And I think they made a big mistake losing John Williams for this one. I've heard the new Goblet Of Fire soundtrack and... well, let's just say Christian's gonna have a field day on this one! The first three tracks are skip-button material, but the rest of the CD isn't too bad. There's nothing original here, but if you like dark, somber pieces interspersed with occasional romantic and tragic cues it's worth a listen. But the loss of the Hedwig's Theme signature tune and the other well-known cues weighs heavily against it - can you imagine an episode of Star Wars without that familiar anthem at the beginning? Changing composers halfway through a franchise as big as HP is a bad move. Anyway, here's a quickie track overview for those interested:

1 ) Magic Works (3:59): A boring and lugubrious pop song.
2 ) This Is The Night (3:23): Another boring and lugubrious pop song.
3 ) Do The Hippogriff (3:40): Eardrum-wrecking speaker-popping crap.
4 ) Hogwarts Hymn (2:59): Nice stately anthemic, hymnlike piece with strings and woodwinds.
5 ) Another Year Ends (2:18): Sweet, melodic piece with occasional heroic overtones in the strings, meanders from cue to cue without really going anywhere.
6 ) Cedric (1:57) Simple string cue without any real definition.
7 ) Voldemort (9:36) Dark, sinister, sombre strings with occasional tympani rolls and explosive dramatic outbursts.
8 ) The Maze (4:43) Starts off with a mystical, ethereal cue which descends into sombre darkness, followed by sweeping dramatic brass cues. Another good pick.
9 ) Hogwarts March (2:44) English-sounding high-school brass band march with a cheerful, mischievous attitude.
10 ) The Black Lake (4:35) More dark, sombre strings rising to a heroic, climactic brass and string ensemble, worth listening to.
11 ) Myrtle's Move (2:25) Rogers and Hammerstein style incidental cue, which goes to a variation on Habanera from Bizet's Carmen. Then a child soloist singing a hymn unaccampanied, which is a good listen.
12 ) Potter Waltz (2:17) Viennese Strauss-inspired waltz, and not a bad effort.
13 ) Harry Potter's Love (2:55) The pick of the bunch. This is a beautiful cue, a sweet slow string piece with emotional minor modulations.
14 ) Neville's Waltz (2:09) A slower waltz than Track 12, more in the style of Lehar than Strauss.
15 ) Goblet Of Fire (3:19) Another dark string piece with occasional dramatic outbursts.
