Description

The book by British author Diana Wynne Jones, "Howl's Moving Castle" has been turned into a brand new animated film by none other than Studio Ghibli's Hayao Miyazaki himself. Three years since the critical and commercial hit of "Spirited Away," the anticipation has grown to monumental levels as millions of people worldwide wait to experience the visionary filmmaker's next outing. Japan's November premiere of this long-awaited film is already guaranteed to be the cinematic event of the year. The album contains the original soundtrack music to the movie, including the main theme "Sekai no Yakusoku," written by Youmi Kimura, arranged by Joe Hisaishi, with vocals performed by acclaimed actress Chieko Baisho who plays the film's heroine, Sophie.

          Beautiful 5

          The first time I heard this soundtrack, it wasn't one of my favourites even though I tend to adore any that Joe Hisaishi churned out in the past. I'd have to say that even if some of the themes were a tad disparate, this has to be one of my most favourite soundtracks.

          Really Nice 5

          This Soundtrack is very nice to listen to. The melody theme is played often in different styles but that is OK when you like it. It reminds excellent on the movie.

          Great CD!!! 5

          This movie was excellent! Hayao Miyazaki is a brillian film maker. He truly is the Walt Disney of Japan! Howl's Moving Castle was an excellent film and the music just brung it to life. Joe Hisaishi composed a wonderful score!!! Get this CD if you loved the movie! It's beautiful!

          God's songs 5

          The last movie from Hayao Miyazaki until the moment. The music is beautiful remembering his previous movies.
