So awesome! When I heard the music before watching the movie, it was already amazing! And when I heard it with the movie, more amazing! Alexandre Despalt did seriously well! Congrats to him for the nomination!

I’m so pleased this was nominated!!! Lily’s theme is the most haunting and beautiful piece of music I’ve heard!! It set the scene for the entire film! Amazing!

The soundtrack was amazing! I love how when Voldy’s been defeated you hear a sample of Lily’s theme and it just fits. Its like Harry finally avenged his mother. The opening scene was amazing and a lot of it was helped by the soundtrack. Part One’s opening scene was made spectacular by the music and I wondered how if they could top it and they did!
