Frankly, the works of John Powell have scarcely been on my radar until now. How to Train your Dragon is a simply wonderful score. A heroic main theme (Test Drive is one of my favorite renditions), Celtic influence throughout, romantic sentimentality (just check out the awesome Forbidden Friendship cue), excellent use of percussion (check out the end of Coming Back Around, for example), and excellent sub-themes (check out Dragon's Den---it sounds so epic it's hard to believe this is coming from an animated feature). Groundbreaking scores like this just do not come along that often and undoubtedly this one will be emulated and likely end up in trailers for other movies. At this writing (July 14), How to Train Your Dragon is the best score of 2010. Keeping it coming John!
