The seventh and penultimate entry into the internationally successful Harry Potter franchise is also one of the series' darkest, and composer Alexander Desplat (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, The Queen, The Painted Veil) infuses the young wizard's world with the appropriate amount of gravitas. It's been a decade since John Williams set the tone for the films, and his original theme exists only in the shadows of Harry Potter & Deathly Hallows, Pt. 1. Desplat's score is both subtle and huge, lending quiet emotional depth ("Harry & Ginny"), playful wickedness ("Death Eaters"), and tense, robust action ("The Oblivation") with masterful precision. Film series that employ this many different composers (and directors, for that matter) rarely find cohesion, and this first installment of Deathly Hallows does nothing in the way to tarnish that achievement.

Ok just to let you all know, i am not a big mucis person. But, i loved the music! When i was listening to the music, i could just picture the scenes in the film. I could really tell that Alexandre Desplat and everyone who worked on the CD worked really hard to make beautiful music... Thank you all for working so hard and making great music for the movie! I can not wait to see it now!!!!
