28 Clips From the ‘Dawn Treader’ Soundtrack

Posted November 14, 2010 9:51 pm by Glumpuddle

Cinema Musica has posted our first peek at Composer David Arnold’s musical score for The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. The soundtrack releases on December 7.

You can listen to twenty-eight short clips here.

The music is another area of this film that makes it feel like a fresh start for the series. Ever since it was announced that David Arnold would be replacing Harry Gresgon-Williams, fans have been discussing how similar his music would be to the previous two films. Would Arnold stick to the themes that were established in “Wardrobe” and “Caspian” or would he take it in a new direction? So far, it sounds like he has done both.

Thanks to ‘G’ and everyone else who sent this in!

    These songs are incredibly beautiful and unique in their own way!! Definitely a change from the first two films, but I love how David Arnold incorporated the Narnian themes from Harry Gregson-Williams. Perfection! <3

    I’m so far in love with “Opening Titles,” (I’m already set to go to Narnia), “1st Sword” is lovely, “Temptation of Edmund” is so eerie and dramatic!!, “Under the Stars” is too cute, “Blue Star” sounds so ethereal, “Liliandil and Dark Island” builds my suspense, “The Calm Before the Storm” sounds…amazing, and “Sweet Water” makes me want to cry!!!!! I cannot wait to hear the rest.

    Wonderful pieces of work, David Arnold. I like the change of style

    P.S. Oh, and I just have to say this: When I listen to “The Lone Island,” I picture Aladdin running through the marketplace in Agrabah with the guards behind him yelling, “Street Rat!” Ahahaha! Just sayin’…LOL.

  • FriendOfNarnia2 says:

    Sounds fantastic to me! Overall it has a more of a "Narnian feel" too it. It seems a little less "epic" than the previous two soundtracks.

    I’m also glad he was able to include the main theme song into his score!

    No complaints here!

  • Princess Lucy says:

    the duel and the dragons treasure sounds funny…eustrace sounds like a really funny character in this film which is great…all the other soundtracks also sound great…they suit the subplots of the story which is excillent…

  • Ari says:

    Absolutely beautiful! Wasn’t certain at first, but the mixture of old and new has gotten me hooked!

  • InLoveWithAslan says:

    Oh, my gosh! I think I actually might like this soundtrack. Not that I didn’t like the first two, but I think it was in Dave Arnold’s best intrest to keep the "Narnian theme" in the third movie. Really excited for the movie now!

  • Em says:

    Hmm. It sounds a little, oh, what’s the word – childish?- to me. All those little twinkly noises. But I haven’t heard the whole thing yet, so I can’t really complain. I’m probably being a bit too suspicious of a new composer b/c I really loved HGW’s score. It really does sound pretty Narnian though – for the most part.

    • aslan'schild says:

      it does sound too childish.too much twinkly noises and bells sound.i liked harrys better cause even in battle it made you wanna crie and it sounded more narnia to me.but im trying to keep in mind that this time is ar seas so it is very different than the other 2.lets see if it sounds better when we see the familiar faces on the big screan!!!

    • High Queene Shelly Belly says:

      I got that feeling too, kind of like disney’s Pinnochio with the Blue fairy type sound. Probably supposed to sound "magical". Less "epic" sounding, for sure, more traditional orchestra sounds, less battleworthy. Beautiful, but typical. I’d say.

  • C. Alexander says:

    Beautiful…. I also think it somehow sounds more Narnian….

  • Daughter_of_Eve18 says:

    Simply beautiful tracks thus far! I’m a soundtrack buff and it sounds like there are influences in there from other fantasy/adventure movies, such as Harry Potter, Pirates and a bit Danny-Elfman-esce. Not that I’m complaining…those soundtracks are fantastic!! Excited for the movie but NOT so excited to see the words "INTO BATTLE" as one of the last tracks. What could they possibly be battling?? Mist??

    • Talvi says:

      I definitely heard things that reminded me of other soundtracks (soundtrack buff here too, lol!) But overall I loved it. I REALLY loved that they kept the main theme alive, while adding new flair. Some parts reallly reminded me of Pirates of the Caribbean, and there were a few other movies I was reminded of, too. I can’t say this is the most original soundtrack I’ve ever heard, but I do like it!!!

      • Princess Lucy says:

        in the battle soundtrack is the battle of the sea serphent offcourse…i thought there was a bit of pirates of the carribean in the tracks esp the action ones…i thought i was thinking of pirates but now i know u guys are thinking the same…its not a bad news though…i like it alot!!!

      • The Archenlander says:

        yea, i heard a lot of "pirates" and "harry potter" themes

      • megellen says:

        yeah i heard some Harry Potter stuck in there too, i mean not too original, i think the first ones were better but still i haven’t listened to the whole thing so i can’t say whether i like it or not

    • Mr. Anderson says:

      One of the most blatant "influences" would have to be in track 5 – Land Ahoy. Listen to that, and then listen to this – Shooting Star from the Stardust soundtrack (1:07 being where the relevant part starts): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5exhwAvO3-M
      XD

    • Bookwyrm says:

      I was really critical of the first two scores, but at least Harry only plagiarized his own style. Unfortunately the only thing that sounds original and different in these clips are the remixes of Harry’s work. The rest is poor imitations of music done better by other composers. Very disappointing considering I really thought I would love this score even if the movie was iffy.

  • Skilletdude says:

    Hey, new music! Haven’t heard any new Narnia music since LWW. Well okay, I guess Gregson-Williams wrote a couple new cues for Prince Caspian. 😉

    The point being, I’m glad Arnold pumped out some new material for this series! It needed it. None of these previews really stand out to me yet, except maybe the opening titles. But it seems like this will compliment the film just fine.

  • Edson07bs says:

    I loved "Under the Stars". Sweet Water is amazing, I’m waiting forward to buy the CD.

  • Rhys says:

    It’s not as…magical for me as the first two. A little more consistency with the first few would have been nice- although where the themes have gone through, they are very beautiful.

    Maybe it’ll sound a lot different in the actual film.

    • Samuel the Magnificent says:

      I wasn’t amazed by by most of them either. I loved the narnian music in the first two especially the first one. I’m glad he kept some of the old themes. I loved the under the stars one.

  • RoseRed says:

    these are lovely! I really loved LWW music, but I actually found the PC music distracting, in that it was WAY TOO SIMILAR, for my tastes. for me, music holds strong associations, so when very similar music played in PC as was in the lamppost scene in LWW, I found it rather distracted from the wonderful action on screen. 🙁
    anyway, 🙂 in contrast, these sound wonderful, paying homage to the old…whilst moving forward with new stuff. hurrah!

  • Aslan's Country says:

    "High King and Queen of Narnia"? Really? This title is official, then?

  • Griffle says:

    Love it! Made me think of the BBC movies somehow and how the music for those felt like pure magic to my ears one Chistmas some 20 years ago. Yep, I’m old guys…Wonderul work David! I love how some of the tracks, like Land Ahoy and Blue Star borrows heavily from your Stargate score. (One of the best scores ever IMO) Looking forward to owning this on CD!

    • Griffle says:

      Been thinking about this all day… "Opening Titles" sounds like a mix of music from Stargate (David Arnold) and X-Men: The Last Stand (John Powell)

  • Lamppost says:

    It’s remarkable how often Arnold uses triple meter in several of the cuts from the soundtrack – and sometimes if the music isn’t in 3, he has an instrument playing triplets. He also employs elements of dance music (including waltz, Latin style, etc.), and orchestra bells – the latter tend to lend a *magical* sound to the music! Looking forward to hearing the entire score.

  • DamselJillPole says:

    I really love the opening titles, Under the Stars and Blue Star has got to be my favorite. I can’t wait to hear the rest of it.

  • Pepper Darcy says:

    I sooooo love 14, 17, and 28 is just georgeous!! 😀 I *LOVE* his rendition of the old Narnia theme. I had chills. I was sorta hoping some of the old theme would be a little more promenate, just varried, but oh well.

    Some of the soundtrack reminded me of the life and beauty that was in the How to Train Your Dragon soundtrack. Hopefully it sounds as good as that. But I’ve got to listen to the whole thing to give my final verdict. I hope I like it. I’m a little nervous about it right now :/ But it sounds wonderful and epic! 😀

  • Starlily says:

    Very pretty. It will be interesting to hear the music in context with the movie. I really like "Duel" and "Lucy’s Temptation". I guess it’s not the most original score, but it’s nice to hear something new. However, I really like that they kept the main theme. That’s one thing I really liked about the old soundtrack, and I’m glad it will be played when Aslan appears.
    I just hope the music won’t be thrown in loudly at odd moments like it was sometimes in the other two movies. Sometimes it felt a bit out of place.

  • glumPuddle says:

    I just listened to a few. If I hear too much music before I see a movie, I’m distracted by it when it’s played. "Oh, there’s the clip I heard online!"

    • Pepper Darcy says:

      somehow, that makes me laugh! I do the *same* thing…. ‘did you hear the music as THIS point? It was awesome!’ other: ‘uh, no… I watched the movie.’ =)

    • FriendOfNarnia2 says:

      On which movie did you make that discovery?

      • Pepper Darcy says:

        talking to glumpuddle or me? If me… well, I do that with any movie, how to train your dragon, LotR, anything… if I don’t like the music, I end up ignoring it (like in Star Wars) 🙂 I pay attention to the Narnia music though 😀

  • Duffleglum says:

    Sounds nice, but it doesn’t sound particularly epic or melodically flowing between one track and the next…
    I was hoping for a center theme in it all.

    It might sound better in the film, so we’ll see.

  • High Queen of Narnia says:

    You know, just because we don’t hear a lot of the old Narnia themes in these few second clips doesn’t mean that they aren’t in the score. I mean, if you were giving clips to new score you wrote, why would they all have old themes that someone else wrote? So I think there will be more old Narnia themes in the actual soundtrack.

  • Danieljofficial says:

    I’ve been listening to these since yesterday, and so far, I love them! 12 (The Duel) is my favorite so far; it sounds like an Irish jig and it makes me want to dance. "Be nimble! Be nimble! It’s a dance, boy!"
    9 (The Lone Islands) reminds me of Aladdin or Prince of Persia.

    8 (the Green Mist) is pretty epic.

    Ahh there’s too many to comment on…I love them all!

    • Princess Lucy says:

      lol the lone island track reminds me of prince of persia and aladdin totally…its funny how the composer is influenced by epic films..lol…and there is sure is alot of different styles in each track…its cool as the islands and the subplots in the film are very different which connects with each track….wow

  • Warrior 4 Jesus says:

    I enjoyed the music from the first two movies (LWW moreso than PC because that was rather repetitive of LWW) but they were sometimes too modern and often too busy and bombastic. This VDT soundtrack is fanatastic! I may even buy it (I rarely buy soundtracks). The samples show someone with an understanding of the need for quieter moments, for ambient music, for moments with just several instruments at a time. I know next to nothing about making music but it seems to be balanced well. Never too busy. The music is epic but grounded and personal, without losing the immensity of the journey. The music captures the majesty and magic of VDT without resorting to childish tunes. There’s huge variety. It seems to borrow from Walden’s LWW and PC, the BBC series and classical movies, even some classic Disney movies. Excellent!

  • Aslie says:

    From a musician’s point of view, this soundtrack is amazing. I love the mixtures of themes and how he in cooperated not only new ones but also old ones as well. We have a saying among the Musical world that the Soundtrack makes or breaks the movie. This soundtrack will very much make this movie for sure. Such a new twist on things.

  • Nathan says:

    that’s boring

    • Warrior 4 Jesus says:

      Are you the same Nathan who is writing pointless posts all over the comments section? If so, please stop being stupid. Thanks

  • Val says:

    I suddenly remembered Dany Elfman, cof cof. Im realistic guys 🙁

  • dinode says:

    When I translated the page it turned "island" to "Iceland". Just listen to the music, don’t bother translating.

  • Mayor Wilkins says:

    This music is wonderful.
    But I do hope that there is more of the original themes in the finished product.
    "The Green Mist" sounds epic. 😉

  • DearHeart says:

    This is a beautiful soudtrack!! I could defiently hear the influence of Amazing Grace. Can’t wait for the movie to come out.
    -What Might Have Happened-

  • Shastafan says:

    I LOVE David Arnold’s score! I especially like "The Painting," "High King And Queen Of Narnia," "Land Ahoy," and "Dragon Attack." All of these though are really good, and I can’t wait to hear them in the movie! 😀

  • Twinimage says:

    Hmmmmm. So much I want to say. I’m listening to them now.
    They really seem to fit well with the rest of the series’ music.
    I found Reepicheep’s theme to be surprisingly subdued.
    lol, the green mist is actually called green mist.
    Didn’t care much for that piece of music. Not really evil sounding, just menacing, yet non-threatening unlike other past "villain" themes in the other films.
    But the spirit of the music is great. It’s really cool to
    finally get to hear the music. 😀

    • Danbuster says:

      They probably intend that theme to be reminiscent of the lullaby the Dryad sang to him, about where the waves grow sweet in the Utter East.

      • Twinimage says:

        Hmmm, good point.
        At least it’s not too playful or bouncy. I can see them trying to make him be all cute and kiddie oriented. So at least they seem to be handling his character with some respect. The subdued nature may be a good thing for him after all.

  • Emily says:

    Different… I was hoping for more of the old epic Narnia themes. I was expecting Caspian and Reep’s theme to show up… It definitely has a different sound. Kinda like old Disney cartoon/Arabian/Nutcracker ballet feel. I like a lot of the clips. #12, 14 & 20 sound really neat. #13 sounds like it’ll go into a really cool theme.

    I’m gonna wait until I hear it all in the movie to really judge the music. To me, the music is just as important as the movie. I remember hearing the music during the opening credits of LWW and PC and thinking "This is amazing music. It’ll be a great movie."

    • High Queene Shelly Belly says:

      yeah, good point- sounds like old ballet class music- or very old disney- funny THIS movie sounds more disneyian than the disney narnia movies-

  • Mirima Rosetrader says:

    I love it! I especially like "High King and Queen of Narnia" and "Reepicheep"! 😀

  • HisWarrior says:

    This sounds AMAZING!!! It sounds like David Arnold had integrated his own style into what Harry Gregson-Williams already put down. It sounds more magical than ever before, and I can’t wait for the soundtrack to come out!!!

  • Queen Su says:

    I’m going to love this soundtrack! The music is so Narnian. I like how he does bring back a few themes from the previous two soundtracks. The music totally has a "Sea Adventure" feel about it. I love "Reepicheep". 🙂

  • : )Narnia says:

    For some reason the Duel sticks out to me as holding entertaining qualities I enjoy. I can picture the fight between Reepicheep and Eustace being something of a comedy that many fans can enjoy as being a breather in between possible intense scenes.

  • Ugly Pig says:

    Well, this sounds very promising IMO. If it had to be a different composer than HGW, I’m glad they went with David Arnold because

    1) almost every other composer would probably completely ignore the established themes from the first movies, but not Arnold… he’s secure in his awesomeness and not afraid to use other people’s compositions when it is appropriate to do so (and I love how HGW’s theme sounds in Arnold’s arrangement)

    2) David Arnold is awesome. I’ve liked his work for a long time, in fact, his "Independence Day" score was one of the first score albums I ever bought.

  • Lee says:

    Have you lot noticed that the CD cover has changed now as well? Gone is Aslan’s snowy face and in comes a film poster like artwork – much better imo!

  • lucyrocks17 says:

    Beautiful… but I want Harry Gregson Williams back!

  • Fire vien says:

    Its offical, I’m in LOVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Narnian Meerkat says:

    Very beautiful and classic. I like it. Though, I do have to say many of them sounded a bit cheezy. . . .But I love the tracks, Duel, Aslan Returns, High King and Queen of Narnia, Reepicheep, Eustace on Deck, Lilindill and Dark Island (sorta, not really) and Temptation of Edmund. Those are the tracks I most like. But I do agree, Harry Gregson-Williams is alot better. . . .

    • Narnian Meerkat says:

      The music mostly reminded me a bit of The Water Horse: Legend of the Deep (LOVE that music!) and Eragon (Good movie!).

  • Bookwyrm says:

    So this is what you get when you put Danny Elfman’s entire body of work, the Stargate score, Hans Zimmer’s PoTC score, John Williams’ HP scores, and Michael Giacchino’s Star Trek score in a blender and press pulse. Meh.

  • Loyal Narnian says:

    Oh I love Aslan Appears! Alot of the music sounds too generic though. Not Narnian.

  • Danbuster says:

    Reepicheep’s gonna hate me for saying this, but that snapshot of him is so cute! ^_^

  • silent warrior Trinity-hawkeye291 says:

    I love the music soundtrack! i am going to buy the soundtrack…..please give me the updated for the soundtrack!

  • LucyTheValiant says:

    i’m absolutly in love with the music, i think it sounds perfect for narnia. High King and Queen of Narnia is lovely because its from prince caspian. Does anyone else think that land ahoy sounds exactly like the music from the movie stardust? 🙂

  • QueenLucytheValient says:

    Well, uh I have no idea what to say. I like some, but they all sound like they are from old movies, I don’t like the begining of Lucy and the Mansion, it sounds too Christmasy. I have to say I am kinda dissappointed, I liked the epic feel of the other music from the other two movies.

  • narnian resident says:

    well….i was kind of hoping they would have tied in the old themes more. i was even hoping to hear Reep’s theme of the french horn (my favorite!) and Caspian’s theme. it sounds awfully….tingly. i dont know, that doesnt really seem right for Narnia to have so many tingly sounds. i was hoping for more epic, adventurous songs. the choice of instruments is very nice though, i was impressed with that. i espically love that violin in "Duel" and the lovely harp in "Lord Bern". "Aslan Appears" is very beautiful. i really loved that one, with the old Narnia theme in it (i was really really hoping they would do that for Aslan, so its great). i wonder whats going to be the part where the music goes crazy in "Temptation of Edmund"? that really surpised me. i really love all the hyper, sort of hopping music for Eustace. thats a nice theme there. i dont really like the music for the stars (any clip that had to do with the stars, including Aslan’s table), that seemed too childish and….glittery?
    overall, the new themes are nice and all, but i was really hoping they would have kept alot more of the old themes. only about 3 times did i hear a hint of an old theme, which im quite dissapointed about. but, i shall say now, that it is indeed very beautiful and well done; i am impressed, but not as much i wish i could be. i am a person who doesnt like change, and usually prefer the familiar, so it might just be because this is new music and im not used to it yet. i do have confidence that it will sound great with the movie. my opinion? overall good, but i cannot say yet that i think its perfect and spectacular.

  • Mase992 says:

    I’m sorry if it sounds like I’m bitching but these are just my thoughts. Anyway…

    30 songs total; only 28 previews. Music by David Arnold.

    Number 3 is beautiful and stirring… I think the new themes sound too much like "Stardust" though, most notably in the first two songs and 5, which is too cheesy. "Reepicheep" is sweet, although in this preview it lacks the sort of spirit that enobles Reepicheep’s character, but I can definitely feel the LWW vibes. "Green Mist" sounds epic; I love the sound of that one. 9’s a huge meh, so is 10 and 11. "Duel"’s awesome. Just the kind of thing that I wanted to hear in this soundtrack (although it sounds like a bastard son of the Tinkerbell movie main theme with Up is Down from Pirates 3). 13 – not much to say. 14 sounds too much like a Christmas song. 15 is building up to be good, imo. 16 is enthralling but nothing too special. Mostly, the best ones are reorchestrations of pieces by Harry-Gregson Williams, like 17. 18 sounds lazy but it’s only, what, 51 seconds? 19’s okay but I think it should be sneakier instead of loud if this occurs in the scene I think it does (Goldwater Island). 20, reminds me too much of the Peter Pan OST with hints of HP1. Again, no discerning theme whatsoever, just random little pieces here and there. 21 – mmkay. I’ll have to see this with footage. 22, finally a more lovely piece, gosh I want some more. 23 way too cheesy. 24 bland, childish thing. 25- Honestly, this song reminds me of a videogame foe mini piece. 26 – The Calm before the- really? 27 – wait, what battle? 28- I think this is the one for the Silver Sea. BEAUTIFUL. AT LAST but it still is a rehash of the main Narnia theme (but I may like the BBC’s take on this part a little bit more… it’s more ethereal).

    Generally unimpressive. The music does have a sort of more airy quality to it which may make it good but forgettable.

    Couldn’t discern a unifying theme but of course, these are still only previews and I may be being too critical with no reason… from what I’m hearing tho, the BBC version has much more memorable pieces.

    Again these don’t even show a taste of each piece so I may be surprised. Who knows? 🙂

    Thoughts?

  • Cynical Narnia Fanboy says:

    what a great take on the old theme, specifically in "king and queen of narnia"
    it’s a bit more classical sounding, not as modern as the first two

    • High Queene Shelly Belly says:

      you hit the nail right on the head- the first two were more modern scores, this new on e is more traditional classical music-

  • Casue says:

    Like i always say, its the music that makes the film.
    I like it. Very peaceful for the most of what i listened to but i gotta go like right now.
    I do miss Harry Gregson-Williams though, his music was so, smine tingling and made me feel like i really was in Narnia, this sorta does, but we haven’t heard it all yet, and i can’t wait for the soundtrack.
    *Explodes in a fit of rainbows*

    Chibi Casue Go POOF

  • Evan Morgan says:

    At first I thought that the music was too light and well… pretty, I guess,but now I am starting to like it. There are some that I love and some that I don’t like as much but still like. They’re just only clips of the songs, so I can’t make a final opinion. Exciting, though! 😀

  • Narnia Freak says:

    AWESOME!!!! It has the same quality as the other soundtracks for LWW PC!

  • Matsi says:

    Wow.. They all sound so magical and adventurous! I can’t decide which I like best! My favorites are probably: Market Forces, Duel, Temptation of Edmund, Dragons treasure, Under the Stars, Into Battle, and Sweet Water. But they are all beautiful! 🙂

  • Alambil and Tarvis says:

    OMG THIS IS SO BEAUTIFUL. I knew David would do a wonderful job. I love how well he incorporated Harry’s original Narnia theme and some of Harry’s style into his score, but at the same time made it his own and gave a very distinct "sailing adventure" feel to it, which is perfect since VDT is so different a book from LWW and PC. It’s very reminiscent of his ‘Stargate’ score (which I LOVE), but it has a very Narnian atmosphere to it. "Under the Stars" sounds so romantic 😀 And so does "Blue Star"–although beginning sounds a BIT too much like the "Stargate Opens" theme, but I can deal with that since it’s gorgeous anyway.

    And "Sweet Water"? Just…WOW. <3

  • narnian resident says:

    you know what i really, really, REALLY hope they do is put in "One Breath" somewhere in the movie. you remember the song, the one that played during the train ride in LWW and then when they played on the beach in PC? thats like, Narnia’s label song, to me anyway. its very beautiful and it fits in with all the Narnia stories. ever since i heard it in LWW i’ve been hoping that they would always put it in every Narnia movie, somewhere where it really fits and sounds amazing. they’ve done am amazing job at that already, and so i’ll be sad if they dont put it in VDT. they just have to!

  • blueRain says:

    Whoa. This music is awesome, even compared to Wardrobe’s soundtrack. (I didn’t enjoy Caspian’s soundtrack.)

  • Meriel09 says:

    Hey, this is really good! I’m actually pleasently suprised. 🙂 I’m so glad he kept some of Harry Gregson-Williams’ themes. I hate it when a new composer comes on and just completely ignores the previous scores…
    Good job David Arnold. 😀

  • pselpevensie says:

    THEY’RE ALL AWESOME!!!!!!!! AM SOOOOO PUMPED THAT "THE THEME" IS IN THERE 🙂

  • High Queene Shelly Belly says:

    are carrie underwood’s song and the english x factor winner’s songs going to be tacked on? I know carrie’s is already on itunes but i dont want to download.

  • Waleed Sajjad Khan says:

    Lilliandil and Dark Island is my favorite! I love it – can’t wait to hear the full version!
    DECEMBER 10TH!!!

  • LadyRobyn says:

    Truthfully, I like some of the music he composed for the new movie, but it kinda lacks the power that Gregson-Williams brought to the pieces. When you listen to the soundtracks for the first two movies, your skin tingles and you get excited. I didn’t really get that feeling from these new pieces, although they were all very beautiful. In my opinion, Gregson-Williams will truly be missed with the release of this new film.

    • Narnia-Fan1 says:

      yeah you’re right these are all very beautiful tracks but none of them can reach the magic, the piece and the mistery of Harry’s Score.

    • Aravis and Hwin says:

      Yes. I like these songs, but they aren’t as magestic as Harry Gregson-Williams music. They don’t seem quite right.

    • High Queene Shelly Belly says:

      yeah, the first two soundtracks give me chills, this sounds merely pleasant.

    • Farsight1 says:

      I feel quite the opposite. I think Harry’s Narnia scores tended to be too much "in your face" and repetitive for their own good. This one is more nuanced, varied and intricate. Definitely an improvement.

  • Queen Emily the Valiant says:

    the music sounds amazing and opening titles is definetely my fave

  • Allen says:

    I really think that this music is lovely, but I am not overly impressed by it. It lacks some of the luster and majesty that Harry Gregson-Williams’ music had. I think if Arnold had kept more of a similar instrumentation that Gregson-Williams did, it would sound more impressive. BUT I am very happy that he kept some of the old themes in this 😀
