  2. But see, even when Jerry wrote crap on those rare occasions...it was fresh and creative crap. Crap you hadn't heard before, and that at least made it interesting to listen to...for the mere fun of discovery.

    Overall I think he has the best record in terms of quality in relation to quantity. For all that he scored, a good majority of was above average, and each effort had at least had one or two outstanding pieces.

  3. I've been lurking around here for a couple of years now...

    Time to post. :P

    What can be said? Except Doyle's effort, while decent, leaves me wishing Johnny had stayed with the Potter series.

    Perhaps it was just how I was while listening to the music, but the score just sounded...unfocused. From the beginning to the end, there's no sense of satisfaction, you don't feel like you've gone anywhere. And to be honest, there's not much that's memorable. When I went to listen, I went in with replaying all the other HP themes like Hedwig's, Fawkes, Chamber of Secrets, etc. in my head. When I came out, I was still replaying all those themes...and nothing new....

    The opening tracks are most disappointing, and the MV elements in tracks like The Quidditch World Cup...are not fun.

    The dark music is dark and omnious. The bombastic music...sounds...well like...bombs exploding and going no where. The lack of continuity with the past scores is another big minus, even though I'm trying my best to let it go, considering the circumstances.

    Foreign Visitors Arrive, Golden Egg, Neville's Waltz, Harry Potter's Love, and Potter Waltz, are the best tracks, but even they don't come near the best that Williams brought to HP.

    Voldemort's track is most disappointing...it sounds good while you're listening to it...but there is no dark lord theme, and once it's done you'll have a hard time recalling what you just listened to, and it's not helped by the fact that there isn't any build up throughout the score to one of the biggest turning points of the movie and series...the return of the dark lord. :)

    From what I've heard in the two hours I spent listening, some tracks a couple of times, the music really ends up as sounding like what the Quidditch World Cup track was...trailer music. It's an hour and 15 minute collection of trailer music.


    Based on first and half impressions...on low quality AOL streams. ;)

    To be completely honest...I want them to track some Williams pieces from the past movies in the film...something to just connect back to the other movies.
