Avatar ImageValeria-Johanna says: First! I'm looking forward to hearing what the new composer will make of Harry Potter.Avatar ImageGenesisGuy77 says: I wonder if the track "Hermione's Parents" has anything to do with the significant plot change that the set report mentioned about the movies...it's placed really randomly in the middle of the movie--and I'm pretty sure they aren't really mentioned past the first few chapters in Deathly Hallows. Do you think the film makers would kill them off? Avatar ImageKeaHellstorm says: the soundtracks of harry potter always give me chills... Avatar Imagestina1623 says: I love the feel of the track called "Ron's Speech". I can't wait to see what that is like on screen.Avatar ImageJ.E.T. says: The sound track bites just increase my desire for the movie ! Avatar ImageJ.E.T. says: The sound track bites just increase my desire for the movie ! Avatar ImageBlack_wind says: I like what i hear:)Avatar Imageabandonedboyjon says: @genesisguy77- anythings possible at this point, it's just so random. There is one guy who could tell us- EDWARDTLC - can you tell us please???Avatar Imagehorsepatronus64 says: @genesisguy77 i SURE hope they don't... i feel like that would take away from harry's whole situation... Avatar ImageCDR says: It sounds great!!Avatar ImageBech7Raven says: I also love Ron's Speech, but other than that I can't really say what I think of the tracks.. It's hard when there's no movie alongside them. I'll just have to wait and see - 23 days!!Avatar Imageharrypotter1991 says: All of them sound great, it really fits the overall tone of the movie. I especially like the Ministry of Magic track, Lovegood's track, and Dobby's track.Avatar Imagehermy007 says: good stuff, really liked "rons speech" deathly hallows one is very fitting as well. :D cant wait to get it.Avatar ImagexxIBelieveInNarglesxx says: they sound great,and they just make me even more excited for the movie. i really like the Lovegood one.i was a bit unsure about Desplat,but it seems he did a good job,this soundtrack will fit nicely with the previous ones. now i just can't wait for that movie to come out :)Avatar ImageMr. Brightside says: Some of those tracks sound really good! Avatar Imageparryotter687 says: what about the 'Dobby' one? Have they replaced Kreacher with Dobby in all those chapters about Regulus and staying at Grimmauld Place?? Can anyone dispel my fears.. music is awesome! The 'Harry Ginny', 'Lovegood' and 'Deathly Hallows' parts were the best!Avatar ImageLost Northern says: i love the rescuing hermione song its kind of attractiveAvatar Imagerizzijl says: This is awesome... Can't wait to listen to whole songs! Love Harry and Ginny... and Dobby! It's great when music goes with a character's personality! Avatar ImageFastbak says: sourav, "Bootleg Edward" who saw a preview said Kreacher is still in the movie but he doesn't have the change of heart he does in the book. He brings Mundungus back to Grimmauld Place and Dobby arrives with them.Avatar ImageGiant Squid says: Beautiful!Avatar ImageGiant Squid says: Beautifully amazing!Avatar Imageharrypotterfreak101 says: They sound awesome! I love the thrill in the songs! Avatar Imagemiss molly says: I love them! I think you can feel the emotion in all of them. @genesisguy77-"I think Hermion's Parents" may be a time when Hermione is telling Harry about obliviating her parents. If the tracks are in order it will come right after they return to the tent from Godric's Hollow.Avatar Imageweasleywannabe1997 says: I thought we were already told that Kreacher and Dobby are both in the movie. And also that just because the tracks are in a certain order on the soundtrack does *not* mean they are placed in the movie in the same order. I know I will be corrected if this is wrong -- remember reading it in another thread, tho.Avatar ImageHunterGoddess says: It has a different feel than the other 6, maybe it because I can't see the scene in my head. Oh well it sounds amazing!Avatar ImageNatalie says: There is not even a single hint of the hedwig's theme!!! No continuation for God's sake! What happened?Avatar Imageecbaker says: I love the 'Harry and Ginny' track.. I can't wait for sheet music to come out for that one. Avatar Imagebellatrix15101 says: Oooooh, the "Godric's Hollow Graveyard" (or whatever it was called, can't remember exactly) track gave me chills! Sounds quite good. :) @Natalia{ROAR}: Perhaps it just wasn't in any of the clips...... they were only 30 seconds each after all........ I hope I'm right!Avatar ImageGraymayne says: The musical themes on a soundtrack CD are arranged in the order that gives balance to the CD as a piece of musical entertainment. We have already been told that we see Hermione adjusting her parents' memories very early in the movie along with Ron's preparations with the ghoul in the attic, and Harry clearing out his possessions and leaving No. 4.Avatar Imagecristina.ro.de says: My favourite are no. 1 & 17!Avatar Imageabandonedboyjon says: @graymayne- not always. the soundtracks for SS, CoS, PoA and GoF were all in chronological order. and the 'obliviate' track may be the scene you described. though it is a point of disagreement among the fandom, the movies seem to think 'obliviate' is memory modifying as well as erasing (i was actually reading GoF the other day, and obliviate was indeed used for memory modification). but i digress. with everything else appearing here in chronological order, i find it hard to believe that this one track is displaced. @natalia (ROAR) - i think hedwig's theme will be there, only because alexandre desplat gave an interview while he was scoring the film and said that he was disappointed in the last few films' underuse of JW's original themes. there is still quite a bit we haven't heard!Avatar ImageNatalie says: @bellatrix15101 ~†~WBM~†~ and @abandonedboyjon I really hope you are right because other than that i really like the score and i reckon that it suits the film perfectly.... *fingers crossed*Avatar ImageSindi says: Wow the tracks sound good :D Especially these! They sound great, cant wait to hear them while watching moving pictures haha :D Obliviate Snape to Malfoy Manor Sky Battle Harry and Ginny Ron Leaves The Exodus Godric's Hollow Graveyard Hermione's Parents Lovegood The Deathly Hallows Captured and Tortured Farewell to Dobby Avatar Imagehpbruin says: Yes! I just listened to the clips one time through. I gotta say, overall the album seems to fit in with all of the other albums but it is a little odd to hear an album that's almost all strings based. I'm used to hearing more horns in the mix. I too am hoping that hints of Hedwig's Theme shows up because that's what really makes it feel "harry potterish" to me. I am definitely excited to hear the full score though. I kinda miss the brass but am excited about the lushness of the strings.Avatar Imagenellythemarrow says: Oh please no! This is everything I feared when I heard that Desplat was doing the movie. I can only hope that the film is good enough to counter it. Plenty of piano, some of it dodgy arty stuff (though not all, some was nice. But Harry and Ginny is not sounding good) and no sense of fun about it (though the Dobby track is a good exception and one of the more Harry Potter sounding ones) and the action music is predictable and clunky that we hear though hopefully they just picked unfortunate extracts. The new Ministry of Magic track isn't as good as the one Hooper came up with I think but I'll withhold final judgement until seeing when it's actually played in the film. I don't like that several of the clips seem to be just again predictable streams of chords. The Ron Leaves track starts well before descending into cring-worthy. But all the other films have had moments of that and it didn't do them too much harm (bar GoF possibly). Please, please just let this and some of the others be bad examples that are made better in the whole. The Exodus and Bathilda Bagshot sounded promising. Lovegood too, as others have said.Avatar ImageNoble Birth Descending says: Woot! That means new ringtones will be here soon, too!Avatar ImageJakeom95 says: honestly although it sounds fresh and different, if i hadnt known that this was the score to HP, i really would not have known that this was the score to HP. couldnt they have taken minor subtitles from all the HP themes we know and love?Avatar ImageJakeom95 says: honestly although it sounds fresh and different, if i hadnt known that this was the score to HP, i really would not have known that this was the score to HP. couldnt they have taken minor subtitles from all the HP themes we know and love?Avatar Imagenealiezealbie says: sounds great! i can't wait to hear it all the way through with the video, combined. good job desplat!Avatar Imageweilor123 says: I have to say that although the 30 sec snippets bode well for the soundtrack, I found little to link these tracks to past tracks that have become iconic Harry Potter such as Hedwig's Theme. At least I wasn't assauted by cymbals and such (thinking Goblet of Fire). Now it will be up to Williams to tie it all up in a grande finale.Avatar ImageangelHPL says: i love the "Harry and Ginny" track! also the "Ron's Speech" is very good too!Avatar Imagemollywobble says: Some are saying this doesn't fit in with the other soundtracks. I disagree. First of all, Hooper was just as heavy on the strings. There are also more horns and woodwinds than Hooper had if you want to compare it to the soundtracks of the first 4 films. As for Hedwig's Theme, you can here it beginning at the end of "Hermione's Parents." The biggest difference with this soundtrack is the piano pieces. I'll wait until I hear the soundtrack in correlation to the film before I pass judgment, but I think it sounds fine so far.Avatar ImageShinyPineapple says: It sounds good! But it doesn't sound like Harry Potter. It doesn't give me chills like the first one did. Let's face it, after listening to PoA, nothing is quite the same. Sure, change is good, but not this kind of change. PoA makes me emotional, the music gives me chills, and makes me want to move. This doesn't even have the main Potter theme. Desplat's amazing, and i love his work, but maybe he wasn't cut out for HP. I'm glad Williams is coming back for the last part. When his music comes out, we won't even remember the music from Part 1. Avatar Imageblackhair says: Really liked the Ron's speech,Godric Hollow Graveyard,Ron leaves,Deathly Hallows. Can't say abt Harry/Ginny i wanted that to be the best of the lot but felt a little let downAvatar Imageabandonedboyjon says: @mollywobble- thank you for pointing out "Hedwigs theme" - I didnt notice it the first couple of times! @professoralice- the JW confirmation was retracted, I believe. Still up in the air.Avatar ImageLeander21 says: this is really goodAvatar Imageblackhair says: I doesn't sound like HP at allAvatar ImageWeasleyIsMyKing3 says: Amazing. Cant wait!Avatar Imageakcorr says: I imagine "Obliviate" is when Hermione erases her parents memory of her?Avatar ImageScarlette says: Are the clips working for any of you right now? I listened to them a few hours ago but they're not working now. It starts loading and then says unavailable. :(Avatar ImagePotterParish says: Harry and Ginnys theme sounds like twilight Boo on that track......Avatar Imagehonigmuffin says: It feels like the tracks have a sort of "on the run/mortal peril" undertone to them. Very fitting!Avatar Imagecritterfur says: Just thought I'd throw my opinion in after listening to a preview of Alexandre Desplat's soundtrack for DH Part 1. From what I heard, I think this score is going to be very impressive. It's a very beautiful, softer soundtrack than I was expecting (although when I think about it, there are really very few major action sequences in the first half of the book...there's the flying chase scene at the beginning, the attack at the wedding, the fight at the end in Malfoy Manor, and that's about it...Part 2, of course, is a different animal altogether). I still hope against hope that John Williams comes back for the final film...I would be perfectly fine with someone like Desplat, but Williams would help bookend the films in a unique and wonderful way. I still hold to my conviction that John Williams' scores aren't all just sound and fury...I think he can be as subtle, succinct, and beautiful as anyone in his composing. One of the only moments in the film series that makes me tear up almost every time is that moment when Harry's looking into the Mirror of Erised for the first time, and sees his parents, and there's this haunting but beautiful tinkling melody played (on bells, I think) as Harry reaches out for his parents...sigh, gets me every time. I can remember being somewhat upset when I heard that John Williams wouldn't be returning for Goblet of Fire, and wasn't sure about Patrick Doyle's score, but I ended up loving it (especially the "Harry in Winter" theme, which also makes me cry almost every time I hear it). I wasn't a big fan of Nicholas Hooper's score...I didn't love it, but I didn't hate it either. I just felt he didn't take advantage of the complexities of all the instruments at hand...sometimes it felt like he wrote the same sheet music for all the instruments, instead of playing them off of each other with different melodies. However, some of Hooper's songs were brilliant (I loved Umbridge's theme, it was just perfect for that character), and the theme which plays during Harry's possession by Voldemort in Order of the Phoenix is just heartbreaking in its beauty. After watching the very excellent documentary on sound and music that was included on the Goblet of Fire Ultimate Edition set, I have even more respect than ever for all the Potter composers. Here's hoping these last two films are as epic in scope as I always imagined they would be. Avatar Imageatschpe says: @genesisguy77 we mustn't forget that this is a music album which does not have to follow the film. For example the Order of the Phoenix album does this. Although it looks like this album follows the plotline, I wouldn't be surprised to find some small changes to help the music flow from one track to the next when listened to on its own.Avatar ImageFleur-de- Lily says: I’m looking forward to hearing what the new composer will make of Harry Potter.Avatar ImageRosie016 says: I am so glad that they released these previews, I have been dying to hear any sliver of music from the DH Part1. YAY!Avatar Imagegonzaloc says: my first coment here!... well i think that this samples sound AWESOME, alot more "maigal" more to the 3rd film kind of music... cause i have to say that i really didnt like the socres for movies 4, 5 and 6 specially the last 2... i was very disapointed... but this, they so sound good, and if john williams does the last one! it will be epic and amazing! cant wait for the movie to come out!Avatar ImageRosie016 says: I just realized at least from those 30 second previews I didn't even hear a hint of Hedwigs theme, I really hope it is in there somewhere! To me it is an essential part of the movies.Avatar ImageWeenyOwl says: All the clips sound nice enough (although Dobby's theme being a waltz conjured up rather silly visuals for me). But on first listen none of it seems like it has the potential to become iconic, like the Williams themes. Granted, I'm not one to buy movie soundtrack albums and listen to them over and over, but none of the music post-Williams has stuck with me, and I doubt that any of the Desplat will either.Avatar Imagewootwootsugaplum says: all of the tracks are amazing, but one that really catches my attention is 'rescuing hermione'. i don't know why, but that minor chord at the very end just sticks in my memory and really makes me remember what was happening in that part of the bookAvatar ImageEeyore says: It sounds dramatic enough, but none of it really sounds like Harry Potter to me. I like some of what John Williams did, but often his soundtracks are over-powering. I really liked Nicholas Hooper's HP soundtracks the best. He made use of a lot of choral music which adds a haunting and more human connection of the music to the movie. Still, it's hard to tell what the whole thing sounds like when you only hear 30 seconds out of a track that is 1 and 1/2 to almost 4 minutes long. And it's hard to know whether we are hearing the start of a track or the middle or end. I would think that somewhere in the sample they would include something that sounds like Hedwig's theme, at least once. Well, we'll see and hear it soon.Avatar ImageGrimthresgo says: Sorry Desplat. Bland. At least 14 of those tracks sound like the same track. Um Choir much? Where's Dobby's requiem? That was the most moving death in all of HP and that's your theme to it? Aragog had a better score and that was meant as comedy. To be fair, as a score it's not bad but as an HP score, horrible. There's no life to it and what happened to the established themes? Please return to Twilight Desplat. Williams, please rescue the second film.Avatar ImageFleur-de- Lily says: It sounds great!Avatar Imagedevilskinn says: I got around to listening to them... really great!Avatar Imagekatiefelton says: I know my problem is that I keep on comparing all of them to John William's first three scores:( They were all so amazing! The clips sound pretty good, and better than the HBP score. But please get John Williams for part 2! It would be great to start and end with the first, and in my opinon, best composer!:DAvatar ImageHBPFan says: Well I liked all the track, I was a bit confused with the track entitled "Hermione's parents", but I hope it all goes well in the films.Avatar ImageNumeroUnoFan says: sounds greatAvatar Imagemoglet says: These are only short clips so you don't get to hear all the themes developed, but I love what I've heard so far, I think it sounds like it will complement the scenes, not overwhelm them. This is a very different kind of film compared to the others, for much of it the trio are in a lonely and fearful situation, the music seems tailored to fit the events of this film very well.
