Composer Harry Gregson-Williams Kingdom of Heaven, Man on Fire, Spy Game takes on the magical world of C.S. Lewis' Narnia, infusing director Andrew Adamson's big screen adaptation with predictable wonder and reliable bravado. Williams, who also worked on Adamson's two Shrek films, keeps things moving with the help of longtime collaborators Lisbeth Scott vocals and Hugh Marsh electric violin, both of whom provide The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe with some of its key emotional moments.

All Music Guide - James Christopher Monger
Composer Harry Gregson-Williams Kingdom of Heaven, Man on Fire, Spy Game takes on the magical world of C.S. Lewis' Narnia, infusing director Andrew Adamson's big screen adaptation with predictable wonder and reliable bravado. Williams, who also worked on Adamson's two Shrek films, keeps things moving with the help of longtime collaborators Lisbeth Scott vocals and Hugh Marsh electric violin, both of whom provide The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe with some of its key emotional moments. Williams' dramatic choral arrangements do their best to emphasize childhood awe, and the Celtic-tinged character motifs evolve naturally, but the overall effect is that of any fantasy film. Lord of the Rings comparisons aside, Williams' Narnia holds little in the way of power, and with source material that carries as strong an undercurrent of seriousness beneath its storybook exterior as Tolkein's, the whole affair comes off as a noble yet empty gesture. [The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is also available in a two-disc collector's edition that includes a 40-page booklet, as well as a DVD boasting a photo gallery, numerous interviews, and a documentary.]

    Magnificent

    When I heard that they were making The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe and movie, I had high expectations for it. I am thankful to say, that they were met. This score is an absolute joy to listen to, especially if you like Harry Gregson-Williams' work (i.e. Kingdom of Heaven). I think the Narnia Lullaby track is the best song on the cd. The over all theme has a crisp and pure feel, unlike many soundtracks that have been produced lately. My hat goes off to Gregson-Williams. He did a great job.
