I think it's a matter of when you grew up. I knew Hook for a decade before Williams even put penicil to paper for Harry Potter. So, living with the score for so long, and possessing so many versions of it in its complete form, and can't help but appreciate Hook more. I do think Philosopher's Stone (or Sorcerer's) is one of Williams most recent masterpieces, but Hook has been with me for years and years.
