I carefully read this lengthy review with much interest. I enjoyed it till the part of the enhanced CD. After all, what's the problem. We did not buy the CD for the special features but for Howard Shore's score only. As for Enya's "intrusion", I really like her two appearances, especially the final track, which incredibly sounds like the rest of the album. At the end, isn't that Shore's music?? Wasn't Howard Shore involved in that song somewhat?
And I cannot be disappointed by the magic highly presented in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. Williams outdid himself on that one. His most brilliant effort since Hook. And really, I cannot compare both Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings scores. It would amount to comparing apples and oranges.
