I've bought this soundtrack, and while it wasn't crushingly disappointing, it wasn't as good as I expected. Its use in the film is brilliant, but I can't say as much when it's played by itself. I really wish the composer had extended the new themes from Prisoner of Azkaban, which were absolutely wonderful (I regret that when the 3rd movie, which I now love, came out, I immediately disliked it and therefore did not buy the soundtrack while it was still in stores). Overall, this score isn't so bad. I'd give it a B. I think one of its weaknesses is that it's somewhat repetitive. Thankfully, Do the Hippogriff, This is the Night, and Magic Works, all three of which are pretty awful when not heard with the movie, are placed at the very end of the soundtrack. I always skip them. While this soundtrack isn't near as good as the first three, many of the tracks are pretty stunning, particularly The Story Continues, Another Year Ends, Foreign Visitors Arrive, Harry in Winter, and Hogwarts' Hymn. And I'm sure there are others I'm leaving out. I rather wish they would stick with one set of essential movie-making people though. Really, by the time the fifth movie is out, they'll have gone through 4 different directors and 2 (or 3?) different composers.
