5.0 out of 5 stars Darker but not depressing June 27, 2004
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is the most interesting of the Harry Potter scores so far as far as I am concerned. It would not be as significant if I was not also a fan of the first two scores as well as the books and movies, but considering that what we have here is a seven part series that is still in the making, those of us curious where this narrative is going must be interested in all the signs. The scores progressively continue elements (Hedwig's theme) and add new ones. How Wagnerian! Again we can tell precisely where in the movie the music fits. I especially like the sudden change as the magic bus waits for the old lady crossing the street. The musical themes tell the story and Williams has a wonderful way of using the music to stimulate precisely the emotion necessary to accentuate the course of the narrative. This is all very interesting since cinema strikes me as the art form of our age. It uses all of the elements feasible to accomplish the catharsis so important to community. With Prisoner the score reflects the older score elements with new directions and the intrigue builds. Since the book offers so much more depth than the movie, the music is what keeps the movie from being just a pitiful reminder of the book. The music makes up for much that is missing in the movie by communicating the right emotion at the right time. I look forward to four more scores on these themes.

5.0 out of 5 stars AT LAST! Williams peaks once again! May 31, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I love Williams, and this is a fantastic score, hinting wondrously at the original Potter score, and his own classics:
1. Lumos! (Hedwig's Theme)
Unfortunately, this is a rather disappointing rehash of the very first Harry Potter track ever heard, and I don't think it has a true place in this score. At least in The Chamber of Secrets, the conclusion to the theme was varied.
2. Aunt Marge's Waltz
This neo-Viennese waltz glides and soars and changes character as fast as someone struggling to dance properly. Humorous, dramatic, lively, a real delight...
3. The Knight Bus
This is an oustanding piece, even though I don't like it as much as most people. It cleverly introduces various upcoming new themes, including the "Something Wicked This Way Comes" (From the "Double Trouble" cue) repeated motive in the brass, and the haunting dementors' underscore. A welcome addition, Williams returns to his Cantina Band roots as he did less skitzophrenically in Catch Me If You Can.
4. Apparition on the Train
Again, a meld of Williams' earlier style a la Indiana Jones, and upcoming leitmotivic material, particularly "Double Trouble" and some of the climactic "marches" later on. Interesting underscore for John Williams fans, but perhaps meaningless to non-JW Harry Potter fans.
5. Double Trouble
The dark counterpart to the Christmas carol from Home Alone, "Carol of the Bells" with the requisite medieval instruments (recorder and tambourine etc) to suit the setting. The first major highlight of the album.
6. Buckbeak's Flight
This is "Flying" from E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial all over again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing addition to the Potter family July 6, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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 The Best Original Score of the Year! July 20, 2004
A Kid's Review
Format:Audio CD
I was completely blown away by this soundtrack. For the movie "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban", John Williams wrote some new music that will be remembered for years to come. He truly deserves another Oscar for this one.

Here are my reviews for each track.

1. Lumos (*****/*****) Nothing new but still unforgettable.

2. Aunt Marge's Waltz (*****) Playful; doesn't sound like it was made to accompany a movie scene at all.

3. The Knight Bus (*****) Jazzy piece; perfect for the KB scene

4. Apparition on the Train (****) Dark and atmospheric

5. Double Trouble (*****)Perfect welcoming song for Hogwarts students.

6. Buckbeak's Fight (**********/*****)As beautiful as the Flying theme from E.T. This song is worth the price of the whole CD. A classic

7. A Window to the Past (*****) The second most moving piece in the CD. Another classic

8. a.The Whomping Willow (*****) Timpani,timpani,timpani

b.The Snowball fight (****) Listenable but not as great as the old Christmas theme.

9.Secrets of the Castle (*****) Soft but powerful.

10.The Portrait Gallery (***) Worst song in the soundtrack.

11.Hagrid the Professor (*****)Medieval music; instrumental version of Double Trouble.

12. Monster Books and Boggarts (****) Similar to The Knight Bus theme but faster.

13. Quidditch, Third year (*****) The best action cue in the soundtrack

14. a.Lupin's Transformation (****) Listenable.

b. Chasing Scabbers (***) Forgettable

15. The Patronous Light(*****) Beautiful music; very peaceful.

16. Werewolf Scene (*****) Almost the same as Track 14.a only better
