Customer Reviews

The music is beautiful, mood capturing, dramatic in places and poignant.
Atlantis
Unless you really want any of the various paper tchotchkes, there's nothing here worth the money.
James Luckard
Vinyl disc was nice and of good quality, soundtrack was good, especially with the bonus tracks.

The only issue I had with this set, is when I opened it, one of the CDs had fallen out along with the booklet, and bent the pages a bit. Other than that, I'm very much impressed!

The sheet music is different for everyone; I got "Detonators". It has a 100% REAL autograph on it by Desplat! I honestly didn't catch that part when I ordered it, which makes this totally worth the money. (Not a big fan of the fact it's on glossy paper, but if it was on REAL sheet music, the signature would bleed and smear easily.)

I thought the actual printed vinyl would have been normal size, not the mini kind -- but it's wonderful nevertheless. Harry on one side, and the burning Hogwarts on the other <3

The film cells are FANTASTIC -- I've been stuck with cells that have sucked, but these are perfectly centered and cut. I had a cell of Voldemort holding onto Harry's face, and the second is Hermione putting up the wards in the forest with Harry kneeling next to Ron behind her.

I was a bit confused at first, seeing as the Harry and Voldy scene was NO WHERE in the first part of the movie...

But it's still awesome! :)

I love the music for the Harry Potter movies. I own all of the soundtracks and enjoy them all (for the most part). I still consider Prisoner of Azkaban to have the best score. I was hoping that John Williams would be able to return to finish the music that he originated, but that was not to be the case. Anybody would be better than Nicolas Hooper, who composed the bland music for the 5th and 6th movies. When I heard that Alexandre Desplat would be taking the reigns for this film (and Part 2), I was elated. He's one of the best non-John Williams composers working today. I previously enjoyed his score for The Golden Compass, which has a very similar tone to a Harry Potter film, so I was eagerly anticipating listening to his music for this one.

The music for this film is miles better than the music for the 4th, 5th, and 6th films. My favorite tracks include Obliviate, Snape to Malfoy Manor, Sky Battle, The Locket, Bathilda Bagshot, and The Deathly Hallows. Desplat does a good job balancing the music between the fast tracks for the action sequences (i.e. Sky Battle) and the slower, more subdued tracks (i.e. Ron's Speech).

There isn't a whole lot of continuity between this soundtrack and the previous films' soundtracks. Rarely is the "quintessential" Hedwig's Theme heard. This is fine with me. This film is much different than any of the previous Potter movies, so the music should be different as well, in my opinion. Desplat does a good job establishing new themes that are heard throughout the score. There are new themes for the death eaters, for Harry, Ron, and Hermione as a group, and for the Deathly Hallows.

Overall, I am very pleased with Desplat's score and I'm looking forward to hearing what he does with Part 2.

The conclusion of the Harry Potter saga is as much of a cinematic event as it was a literary one when J.K. Rowling's eagerly-awaited seventh book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, was released in July 2007 and broke a myriad of records for book sales. The success of the Harry Potter franchise is quite astonishing: it is reportedly responsible for almost single-handedly revitalizing the children's literature market, brought fantasy fiction out of geekdom and into the mainstream, and of course made Rowling herself a gazillionaire, thanks not only to the book sales but also to the spin off merchandise, theme park rides, and of course the movies and soundtracks based on her work.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the seventh film in the series, is again directed by David Yates, and features Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint as Harry, Hermione and Ron, the three protagonists of the saga. Picking up from the immediate aftermath of Dumbledore's death and Voldemort's rise to power at the end of the sixth film, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Deathly Hallows sees Harry, Hermione and Ron leaving Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry to search for and destroy the remaining horcruxes: pieces of Voldemort's soul which were hidden inside everyday objects in an attempt to make himself immortal. With Voldemort having taken over Hogwarts and rekindled his reign of terror in the wizarding world, Harry and his friends essentially become fugitives, desperately trying to evade capture by Voldemort's agents. Eventually Harry learns of the existence of the `deathly hallows' of the title, a trio of exceptionally powerful magical objects which he believes will help swing the balance of power in his favor, and eventually defeat Voldemort once and for all.

I have been a great fan of Alexandre Desplat's film scores over the years, particularly those he composed for "Birth," "The Painted Veil," "The Golden Compass" and "Mr. Magorium's Magic Emporium" (co-written with Aaron Zigman). They are all unique to the films for which they were written, and all expressive of a man who (like his "Harry Potter" predecessor, John Williams) has the heart and soul of a symphonic composer, one whose outlet happens to be the movie theater rather than the concert hall. As someone mildly obsessed with all things HP, I was elated to hear that he had been chosen to write the score for "Deathly Hallows." Hearing the finished product, I can only say that, miraculously, Desplat has outdone himself.

There hasn't been this rich and melodic a score for a Harry Potter film since "Prisoner of Azkaban"; honestly, it's been a long time since I've heard a film score this successful, period. It is remarkable what Desplat has achieved here, how perfectly he creates mood via musical texture, whether it be a lone piano, a swell of cellos, a distant choir or a somber, solo french horn. This is a man who not only knows how to compose, but, perhaps more importantly, how to orchestrate. (For the record, he is one of several on the film.)

I particularly love how the opening track sneaks up on us, and the gorgeous, sweeping melody that follows; the whimsy of "Polyjuice Potion"; the sly, insidious evil of "The Locket"; the heartbreak and anguish of "Ron Leaves"; the palpable regret of "Godric's Hollow Graveyard"; the emotional arc of "Hermione's Parents"; the heroics of "Destroying the Locket"; the eeriness of "The Deathly Hallows;" the pathos and nobility of "Farewell to Dobby.
