Desplat's assignment for The Deathly Hallows undoubtedly occurred as a result of his excellent score for Twilight: New Moon, showing his skills at writing for the fantasy genre. Unfortunately, Desplat did not manage to pull anything special or unique for this penultimate film of the Harry Potter franchise. The scores for Harry Potter have suffered from a lack of consistency as different directors chose different composers from The Goblet of Fire onwards, often with little or no reference to John Williams' original themes or any subsequent themes by the other composers.

Desplat, as he did with New Moon, could have stamped his own mark, but instead many of the tracks whilst individually impressive, never seems to evolve into a well rounded listening experience on album. It is frustrating because he does have some good themes here, and some of the action writing does sound impressive. Maybe he will develop the themes further in Part 2, but this score does feel a little incomplete. It is nonetheless good, but not groundbreaking score with individual moments of flare rather than a cohesive music progression of ideas and themes. Hopefully these themes will be further developed in Pt 2.

If you are pining away waiting for the film to be out on dvd this is a great way to relive the moments from the film. Put it on and close your eyes and you are THERE. The moment it starts with 'Obliviate' I'm filled with the same excitement and expectancy I felt seeing the film.

I don't know why people are complaining I think this is fantastic, after all the tone of this film and subject matter (not having any scenes at Hogwarts) ARE altogether different from the other films and having a soundtrack with a different tone / style is apt I think.

The inlay sleeve of this cd is fantastic for collectors, some great images, its in pride of place along with the other soundtracks, just eagerly awaiting the finale now!

In general the album is good, the music has much darker feel to it, well complemeting the penultimate instalment of the Harry Potter series. Unlike the previous scores however, most of the pieces are quite forgettable, with only few exceptions. As a Harry Potter fan myself I was quite disappointed, missing some of the key pieces I came to love while listening to the previous soundtracks (most notably the Hedwig's theme). Though essential album for any Harry Potter fan, it's definately not the best one.

I recommend listening to some of the songs before buying the album to avoid any unnecessary disappointment.

I hate to say it, but I found this soundtrack so disappointing. I absolutely LOVE Alexandre Desplat, I really admire his other works, so it really surprised me when I just couldn't bring myself to like this one. None of the tracks stand out for me, apart from perhaps "Farewell to Dobby". There are two or three moments on the whole CD when you hear something really beautiful, but unfortunately it doesn't last long enough for you to remember.
Personally, out of all the HP soundtrack composers, I think Nicolas Hooper (films 5&6) did the best job, and I'm sad he hasn't done the last two films.
I'm really hoping Desplat's Part 2 will be slightly different. But for the first time ever I was disappointed when I heard he would also be doing the music for the next one, as much as I hate to say that - as normally he is one of my very favourite film composers.

This is advertised as just a double disc in a posh box, but it's way more than that! You get a film cell, picture disc, bonus tracks, a DVD, a signed music score, and a poster. All in a really nice box. Well worth it if you're a big HP fan.

I initially hated this soundtrack for the same reason I think many people hated it - a perceived lack of continuity from earlier soundtracks like those of John Williams. However, after a lot of thought, I've completely come round to the soundtrack and a strong belief that it is the most appropriate soundtrack that could have been written to the film he Alexandre Desplat was presented with by David Yates, the director. Possibly, people sometimes forget that composers are working for the director and not themselves in the soundtrack world.

This film is about how Harry loses his sense of being a child, is thrown into all the confusion and fear that comes with that and, through the actions he chooses to perform, becomes an adult. Through terrible circumstances, he is forced to concentrated on the grim present and is not allowed the luxury of nostalgia for his early years at Hogwarts. That might come after the final battle is long won. Therefore, a soundtrack which made reference to themes like 'Hedwig's Theme' would sound out of place here, even in a varied form. For me, the memories that theme represents, would simply not be present in the Harry we watch in this film.

In place of the old themes, we get some beautiful new pieces which, although less tuneful, are very strong in conveying darkness, danger and, most poignantly of all, simple sadness. Amid all the death and destruction of the last book, one of the all-pervading emotions is one of great sorrow that a whole school full of once-innocent children are being forced to fight to the death to simply be allowed to be free.

My personal favourite tracks on the CD are the trilogy, 'Hermione's Parents', 'Destroying The Locket', and 'Ron's Speech'.
