Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince [Original Motion Picture Soundtrack] 4.9 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 30 reviews.

Although I loved William's and Doyle's work, they were often much too epic for a series that is only "semi-epic". In terms of complimenting or augmenting what happens on screen, this is the best since the first movie, which was all about the discovery and wonder of magic. The most personal movie, HP6, has the most personal music. Great job.

This is one of the best scores i have heard in recent years and was worth every cent. I thoroughly enjoyed the intense emotion and soaring notes in every piece.

I have been a part of the harry Potter fandom for over a decade. Not since the third installment, the Prisoner of Azkaban, have I ever a greater Score. Listening to the clips alone caused me to let out a tiny squeal. Every song I heard matched perfectly to the scene I have been playing in my head. My favorite Song was track 2, In Noctem. This song is exactly what I have been looking forward to hearing in the last few Harry Potter movies. It has the quality of being both ethereal and haunting. Overall a spot on soundtrack and I look forward to being able to listen to it over and over again.

When I saw the movie and heard the score of Mr. N. Hooper, I thought that the score was spot on. Me, being an Irish-Scotsman at heart, thought that the snippet of "Farwell Aragog" was wonderfully haunting and did strike a cord. Nicholas Hooper, in my opinion, is perfect to create the score for Harry Potter

As Harry matures, so does the music. Nicholas Hooper has yet again captured the emotion of Harry Potter. Patrick Doyle and John Williams did well, but I believe Nicholas Hooper did fantastic.

THe songs are catchy, sad, and emotional. I thought it would be wizard rock. The price is amazing for 28 amazing songs.

For movies as the ones of the Harry Potter saga the music is of the most important elements, since it is what gives the adequate atmosphere to a movie. In the case of this Nicholas Hooper´s score the music not only creates an atmosphere but, makes you feel it. The sonorous an soulful music of the score is dark enough, but at the same time beautifull as the world of Harry Potter. One example of this contrast are the themes of "Harry and Hermione", which is absolutely beatiful, peaceful and even passionate, making us feel the love of hermione towards Ron and the mutual sad felling of Harry and Hermione, in contrast with "Malfoy´s Mission" that makes you feel all the fear in Draco´s soul. In few words this is until now the best of the scores in the Harry potter movie-saga for its sonority and its soulfulness, along with John williams's score "Harry Potter and The Prisioner of Azkaban"

I have enjoyed all of the Harry Potter movie scores and this one is no exception. It evokes the feeling of the movie every time I hear it!

I think that for such a good movie they got pretty lazy in creating a new score. A lot of the score is from the previouse movie witch is fine but I was expecting a more original score.

All the Harry Potter soundtracks are great. If you are a huge Potter fan like myself this is a must have for your collection.

Bought the soundtrack before seeing movie. Didn't listen to it until I seen movie. After watching the movie I couldn't wait to hear the soundtrack.

I might have just liked this cd because i love the harry potter books and the movies, well at times, but i loved the music on this CD i recomemded it to my other obbsessed friends and they loved it too... =)

I absolutely adore this soundtrack. The music shapes the movie scenes and with every song I feel as if I am watching the scene happening. I ask, what would Harry Potter be without it's own soundtrack.

Great, moving score that definitely captures the emotion in the 6th part of the series. I only wish the tracks were longer. Hooper doesn't borrow much of John Williams' themes from the earlier scores, but he definitely makes his mark with his motifs during the darker portions of the movie.
