John Williams comes back super strong after a mediocre score for A.I. Artificial Intelligence and now Harry Potter. This score should be added to John Williams’ growing list of excellent scores. “Prologue” is the theme to Harry Potter but the one that’s longer and more of an overall theme is “Hedwig’s Theme.” The theme to it is a cross between Hook and Home Alone. I should also note it has a Christmas feel to it. There’s even a Christmas song in this soundtrack called “Christmas At Hogwarts” and it sounds a little too frightening for an Xmas song. That main theme always pops up in this score, which I like. I like John Williams so much because his scores are thematic and hold that theme throughout the movie and CD. But there are other great songs that are different from the theme like “Diagon Alley and The Gringotts Vault,” “The Quidditch Match and “The Chess Game.” “The Chess Game” sounds a little bit like stuff from “The Patriot” and “Entry Into The Great Hall” sounds like pieces from The Hook. I’m sure most of the Harry Potter fans will love this CD and even if you don’t like H.P. and like John Williams’ work, it’s one of his best.
