If you want a better score, try hearing the masterpiece he wrote for David Cronenberg's Dead Ringers. He composed it about 13 years before LOTR, and it is one of the best scores he has ever written. Shore really displays his skills for writing tonal melodies in this one. I suggest you hear it for yourself; it's worth it. The best cues of the score are in the final ten minutes of the movie (tracks 19 and 20 on the Silva Screen CD).
