I really enjoyed the first score by JHN. Hopefully this one is just as good.

My biggest hope for this score is that JNH properly fleshes out his awesome main theme, which didn't get anywhere near the attention in his first score that it should have gotten.

If that does happen? The theme will easily have the potential to be as well remembered as Hedwig's Theme.


0:53-1:27

The question is if this one will be also available in two versions or just this one...

Really excited for this one. The first one was, IMO, one of the best scores of Howard's career and easily the best Potter score since AZKABAN.

ETA: To the OP, you may want to correct the typo in the header (it's "Grindelwald") just so this thread can be found easier later.

Agreed!

Really enjoyed the music from the latest trailer... Hoping it's from the movie and gets expanded...

Solid work. Moderate improvements over the original all around.

Wish we had orchestral theme suites, like those for the first film, here too.

Annoyed, as usual, by the unresolved conclusion to the end credits cue which is otherwise nice.

Tracks 19 and especially 20 with it's bell-like brass are back-to-back knockouts. I think the recording is the best, most organic sound his scores have had in years!

I was pretty indifferent to the first score, but this really knocked it out of the park! Like previously said, tracks 19 and 20 are a wonder to hear! I got goosebumps listening to "Traveling to Hogwarts"

Hmmm, so far I'm pretty indifferent to this one, but I immediately got into the first score. I'll see if this one warms up on me. Not a bad effort, just not grabbing me yet.

Edit: The first score was fun and whimsical. This one seems dark and foreboding. Harder to get into without seeing the film I think.

i'd throw number 22 on there as well. i assume this is the end credits. am kind of blown away by this one. a very solid effort, no question.

Yeah same here. It's one of those things where I'd say I'd enjoy owning it but don't have any real desire to specifically do so.

The first score despite being enjoyable didn't leave a mark in(on) my (fore)head.
This one Has definitely this Epic and magical "Je ne sais quoi" that really sticks.
There's something of "HOOK" in the way the themes make the kid in me vibrate. And It's rich.

I listened to tracks 19 and 20, both highlights you mentioned, and neither one of them is any good at all! They both sound like the background to a theme, only there's no theme on top of them (as per usual these days). The first one is like the "Statues" cue from Desplat's Potter, only somehow less thematic than that. The piano versions of the themes, however, are great, and I like those a lot. I'll have to absorb those more so I can maybe find these themes in the score proper.

Also, the recording sounds like shit. So much so that, when I switched to The Grinch after, Elfman's score actually sounded really fresh and vibrant.

My first time listening to those two cues were rather positive. They sounded epic! Then when I played them a few more times something bugged me and I realized they sounded like "Two Steps From Hell" trailer music. So while they are highlights of the score, their rather generic compositions.

Yes, same as the "Statues" cue - just generic. I thought Elfman's Grinch was bad, too, but playing it after this makes Grinch sound like a lost classic from 1995 or something.

Well no surprise this score has grown on me quite a bit. Especially after cutting the playlist down to about an hour.
