@hybrid soldier<br>Where can i hear the songs you have listed out? I can't find it on YouTubeLooks like Zimmer's abandoned Z+. It only worked on one iOS system, then because it wasn't recompiled for the next system wouldn't decode the music you paid for. Locking your purchases into an app was a VERY BAD idea. Now there's nothing out there that's as good at providing a great surround sound experience for headphones.So Lorne's mp3 uploads. Would anyone class that as an 'official' release of the music from the movie?Currently watching this movie the first time ^^ ... and then... suddenly a music motive spontaneously pops up. Sound exactly like a little part from Armageddon "Secondary Protocol" -  really cool :) love the music in this movie. Very intense.I don't mean to pile on but do you really think that Hans touring is the only obstacle to a CD release of a completely forgotten 12-year-old film and score by a different composer?
And why would Hans' tours be responsible for the fact that many albums these days don't get a physical release? While at the same time those tours even got an LP release... lolYou are aware that there's a pandemic going on right now, right?I'm pretty sure that neither did he.I know Geoff does fantasy films and he is good at that, but I didn't want this.Lovely score by Atli, but also a bit typical for this kind of movie. This suite is all you need from this score. The songs are really great. Especially Double Trouble, Husavik and Running With The Wolves (i wish this song would be longer). Very nice movie and with a great soundtrack.
Please tell me. When time come to Moscow.Wtf is up with that Time remix with Alan Walker?@ Michael Hayko<br>cause yeah, there really is a market for a physical CD of a mediocre score of a film that everybody has forgotten even exists........said no one everOkay Zimmer it's time to get back to producing physical CDs and put your live performances on hold. You can start by producing 'Deception' it's such an amazing score! Okay you've had your fun pretending to be a rockstar now let's get back to the business of film music please!
Top news :<br><br> nd-dune-lion-king-ascap-awards-1234646855/i did not realize i put shit instead of shine lmaoooo fml I'm out of here lolHow do I get this soundtrack??? Dying to hear it.Oh, sorry, I thought we are talking about Dune here.I remember Hans directly responding to me on Facebook saying that this score is gonna be mostly him. Oh well, from the "Kawczynski - Mazzaro" duo, Steve is at least a much, much better choice. And as Hybrid says, it might be embellished.

Any interviews around where Powell talks about this masterpiece?

Powell for Oscar!

first of all, this is the page for How to Train Your Dragon, not The Lion King.
second, it seems as if many walmarts have completely eliminated the soundtrack section in favor of more mainstream pop/rock sections.
third, the only complete score that currently exists online has extremely poor quality, and is hardly worth looking for in the first place.

All we can do is wait until Hans & disney finally come up with an official release.

Best Powell score since Horton Hears A Who, it's to give him a Oscar.

The Best Soundtrack (with Jurassic Park, Titanic and The Lord of the Rings) that I had ever listen !
Great John Powell! Is the Best. Congratulations and now to the Oscars 2010 !!!

I finally learned why the Vikings are Scottish and the music is bagpipes -- the author of the books based the story on her childhood vacations on a secret island in the Hebrides. Faith in Dreamworks restored (although I loathe and detest their plans to franchise this magical movie). Still trying to figure out how gamelan fits in (Forbidden Friendship). But I'm sure there is a reason. *I love this music.*

This's great music perfectly applicable for this movie.It really makes me feel better.He made a big contribution in movie "How to train your dragon".I hope he'll continue his work in the next movie.Believe me this is gonna be something incredible.

Both Powell and Giacchino are brilliant! BUT WOW! this is the most inspiring piece of music i have ever heard. Right up their with John Williams if not better! "Coming back Around" is by far the Best!
He needs to be nominated and win an oscar for this score.....its original and beautiful and he deserves it greatly!

This music is beyond amazing. When I listen to it, I feel so uplifted and it makes me want to be something incredible. Like Hiccup :D However, seeing as how I can't fight Dragons, my dreams are cut short...

Anyways, I only wish I could compose even a sixteenth as well as John Powell did in this soundtrack. As an aspiring musician and composer, hearing this type of music makes me want to be a soundtrack composer even more. I just love what the mind can come up with - This movie and the music is a perfect example of just how incredible the power of the mind and music truly is.

Thank you -- well I heard the brogue as well. Being a mom I instantly thought of Shrek and the ogres (they were also given a brogue). Anyway, okay on the accent, and the bagpipes. Musicology wise though, I know nothing about bagpipes! Again, I love this total soundtrack. I can't wait to see the movie again. I have not been so obsessed by a soundtrack since ET.

I bought the soundtrack the day after I saw the movie. I play it while working, while ice skating. I love the gamelin and harp -- what an original orchestration -- on Forbidden Friendship, and the ostenato of that track -- combined with the visuals of that completely original and memorable scene. Flying to the Dragon Den reminded me of Wagner. I saw the movie twice in one weekend (regular and 3D) and I am going again this weekend. I am old enough to be a granny and I love this movie and this music! I'm curious about one thing though, why the Scottish sounding music, were Vikings Scottish?

Anonymous reply Replies: 0 || 2010-04-21 00:00:00
@ alison
No the Vikings were not scottish, they were norwegian, the music is scottish, either by request of the director or maybe because powell felt that it would be better and btw the king and the teacher in the movie are Scottish.

Your system of webradio is a big bullshit. I've tried all 3 song and i've see same answer "AudioRealm Request failed!". Why? Because "Track recently played". Ia not fair...

WOW! I mean seriously WOW! I absolutely love this sound track! Best since the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe! My favorite track has got to be Test Flight! Although, Forbidden Friendship is great too! That part is so tense and sweet in the movie! You know the whole time that the Night Fury could absolutely obliterate the scrawny viking, Hiccup. Yet he doesn't. There is so much power in that scene! Excellent!!

Forbidden Friendship and Test Drive earn honorable mention because seriously WOW. But the whole soundtrack is absolutely brilliant. I really hope this gets Powell an Oscar (nomination or win as long as this gets recognition). Takes my breath away every time i listen to it.
