the series. He's a brilliant composer and he's who composed the first 3 and did great. He should do the last one.Avatar ImageSlytherin Princess101 says: I really want to listen to the soundtrack!!! From what I know John Williams is composing Deathly Hallows!!Avatar Imagesgarime1 says: This is really cool. I can't wait for the movie, and music to the Harry Potter films is always amazing!Avatar Imagekbicprez says: I bought the GOF soundtrack awhile back. I like it very much! I do like the green background on Leaky. Just too bad it's for Slytherin...LOL!Avatar Imagemaria_djtc says: I cannot wait to get my paperback edition of Deathly Hallows! And hopefully the soundtrack will be amazing like all the others in the past.Avatar ImageDolemite says: I have all the soundtracks and use them as background music all the time. No wonder I'm a PotterHead.Avatar ImageJohn-Robert says: cool, but if john williams doesn't come back for seven, im going to be ranting.Avatar ImageHeavenly_Horcrux says: I can't wait for the soundtrack to come out!Avatar ImageYodatheHobbit says: Hooper is a wonderful composer.Avatar Imageascendancy33 says: Awesome newsAvatar Imageweasleywannabe1997 says: Hooper? Meh. (shrugs)... I will wait and see how it is. Was never very fond of the OOP soundtrack.... would love to see John Williams for DH -- if not, definitely Patrick Doyle. GOF is my favorite HP soundtrack!!!Avatar Imagekraamerxmich says: YAY! ill be waiting for it, the first day it comes out!Avatar ImageVioletPhoenix says: Can't wait! I'm a soundtrack LOVER!Avatar Imagemarymackie says: I've got all of the soundtracks. They are all good, But ONE and TWO are just about worn out !! When I get #6, I might have to replace them because they get played all the time!!Avatar Imagejeannemcl says: I think the Harry Potter music is some of the most haunting music around. It can be both exciting and soothing at the same time.Avatar ImageAvangelis says: i can't wait to pop this in and cuddle with a house elf NOT heee but it sounds like it will be greatAvatar Imagepotterkid says: Yay!!! I love the soundtracks. I can't wait!!! Avatar ImageOcaorange12 says: I can't wait for this!Avatar ImageAnalise says: On a related note, as someone else pointed out, most music composed for trailers IS NOT written for the movie itself or by the film composer. There are composers whose sole job is to write for trailers. What you heard in the trailer doesn't reflect what Hooper's written. Can't say I was too impressed with Hooper's style in OotP. I could go on and on why, but then I'd bore everyone with stupid music jargon that no one cares about. :P Anyway, I hope this one's better than the last and that John Williams comes back for DH. He's the man! Avatar ImageiLoveDolores says: can't wait. i loved the soundtrack for OotP, its on my ipod =DAvatar ImageBoyWithALightningScar says: Cool, but I will listen to it only after I've seen the film. Otherwise I'll be distracted, trying to recognize which track is which.Avatar ImageR-for-H says: I love all the sound tracks.. Have them all on CD!Avatar ImageAngelasCrochetingCorner says: I can't wait!Avatar ImageLivelaughlovepotter says: The soundtrack will be just as amazing as the movie. They've had long enough!
