The Incomplete Recordings   Wednesday, February 8, 2006 (9:35 p.m.) 

How can they call this "complete" when some of the music is missing? God! We’re not stupid. This reminds of that crap called The Phantom menace: Ultimate Edition.
Therefore I would label this release as l>
I remember that Howard Shore said in an interview, that they were going to edit every note written for the movie, this is: the score used and unused, alternate tracks, different orchestrations, etc., but unfortunately, this release doesn’t contain the whole score for the Fellowship, but it’s certainly a great improvement over the first one.

Here’s a detailed inform on the missing music from the “complete recordings”:

The Prophecy. This excellent track hasn't been included.

The Shadow Of The Past. The first 14 seconds of this track are not included in the "complete recordings". An the choir section (which in the ost is so prominent) has been overshadowed by the high volume of the orchestra. A terrible mixing!

The treason of Isengard. From 02:54 to 03:10 not included.

The Back Rider. From 01:06 to 01:18 and from 01:40 to 01:44 not included. In the "complete recordings" the track titled "A Shortcut To Mushrooms" includes most of the music from "The Black Rider". And I must say that the editing as well as the mixing is very bad; again the orchestra is heard lauder than the choir (unlike in the ost); and the entrance of the choir is so abrupt that I'm almost convinced (because I couldn't find the lyrics for it) that it was cut in the middle of a word.

At The Sign Of The Prancing Poney. From 02:20 to 02:40 not included.

A Knife In The Dark. Some parts of the choral chant are different and a little bit shortened in the “complete recordings”. From 01:05 to 01:24 the choir has been removed, and only the orchestra is played.

Flight To The Ford. After the female solo ends, a soft and beautiful oboe is heard; but in the “complete recordings”, instead of the oboe, we hear the strings that accompany this gorgeous solo.

Many Meetings. From 02:25 to 03:05 Frodo’s strings performed theme is replaced by a solo flute.

The Council Of Elrond. From 00:53 to 01.00 not included. From 02:55 the sole flute is different from the one heard in the ost.

The Ring Goes South. From 00:00 to 00:45 it’s a different version from the ost.

Lothlorien. “Lament For Gandalf” is different from the ost.

The Great River. From 00:00 to 01:25 not included.

Amon Hen. From 02:37 to 02:47 not included.

The Breaking Of The fellowship. From 07:02 to 07:20 not included.

May It Be. This is the film version. Softer than that of the ost; and doesn’t include the synth choir, which is something better.

I don't know about the missing music from the scenes mentioned above but i know for a fact that the music from the extended cut was included because in the theatrical version there is no scene where bilbo thinks that he has lost his ring and he desperately looks for it only to find it in his pocket. the music from that scene is in this complete recordings box. just a note.

in adition to the comentary about the incomplete music i add this: this is no t the complete score because this set don´t have the music for the 45 minutes of movie in the extended cut of the fellowship of the ring in DVD so this is the complete score for the cvut in the theaters not the cut from the DVD

Thank you so much for posting about this! You are absolutely right. I'd also like to add that the arrangement of Aniron within "The Council Of Elrond" track on the original release is very different than on this release. Enya's vocals are much louder on the original sountrack version and, as you pointed out, the new version also shortens her solo slightly. This is a very annoying subtlety for those of us with an ear for such things. It really takes you out of a piece of music when you notice something missing or something added that shouldn't be there. I first noticed something strange with this release with "May It Be". I definitely noticed that the choir was missing. On the other hand, I'm very thankful to now have the film version of the track. It's also worth noting that the new version is the only self-contained verison of the song available (without orchestration bookending it). Still, I have decided to keep my old soundtrack as well. Please continue to educate people about this and also, please post similar lists for the two sequels' complete recordings releases should it be necessary. I, for one, am listening.
