I know he uses old themes, but I'm saying he recycled old music. For example the second half of track 15 on the Sorcerer's Stone soundtrack is almost exactly the same as track 15 on the Chamber of Secrets soundtrack, and that's just one example. I love how he mixes new and old themes in sequels, though. And I understand he was extremely busy in 2002.
