I decided to buy Prisoner Of Azkaban soundtrack over Chamber Of Secrets and Philosopher's Stone, because I was immediately impressed by the variety of themes and particularly the mediaeval quality to it.
I have to say, that since purchasing it from Amazon, I have just not stopped playing it. It is so enjoyable and relaxing to listen to.
The first tune returns to Hedwig's Theme which is the opening tune for the film, it promises much excitement and does not disappoint. The great thing about this soundtrack is that it is cleverly written to suit the scene of the film it is referring to. You can visualise the theme in your mind.
The tracks I particularly adore are:
Hedwig's Theme Lumos.
Aunt Marge's Waltz.
The Knight Bus.
Apparition On The Train.
Double Trouble.
Buckbeat's Flight.
A Window To The Past.
Secrets Of The Castle.
Mischief Managed.
DOUBLE TROUBLE is a fantastic mediaeval number with choir, which incorporates harpsichord, organ and probably a few obsolete instruments to create an authentic and melodic piece. The words are taken from Shakespeare's Macbeth. This is a great piece for your selection of Halloween music.
AUNT MARGE'S WALTZ A great piece of music, full of grandeur and humour, which perfectly fits with the scene of Aunt Marge floating into the sky in the film. There are parts of this tune that are reminiscent of Saint-Saens.
THE KNIGHT BUS Is a clever mix of classical instruments and modern jazz to create a busy and confused piece. There is plenty of use of brass, creating the sound of a car horn, and screeching of tires which fits with the Knight Bus as it takes its mad journey through the streets of London.

John Williams has outdone himself this time. Of all the three Harry Potter movie soundtracks, I would say that the 'Prisoner of Azkaban' soundtrack is the best of the lot (while the worst is 'Chamber of Secrets'). With new cues and a new recurring theme, this album contains some of the best pieces of music in the Harry Potter trilogy. Finally, a Harry Potter soundtrack worthy of being named a John Williams masterpiece.
Also, the usage of medieval musical instruments such as the harpsichord and flute in some tracks and the usage of jazz beats in a couple of tracks have managed to tie in old and new musical elements. This is perfect for a Harry Potter soundtrack because in a way, the Harry Potter world is a mixture of elements from the medieval and the modern world.
You just can't tell how happy I was when I heard classical and baroque elements in the soundtrack. Other than that, this soundtrack has Williams' signature musical cues inserted everywhere.
Anyways, on to the detailed review!
Aunt Marge's Waltz :
Very nicely composed piece of music. The rhythm is typical of a classical waltz and it is refreshing to hear classical music cues in a soundtrack made for a film set in the 21st century.
The Knight Bus :
Whee! Jazz!
Double Trouble :
The first piece of vocal track makes its appearance on a Harry Potter soundtrack. Very beautiful sung by a boys' choir and it captures the spirit of the Harry Potter books. The main recurring theme for this movie is also introduced in this track.
Buckbeak's Flight :
When I first listened to this track, it reminded me of music fit for a sweeping epic. Very majestic. Buckbeak's Theme is a lot well-composed than Fawkes' Theme in the previous movie.

I love this soundtrack.From listening to it I really got a feel for how the movie will be.The music is far better than the last two soundtracks to the other Harry Potter films and you can tell that it is more mature as well.My favourite track is 'A Window To The Past', it is beautiful and heart wrenching,it made me cry, it's a very moving piece.I also like 'Buckbeaks Flight' because it actually feels as if you are souring on the back of the hippogriff,I think it will work very well in the film.Another track I like is 'The Patronus Light', which is another moving piece and I'm also very fond of 'Double Trouble', which is very catchy.'The Knight Bus' was a wonderful surprise to listen to because it is very jazzy and will go with the scene in the film very well because it will be fast moving.
You have to buy this soundtrack because it is brilliant.It is very different to the last two Potter soundtracks and from listening to it, makes me want to see the film so much now I just can't wait.

The score to Prisoner of Azkaban is totally different than its predecessors. It begins with a little reminder of Harry Potter with a reworking of 'Hedwig's Theme' in 'Lumos!', but any fears that this is going to be another Chamber of Secrets (ie almost nothing new, nothing inspiring, just Philospher's Stone in all but name, but still a good score nonetheless) are immediately dispelled with the next two inventive and inspiring pieces. Aunt Marge's Waltz is a delightful, humourous Rossini-esqe joy to listen too (my favourite track), and 'The Knight Bus' is a wacky jazz number that can't fail to remind me of the purple triple-decker bus careering through the streets of London.
The whole score is clearly John Williams enjoying himself when, like the new director Alfonso Cuaron, he is given the freedom to play around in Harry's world, and he does it with aplomb, mixing jazz with medieval, suspense with humour, poignacy with action. Something Wicked This Way Comes is a wickedly clever turn on lyrics taken from Shakespeare's Macbeth and putting them to music that sounds like a distant relation to Hedwig's Theme, and yet different enough to make it stand out. This is followed with a short, soaring piece, 'Buckbeak's Flight' and then a slow, reverent track, 'A Window to the Past' that easily represents the loss Harry feels at never knowing his parents. The score continues to twist and turn in various directions and every track brings something new and enjoyable, but the leit-motif of Something Wicked This Way Comes is smartly and subtly used as a guiding line throughout, unlike the obvious repetitiveness present in prior Harry Potter scores.
With Prisoner of Azkaban John Williams has produced a wonderful score, which like the film itself, is easily the best of the series so far.
