From the studio that brought you Shrek, Madagascar, and Kung Fu Panda comes the 3D adventure How to Train Your Dragon. Set in the mythical world of burly Vikings and wild dragons and based on the book by Cressida Cowell, the action comedy tells the story of Hiccup, a Viking teenager who doesn't exactly fit in with his tribe's longstanding tradition of heroic dragon slayers. Hiccup's world is turned upside down when he encounters a dragon that challenges him and his fellow Vikings to see the world from an entirely different point of view.

This is no doubt John Powell's best score to date. This entire score is amazing! Forbidden Friendship, Test Drive, and Romantic Flight are the stars of this score.
beautiful soundtrack; really stimulates rarely touched emotions; different from all others. Unique in composition & bagpipe usage. Total keeper.
This is the best soundtrack that i have listened to. This is very inspirational and lifts your hopes high. Hope you get this amazing soundtrack that will change your life and spirit to a whole new level.
As my husband and I watched "How to Train your Dragon", we both knew we needed the soundtrack. We purchased it as soon as we could- it is amazing! There is very little vocal on the entire track, and the majority of the songs are short (under 2 minutes), which makes it perfect for background music for a dinner party or conversation time. It is fantastically soothing, but not enough to put you to sleep- just right to listen to after a long day!
These songd are just too beautiful !!! When I close my eyes and listen to these songs I'm caught up in the gorgoues melodies and carried off on the back of Toothless too Berk. Any one who who doesn't like these songs (of which Forbidden Friendship and Romantic Flight are my favorites) is off thier rocker,batty and just plain nuts!!! Bravo Mr. Powell!!!! Bravo!!!! Good job to Jonsi too, I'm just a little bit confused. Is he singing some French in Sticks and Stones? Or is it just Scottish? Anywho bravo to all those who worked on this amazing on this amazing soundtrack.
This How to Train Your Dragon soundtrack absolutely ROCKS! I think I like the first track the best. The movie was the BEST MOVIE EVER and so is this soundtrack!!!!
David Tennant (who has a cameo in the film - formerly The Doctor, soon to be Hamlet on PBS) recorded this story already several years ago and it is still available in the UK. In fact, he's recorded FIVE of the Hiccup books - the latest being released the week of 15 April in the UK. Why in the WORLD would they have someone else read them and release them instead of releasing the originals in the US? It makes NO sense whatsoever.
