Having taken over the reins from Harry Gregson-Williams, David Arnold has produced a magical score for this latest Narnia instalment. Arnold has written some great new themes for the franchise, however none seem as powerful as those for the previous installments. Some new orchestrations of HGW's Narnia theme are delightful, and it was nice that Arnold adapted it into his new score rather than discarding them completely. The album is strongest at both ends, with the "Into Battle" cue being a orchestral and choral romp (if not a little disjointed). The middle portion is easy enough on the ears although does sometimes sound like filler cues. Overall, a solid 4* effort, but lacked that extra spark that was present in HGW's previous scores.
