Hits of Alexandre Desplat Pt. 1
 
 
Well I'm not a big fan of Alexandre Desplat from what I've heard so far, but I must admit that I was devastated and completely let down from what I heard from The Deathly Hallows Pt. 1. I am hoping that he redeems himself with the second part due out the middle of this year. For me, his music tends to sound the same and he does a lot of either the tinkly kind of music found in more comic situations or he does really deep, emotional, and brooding types of music. He doesn't seem to do particularly well with themes or motifs, or he stays away from them for whatever reason. The man is also one of Hollywood's busiest composers at the moment; I don't know how he doesn't get burned out. The future should be bright if he can get out of some of his current musical ruts.
