The Lord of the Rings: The Motion Picture Trilogy SoundtrackCD, Reprise Records 2003

Track list: Movie themes, May It Be, Into the West, Gollum's Song...

This very nice box has all the three Lord of the Rings movie soundtracks. I really loved the movies and the way they were made. All the detail that was put into the costumes, props, digital effects, everything. The music was certainly one part of it. Howard Shore, the composer behind it, has done a great work. I like the way different people and cultures sound different - my favourite is the Rohirrim, with their Scandinavian-influenced soundscape. It's the Hardanger fiddle, really. All of it is just great. I also like the songs - Enya's "May It Be" is probably the worst, but Annie Lennox's "Into the West" is just great, as is "Gollum's song", sung by the almost-Björk Emiliana Torrini. *****

But do you think they deserve to win an oscar? I don't know about that! I think the last movie was good, but the ending was a little long winded and it seemed to be mostly a regurgitation of the second movie.. Its still a five star movie though... No doubt.. The series puts Star Wars to shame.. I think Peter Jackson should direct the next Star Wars.. Maybe it can be saved?
