Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

For its fifth cinematic installment, the Harry Potter franchise gets a new composer as England's Nicholas Hooper (a usual collaborator of new director David Yates) succeeds Patrick Doyle and John Williams. The screeching electric guitar that suddenly irrupts on the very first track, "Fireworks," lets the listener know that all is not quiet on the Hogwarts front. The kiddies are growing up, evil is spreading: which is worse?! But actually this modern sonic touch is deceiving: Hooper works within an old-school format and mostly sticks to tried-and-true effects. His score is best when it goes for tension and unease, particularly in its use of low, rumbling tones: A choir starts by humming in a menacing manner in "Dementors in the Underpass"; the sound at the beginning of "The Death of Sirius" feels as if it's being belched out from some deep, dark, scary place, creating an effective atmosphere of dread. Elsewhere, the beginning of "Possession" feels as if it belongs in a J-horror movie, and then the track becomes deceptively calm before the storm hits again. Keen listeners will recognize Williams' "Hedwig's Theme" in "Another Story," but mostly Hooper is his own man. Just like the overall series, which gets darker and darker as it goes along, this CD makes for a rather brooding listening experience--the pizzicato violins on "Umbridge Spoils a Beautiful Morning" provide one of the few jaunty touches. --Elisabeth Vincentelli

4.0 out of 5 stars The Chronological Order (of the Phoenix) February 16, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Putting the songs in order is quite a simple process, and it immediately changed my opinion of the album (for the better). I highly recommend doing so. Soundtracks SHOULD be the emotional direction of the movie, and ignoring their chronological order limits the listener's connection to the actual movie. And as for the soundtrack itself, NO ONE is John Williams, and Pat Doyle and Nick Hooper don't try to be. I love JW, but I can also appreciate a unique spin now and then. Let us just hope that he scores the final film (as it would be fitting to see how he would finish the score he so famously started).

HOPE THIS HELPS...

1. Another Story
2. Dementors in the Underpass
3. Flight of the Order of the Phoenix
4. The Ministry of Magic
5. A Journey to Hogwarts
6. Umbridge Spoils a Beautiful Morning
7. Professor Umbridge
8. The Sacking of Trelawney
9. Dumbledore's Army
10. The Room of Requirements
11. The Kiss
12. Darkness Takes Over
13. Fireworks
14. The Sirius Deception
15. The Hall of Prophecies
16. Death of Sirius
17. Possession
18. Loved Ones and Leaving

Edit: In the comments that followed my review, reviewer K. Brinkert provided an even more accurate listing of the soundtrack (a few of the middle tracks were out of chronological order). Thusly I edited my initial review to reflect his super helpful findings. Cheers K. Brinkert!

5.0 out of 5 stars I really like it! December 21, 2007
Format:Audio CD
there are several negative reviews and most of them mention that while liking The Goble of Fire CD they do not care for this one. I happen to think this CD is terrific. The Goblet of Fire CD is not as good as this in my opinion. I think the music is fresh, exciting and takes a different course than the other films. I happen to like the music from all of the films, but as for Goblet of Fire music I prefer the arrangements used in the Music From the Harry Potter Films CD rather than the actual Goblet of Fire soundtrack. As an addition to continue to collect Harry Potter music the Order of the Phoenix CD is great. I nearly didn't buy it because of some of the reviews but I am so glad that I did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Mood Contrasts August 1, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I was highly impressed by the contrast between the light hearted and the dark in this soundtrack. That is part of the special magic of the Harry Potter books, of course, but I've never felt the movies, except for the first one, really captured it until now. The soundtrack for The Order of the Phoenix is relatively short, around 45 minutes in total. The tracks are arranged more by mood than by their placement within the movie, which can be a bit confusing at first, but I enjoyed the sprightly beginning of "Fireworks." I also found "Dumbledore's Army" and "The Room of Requirement" especially appealing. The tracks relating to Dolores Umbridge are interesting, too, in that they are able to convey her cloying surface charm and inner nastiness highly effectively. This is also true of "The Ministry of Magic".

The darker tracks, especially "The Death of Sirius" and "Possession," were well able to depict the tension and horror of those moments. I also enjoyed the forboding qualities of "Another Story" and "Journey to Hogwarts."

This CD well encapsulates the best qualities of the Harry Potter books and movies, and I recommend it wholeheartedly.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Magical Music Mastery of Nicholas Hooper December 18, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I recently purchased and having been enjoying thoroughly, the soundtracks to Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix and Harry Potter and The Half-Blood Prince.

As a professional musician and closet composer, I have to say I rate Nicholas Hooper's score a 5 out of 5. His music is original and yet well versed in the language of Post-Romanticism, in which movies are the most active medium for this style of classical music to dwell. That is not to say that his style is completely Post-Romantic, just that there are Post-Romantic elements utilized in his music and much of the movie scores we enjoy in movies today.

The score is evocative, the harmony changes smooth and unpedestrian and the themes beautifully capture each moment in the movie and the personalities of each character/s depicted. Additionally I enjoyed how the music was presented on the cd - as a continuous tone poem with very little or no space between the selections.

Some of my favorite themes are:

The Room of Requirement - 5th Movie
The Ministry of Magic - 5th Movie
Dumbledore's Farewell - 6th Movie
When Ginny Kissed Harry - 6th Movie

The Room of Requirement's opening chords are an homage to those who enjoy Ligeti. Yet, they are so original I would only say that they utilize Ligeti's structure. The sonic effect is Mr. Hooper's own.

The Ministry of Magic theme captures beautifully the hustle, bustle and inspirational atmosphere one would feel upon entering those magical halls. Yes, I am not a fan of minimalism, but I enjoy Mr. Hooper's use and then abandon of that structure to achieve the desired effect.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Actual Track Order August 6, 2009
Format:Audio CD
After comparing this CD to my DVD copy of the film, this is the order that I came up with. Unfortunately not all of the film music is offered on this CD. You don't even get the ending credits or any of Luna's music. Many of the pieces are not even identical to what is found in the film (i.e. the 'Fireworks' track is what you find in the ending credits instead of when the twins set off their fireworks during the OWL examination and 'Darkness Takes Over' is presented backwards.)

1. Another Story
2. Dementors in the Underpass
3. Flight of the Order of the Phoenix
4. The Ministry of Magic
5. A Journey to Hogwarts
6. Umbridge Spoils a Beautiful Morning
7. Professor Umbridge
8. The Sacking of Trelawney
9. Dumbledore's Army
10. The Room of Requirements
11. The Kiss
12. Darkness Takes Over
13. Fireworks
14. The Sirius Deception
15. The Hall of Prophecies
16. Death of Sirius
17. Possession
18. Loved Ones and Leaving

Overall I love the music, but this CD leaves loads to be desired. They need to redo it with ALL the film music and in the correct order. Funny thing is this CD has only 18 tracks but the CD for 'Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince' contains 28 tracks. Did they learn their leason?

It is a different feel musically to most of the Potter scores. Probably because it is not done by Williams. Granted it is still massively out of order! Read more

Huh. I guess I am in the minority, but the only soudtracks I really like are the last two. I, for one, am most happy not to hear the repetitive rehashed music of John Williams.
