This soundtrack by world-famous composer John Williams is so good, I can't express it in words. Hedwig's Theme, Harry's Wondrous World, The Quidditch Match . . . this, folks, is what TRUE magic is all about!!!

I must admit I have not read a Harry Potter book to this date. I have seen both movies and enjoyed both of them a ton. The movies however would not be nearly as good if not for the score written by John Williams.
"Hedwigs Theme" is a great song and will be the song you will remember most from the movie. It's a beautiful song. I love how it starts off on the bells. It adds a feeling of unknown awe when it's played. It's also great when it's not played on the bells and is done by the orchestra. It's probaly Williams best song of this new century. Fans of his will be well pleased and I think this one alone makes it worth getting the soundtrack.
I liked "Hogwart Theme." The christmas song was also good. It's just a good mix and blend of music. Williams score accents the movie so well. It brings the world of Harry Potter to life so well.
This soundtrack is a must own. It's some of Williams best work he's ever done. It's right up there with Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Superman, and Jurrasic Park. His fans will love this album. Fans of Harry Potter will really like it. People that like classical music will also enjoy this one a lot.

"Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" is a story all about magic, so it's obvious that the film needed a truly magical underore, and not everyone can deliver a magical score. Chris Columbus had worked with John Williams before on the first two "Home Alone" movies. and I think he made the right choice when asking him to score the first "Harry Potter" title.
This score is...amazing? Wonderful? Awe-inspiring? Take your pick of words, but none of them fit this stunning piece of work performed beautifully by the London Symphoney Orchastra. Magical is the only word for it.
It succeeds in many areas where the movie it was created for fails. Williams has created a score that is perfectly tuned to the changing moods of the book and movie. At times warm and inviting, while later eerie, dark, and forbidding; at times happy, at other times sad, and sometimes all out thrilling. The strong diversity of this score is most perfectly reflected in the beautiful meadly "Harry's Wonderous World." track two (and my favorite track) on the CD.
Furthermore, the strong use of motifs enhances the score and film, and the eerie Harry Potter theme is destined to earn its place among John Williams' most famous works, right up there next to the Star Wars Main Title Theme and the Flying Theme from E.T. This score is clearly the best of its year, and the MPAA is [bad] not to hae awarded it the Oscar for Best Score. It is in my mind. My only complaint about this release is that it is an abridgement, and hope that someday the complete score will be issued.
Of John William's score for "The Phantom Menace," George Lucas said "Every fan of Star Wars -- and of great music -- is in his [John Williams] debt." Changing "Star Wars" in the quote to Harry Potter, the same applies here.

Format: Audio CD
Perhaps it's because I heard the soundtrack before I read the book or saw the movie, but I simply cannot imagine any other music being used for the Harry Potter world. While many film scores are well-composed and seem to complement their films well, this score seems to grow naturally out of the story itself, by way of the great John Williams.
One thing to keep in mind about the music, though, however great it is, is that it was composed to complement the movie and not necessarily as an independent listening experience. That said, the soundtrack does, in fact, make a great listening experience, though a few of the tracks do seem to go on for a while without a lot of direction. Williams seems to be big on providing a constant musical wallpaper--or perhaps Columbus requested this, and that means there is simply a LOT of music that went with this film, and much of it is simply atmospheric.
That said, the entire sountrack is worth buying for the trailer music, opening theme, and end titles alone. These pieces bring the main themes of the entire album together (including the excellent Hedwig theme) and integrate them into coherant stand-alone pieces. Also, even the "atmospheric" tracks provide an excellent ambience for exercising or jogging or just working around the house.

While my daughter thought the music was "spooky" I have to say that this is my favorite music to listen to while I am working. It sets a mood of relaxation for me that nothing else (even Enya!) does. I am sure it has a lot to do with the atmosphere of Hogwarts. I enjoy the books, the movies and the music. John Williams is one of my favorites but this is my favorite work of his. I have HPCS as well but this one sets the mood best.
