Comments about the soundtrack for How to Train Your Dragon (John Powell)

Love that he loved it, but...

His analysis of the themes was a bit off. I was slightly confused by his reference to the main theme which, he said, "explodes in 'New Tail', 'This Time For Sure' and 'Astrid Goes For a Spin' and is eventually reduced to a piano solo in 'Where's Hiccup?'" The piano solo he refers to is first introduced at the very beginning of "This is Berk" and does not appear in "New Tail", "This Time For Sure", or "Astrid Goes For a Spin". It does swell majestically in "Test Drive", however.
All that to say that I loved the soundtrack and I love how much he loved it, but a reviewer should be sure to not get confused when talking specifics, or it makes the review look amateurish.
