The last track   Monday, November 25, 2002 (5:12 p.m.) 

As much as I enjoy the Chambers soundtrack, I do have to say the last track disappoints me quite a lot. It is lifted directly from the previous film's soundtrack, but with a new ending tacked on the the London Symphony Orchestra. Listening to it with headphones, one can even tell the exact point at which the new ending is edited in, as both the style of the orchestra and the quality of the recording is noticably different. Three questions come to mind: 1) Why did Qilliams not compose a new suite for this film, in the style of the first three Star Wars films, with the new themes represented? 2) Given the lack of a proper end title suite, why did they not record the final track entirely with the LSO, instead of lifting 99% of the music from the previous disc? and 3) If this is all they could do, why did they even include this track at all? The ending of the previous track is far more satisfying, and suffices to round off the album quite nicely without track 20 taking up the last 6 minutes or so of available space.

I'm wondering if this new ending has been written by Williams or if it has been done by Ross? By the way, I think it is ok, although I liked the old ending more.

I agree that the last song was lifted and I was very disappointed. John Williams always gives us something new with his music. Even though this was done by Ross, Williams must have super vised or something. But I can't explain the last track. Besides he uses the same ending music for Star Wars even if it is a bit different each time.

I believe that they changed the end credits for the album release, because I think I díd hear the "Phoenix"' Theme in the end credits when I went to see it in the Cinema....

"Spianoman"

Yes, on the first movie the end credits had 'Harry's Wondrous World' and 'Hedwig's Theme' (with parts extended in the album). The second movie had 'Harry's Wondrous World' with the alternate ending and 3 seconds extra somewhere in the middle, 'Fawkes the Phoenix' and 'The Chamber of Secrets'.
