Harry Potter and the Hogwarts... music for the new age...

Well, I just got back from the Harry Potter and the Hogwarts concert. If you thought, after already eclipsing the book, film and merchandise industries Harry Potter couldn't claim any more victims - along came this amazing musical phenomenon.

The music is a mixture of techno beats, the xylophone and jazz organ, which to be quite honest, is odd and somewhat grates on your ears. I suppose it's an effort to be different whilst still retaining that 'pop' sound. The lead singer is fantastic, though, I have to admit I never thought anyone could sing quite so high and then low in quick sucession. Mostly people seem to enjoy the music, though, and reviews have been exceptional.

The most scary thing about Harry Potter and the Hogwarts is that they're an official band, recognised by Warner Brothers and Jo Rowling. They're also immensely successful. It was a full house when I went, and their record has already sold over 20 million copies world wide. Considering their album has been out three days, this is rather worrying. The group seems set to dethrone The Beatles from their place as most wildly acclaimed group.

So, it seems, Harry Potter is taking over the world.
