3.0 out of 5 stars May be a slight disappointment to Narnia fans, 15 Aug 2008
This review is from: The Chronicles Of Narnia: Prince Caspian Original Soundtrack (Audio CD)
Sadly, this soundtrack didn't meet my expectations after the amazing 'The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe' soundtrack. This isn't to say it's not a nice addition to anyone's soundtrack collection, though. Harry Gregson-Williams must be commended for the wonderful music that plays during the first track, 'Prince Caspian Flees' (it makes you want to close your eyes and soak up nothing but the music you can hear). The trouble is that, although much of the score is heavily borrowed from the first Narnia film's score, the music has somehow become blander. It's nice to come across familiar tunes from the first film (eg. music from 'The Battle' and 'The Stone Table') but, in the end, they're nothing new and when the old tunes are altered slightly they remain annoyingly dull. Several of the tracks pass me by without leaving me with a distinct impression and when I can't recall how a particular track goes, then it means it didn't interest me the times I listened to it.
There are four additional songs on the album. The first one, 'The Call' by Regina Spektor, is a little too fluffy for my tastes although I won't skip it when it comes up on a music shuffle. 'This Is Home' by Switchfoot is a very enjoyable song to listen to. I dislike the other two songs, 'A Dance 'Round The Memory Tree' and 'Lucy'. They are both very forgettable.

If you're interested in Harry Gregson-William's music in general, I suggest avoiding this album and instead listening to ones such as Kingdom Of Heaven, which demonstrate his talent as a composer far better.
