For me, there are 3 tracks that really stand out on this soundtrack. "A Lannister Always Pays His Debts" is one, a heroic orchestral version of 'The Rains of Castamere' that will definitely get you humming. Then there's "Myhsa", a rendition of the Daenerys theme for female and children's voices, undoubtedly the most soaringly beautiful thing Djawadi has ever composed. Finally, "For the Realm" is the main title theme played by Djawadi himself on an unaccompanied classical guitar.

My problem with this album, though, is that Djawadi seems to rely too much on themes from seasons 1 & 2 and hasn't created enough new material. "Dracarys" is a military setting of the Daenerys theme, with male choir and percussion - it's good, but over far too soon. "Chaos is a Ladder" begins and ends with an interesting motif reminiscent of Mansell's "Requiem for a Dream", but the rest of it we've heard before in Season 2. "I Have to Go North" is also nice, but it's essentially just a reworking of 'The King in the North' from Season 1.

Of course there is some new material, eg. in "You Know Nothing", but it's not very melodic or memorable. The one completely new theme written for season 3 was for the song 'The Bear and the Maiden Fair'. Presented on this album is the rock version heard in the Episode 3 credits. It's nice enough, but is really only worth listening to for a minute and a half. What I am really missing here is the instrumental/diegetic version of the song played at Tyrion's wedding, as well as at The Red Wedding. Now that was a lively jig and would've made me a lot happier had it been included on this album!

There are other enjoyable tracks, like "Wall of Ice" and "White Walkers", which develop the musical soundscape of the North in a sophisticated and satisfying way.

Firstly the composer of the Series Ramin Djawadi has done a really awesome job to the Game Of Thrones soundtrack. This is one of the best ones out of the series so far. Many themes have now been added into bigger songs and played in bigger ways as opposed to the first soundtrack from season 1 where you had the equivalent of 29 ideas, (but that includes parts that were reused and played in different ways, and some which may only play for 1 and a half minute!) The thing is that some people don't realise is its like Mother Of Dragons her theme has appeared on all three soundtracks just in different ways! As her force grows in the series we hear it in the music different ways, and this is what really good composers do! I do think they maybe some point to more scenic music becoming a little less in game of thrones this maybe true but its the natural progression on whats going on into the show! Look at Season 1 soundtrack we got all these lovely pieces saying the king is coming to winterfell. But from Season 3 you have progressed to a all out war and chaos everywhere. There isnt time for music and fighting (As Much) Its a time for fights and talking. And that's why you will get less music like that! But overall this season has a really awesome soundtrack and its great amazing ideas in the pieces!!!

Ramin Djawadi is a genius. The more you listen to each song the more you appreciate the detail put into every score. Amazing.

i find that the season three soundtrack is the best one. less brassy sounds, more indigenous and classical tones. there is an additional track at the end of the album - guitar solo - definitely going to be my phone ringtone!
