I'm a huge fan of both films and was afraid the musical score for Catching Fire was never going to be released as there was a few days gap between the song soundtrack and this! I just LOVE James Newton Howard's score for The Hunger Games franchise, he's definitely the man for the job! My personal favourite tracks (even though I love them all) are ''The Tour'' and ''Good morning sweetheart'' which plays during the awesome cliffhanger of the film!

All in all! a wonderful soundtrack to a wonderful film! If you're a HG fan, go for it! :D

I was not the biggest fan of the score for the first "Hunger Games" film, but fortunately I feel the "Catching Fire" album is a large improvement. I really enjoy the work of composer James Newton Howard, and his return to this sequel draws parallels to the first album while forging a new path that features more emotional and intense music. There are a number of thrilling moments where a track is dark or suspenseful, and then suddenly comes to life ("Peacekeepers" and "The Games Begin" are good examples of this). Obviously, there is a romantic aspect to the movie that also allows for some more conventional orchestral music on the album ("Just Friends" is one of my favorites).

Not only do we have an increase in quality, but we also get an increase in quantity. This album has 29 tracks totaling over 75 minutes of music; that's 10-15 minutes more than the typical movie soundtrack, and a whole half-hour longer than the first "Hunger Games" score. I'm glad to see more music being made available on the album.

FAVORITE TRACKS
[1] Katniss
[4] Just Friends

Still miss the good old days of JNH writing orchestral scores in the 90s. This score, like so many modern scores, gets bogged down in electronic rock beats. The odd strong moment though; The fog being the best, giving orchestra room to breath.

I love this score, James newton Howard is an amazing composer I have so many favourites I couldn't name them all but I do love "Arena Crumbles." I recommend this to any hunger games fan who loves instrumental music!
