5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliance July 12 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is by far one of the best scores I have ever heard. Lumos! (Hedwig's Theme) is an older favorite, but a litte bit of an extra spin on it, making it even more enjoyable. "Aunt Marge's Waltz" is enough to make me laugh out loud, which says a lot considering it's only an orchestralsuite. "The Knight Bus" is eccentric and wild, but extremely fun. "Double Trouble" is most likely the most recognizable track, and has more of a medieval touch to it, but is a fantastic track. "Buckbeak's Flight" is tied for my favorite. It's sort of like the Fawkes number from the second movie to the third one, but less singable. It's simply beautiful. "A Window to the Past" is equally beautiful, and these two tracks alone were enough to make me want this CD. "The Whomping Willow and the Snowball Fight" is also very fun, and "The Portrait Gallery" and "Hagrid the Proffessor" are cute shorter pieces. The "Finale" and "Mischief Managed" are also spectacular pieces.
Overall, this is an amazing soundtrack and highly reccommended to everyone!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Multi-Themed Soundtrack July 12 2004
Format:Audio CD
I love listening to soundtracks-they're my favorite form of music, especially when they are from excellent movies like Harry Potter. The best soundtracks, IMHO, invoke the corresponding bits and scenes of the movie. So it is, at times, a bit irritating when tracks are out of order with the events of the movie, such as in this soundtrack. (ie. the Whomping Willow music occurs much later than track 8) John William's third installment in the HP movie series is dynamic and masterful-displaying the Hogwarts and story we know and love, but with more thematic variations and different melodies than the scores of the first two movies. I was disappointed that Lupin's phonograph music wasn't on the soundtrack, but I guess I shouldn't have expected it to be. Here are descriptions of some of my favorite tracks:
Lumos! (Hedwig's Theme) is the theme we all know-a bit of nostalgia for the beginning of the soundtrack. The last track, Mischief Managed!, also starts with a recurring theme, and is a compilation of most of the other tracks, including Double Trouble, A Window to the Past, Buckbeak's Flight, and ends with Aunt Marge's Waltz.
Aunt Marge's Waltz is a little strange, but humorous. The Knight Bus is the craziest and most surprising track is you haven't listened to it before-it sounds like something straight out of a musical about a carnival. It is, though, very catchy and entertaining- one of my favorite tracks. Double Trouble, the most widely known theme, provides a solid base for theme of the other tracks, but it would've been nice if they included the lyrics with the pull out (but dedicated fans can find them rearranged in Act 4 of Macbeth).
I absolutely love Buckbeak's Flight (6) and A Window to the Past (7).

5.0 out of 5 stars Great even as a standalone July 9 2004
Format:Audio CD
While John Williams' sountrack complements the movie perfectly, most of the tracks would fit in at a Boston Symphony concert. "Aunt Marge's Waltz" is probably the best example of this; the oboe solos, etc, make this track sound like a modern version of a Mozart waltz.
"Buckbeak's Flight" is easily the best track on the album; it conjures up the scene from the movie perfectly. I can't help but smile when I hear it.
What I don't understand is why people have such an affinity to lyrics. "Double Trouble" is the most downloaded track on iTunes, "Into the West" (awful song) was the most popular for LOTR, and same with every other soundtrack. While I have nothing against "Double Trouble" (it is is a great adaptation of those few lines from Macbeth), it somehow doesn't fit with the rest of the album. It works great in the film, but it doesn't fit with the other tracks. Same with "Knight Bus."
Sorry this turned out to be a rant more than a review; just had to say that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing addition to the Potter family July 6 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is probably the best of the 3 soundtracks to the Harry Potter films. Being a fan of the books, the movie throughly disappointed me... but the music never ceases to amaze. I love every track especially #5 (Double Trouble) and #6 (Buckbeak's Flight). Track #5 uses a great verse from Shakespeare's "Macbeth" and gives the film an air of mystery and dark magic... and this installment is one of the darkest in the series (well book 5 is darker, but we're not talking about book 5). Track #6 just lifts my heart and gives me chills and goose bumps.... the same feeling hit me both times I saw the movie. The piece just captures the raw emotion, joy, and freedom of Harry at that moment.
I enjoy the use of what seems to be tin flutes and the almost medieval quality of some of the pieces. It's just a wonderful score, probably one of William's best works.
I definately recommend anyone to purchase this... even if you don't like Harry Potter, you will love the enchanting themes found in this score.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Spectacular! July 3 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This has got to be the best Harry Potter soundtrack ever! As a few other reviewers have said, Prisoner of Azkaban is one of the darkest of the books in the Harry Potter series and a lot of the songs really convey that well.
My favorite track is #6 Buckbeak's Flight. To me, it has this powerful sound to it and listening to it makes me feel peaceful. This song is played in the movie when Harry is flying on the Hippogriff Buckbeak for the first time. The entire scene is powerful (and made more so by the song) and I think it was a way for Harry to escape his troubles, if only for a few moments. In PoA, that is definitely something Harry needs.
I would usually give each track a rating and an explanation of why I gave it that certain rating, but it is currently three in the morning and I'm sleepy! Lol. Otherwise, I give each track the same rating, a 10/10, with the exception of track 6, which deserves an even higher rating! I can 99.9% guarantee that you will not regret purchasing this soundtrack!
