I know. It is perhaps even as equally worthy as one of the Harry Potter scores, and it certainly never bores you. The reviewer did make a good point, which I hadn't personally realized, that there is no identifiable central theme, which would have been useful considering the long duration of the series (thirteen books in all). I hope Thomas Newman gets his much-deserved Oscar soon. The scores for kid's movies seems to be getting progressively better as time goes on. If only I had money to buy them...
