Out of all the composers of classical music in the world, John Williams is by far my favourite, he can create the right tones and sounds that accompany any film, and here, he can conjour up the images of Harry Potter and tell the story with music. Although William Ross adapted and conducted the music,(something for which many have slated the album for)the score itself is excellent. The beautifully constructed piece for Fawkes the Phoenix provokes the stirring feelings of the bird itself, it has a grand and loyal sense to it, your bound to hum it as soon as you've heard it! Along with "The Chamber of Secrets", "Gilderoy Lockhart" and "Dobby the House elf", these four are the newest themes to appear in the series so far, and each has it's own distinguishing features, be it "Chamber" serious, deathly march theme or "Lockharts" pompous and rather silly tune, they all contribute to a great soundtrack. Track 14, "Meeting Tom Riddle", is eerie and full of suspense, the piece ends with a loud and creepy rendition of Voldermort's theme. The only problem with the Album itself, is the arrangment of the tracks, many are jumbled and mis-titled, but that is only a minor flaw. Overall: Excellent, Excellent, Excellent.
