I think it is because there are not much new music elements,but there are enough to maintain the interest of the listener.For example,the Celtic influence (Uillean Pipes) is used effectively with brasses,strings and a soft percussion in the scenes and tracks where the Riders Of Rohan are involved.There are some tracks written for Elves,most of them sound like religious music mixed with heart-breakingly sad string section and extremely beautiful choir.The choirs are even more beautiful than in LOTR - FOTR.And there are a handful of extremely good tracks written by using new composing techniques.The large orchestral tracks with strings,brasses,cymbal crashes and percussion,accompained by otherwordly choir which is religious,bombastic,heroic and relaxing at the same time are simply stunning.And of course,there are a handful of exciting action,relaxing,
dramatic,suspenseful and haunting tracks following the composition techniques that are used by Shore at the LOTR - FOTR soundtrack.Highly recommended.
