5.0 out of 5 stars Soaring with the dragons March 27, 2010
Format:Audio CD
We're in a Golden Age of animated motion pictures. When I was a kid growing up in the 1980s you got one, maybe two films from Disney in a calendar year, plus the odd independent movie like Watership Down or The Secret of NIMH, or some arty foreign language thing with bad dubbing, but that was about your lot. Since the Disney renaissance began in 1989 with The Little Mermaid the strength and popularity of the animated feature has grown exponentially, to the point where every major studio has its own animation department, well over a dozen full length feature animations are released each year, and companies like Pixar break box office records with apparent ease. The competition is fierce, but the Dreamworks studio seems to have managed the right blend of hip comedy and family-friendly action, spinning off from their massively successful Shrek series with hits such as Kung Fu Panda, Madagascar, and their 20th and most recent feature, How to Train Your Dragon.

Based on a popular children's book by Cressida Cowell, the film is a tale of Vikings and dragons, set on the island of Berk, where fighting dragons is a way of life. Hiccup, the son of the Viking chief Stoick the Vast, is a brainy outsider with a smart mouth, and would rather not grow up to fight dragons; he is a terrible embarrassment to his father, who in an attempt to `toughen up' the boy, sends to the dragon-fighting school of Gobber the Belch. However, rather than becoming the fearsome warrior his father intended, Hiccup inadvertently saves the life and befriends the dragon he was supposed to kill...

5.0 out of 5 stars Lightening to the Brain May 15, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I mean, sheesh, really?

I'm a youngun (18) and I've always had a bit of a thing for instrumentals, soundtracks, what have you- this is probably the first movie of my life I walked out of thinking, I MUST HAVE THAT SOUNDTRACK.

Seriously, this is strong stuff. Emotional roller-coaster stuff. It's like coffee, actually- I've found myself PUMPED after every listening.

The opening, "This Is Berk" is a rip-roaring rollicking "overture" of sorts that makes you wanna leap out of bed, grab your horns and a bucket of water, and go fight some dragons.

All in all, it's great listening if you're draggin' a little. (Ha, draggin'... )

Other great tracks include "Forbidden Friendship" which of course makes you picture some of the most endearing scenes of the movie, while rousing you with the soul-twisting strings at the finale. "See You Tomorrow", a personal favorite, is a melodramatic little jig between heroic theatrics and unassuming Celtic reel- so cinematic and rousing I've actually used it for curtain-call at a high school play. Astrid's character is repeatedly echoed in her own set of strings, in the ever-so "Romantic Flight".

It's all so very cinematic, at points, it's almost like watching the movie again- there are moments where you can tell EXACTLY what's supposed to be going on on-screen. It's wonderful.

Do not listen to this right before bed, unless you want to stay up all night. Absolutely listen to it if you need to get something done in your life, as this music will convince you that it is Heroic and Important and Possible. You will GET THINGS DONE to this music, I promise you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Music To Listen To While Riding Dragons April 18, 2010
Format:MP3 Music
Looking back on How To Train Your Dragon, you're going to remember this amazing movie that moved you, remembering the story, the characters, the animation, but probably not the music. However, if you remember closely, the soundtrack was key to your enjoyment. It punctuated the movie. It put its stamp on classic scenes in the best way possible. John Powell has always been one of the best composers in Hollywood today, but I think this soundtrack is his crowning achievement. Having to incorporate a full range of emotions in this soundtrack, while also keeping to the spirit of the environment, it wasn't an easy task. Rest assured, this is the best soundtrack since Up. And even then, I might debate that it exceeds it.

Highlights Include:
This is Berk
Forbidden Friendship
Test Drive
Romantic Fight
Sticks & Stones

Comparing the flying music for HTTYD & Avatar for instance is no comparison. Avatar doesn't have a track like "Test Flight," which is certainly the best soundtrack piece since Up's "Married Life." There's just so much life, adventure, enchantment & magic here, it soars in every way possible, and then some. And despite the fact that the track is only a couple minutes long, it uses every second to its full potential. It also serves as the theme to the movie, so it gets played off a variety of splendid way throughout the soundtrack.

The rest of the instrumental works also work quite well and they all convey the right range of emotions, from intensity (The Kill Ring), to romantic moments (Romantic Fight), to wonder and playfulness (Forbidden Friendship), to foreboding (Ready The Ships).
