[[Warning, this review gushes!]] As far as Harry Potter movies go, The Order of the Phoenix falls somewhere in the middle of the pack for quality, however, for soundtracks, this one can't be beat! This music stands extremely well on its own as a masterful work of brilliance! I just can't get enough of this soundtrack. The Oscar and the Grammy should go to this one for best musical score. The music perfectly complements the action in the movie. On its own, this music is engaging and smart. It is a pleasure to listen to over and over. Buy it! Put it on! Turn it up!! It's also great in headphones for a more intimate listening!
