    This is great! You ALL need to check this out!!!!!

    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!!!!
