About Gollum's "lack of continuation"

Quote from the review:

"The lack of continuity for Gollum is perhaps the trilogy's biggest musical weakness, for Shore's combination of motifs for the character in The Two Towers is so captivating."

I think you really need to stay focused on what your primary material is. Gollum's Song is merely an offspring of his primary material and can be considered a version of it that captures a particular side of the character. Just because it's called "Gollum's Song" and has lyrics doesn't mean it has to have significant effects on the material. The songs and the score aren't two different things; the songs are part of the score. Just like "May It Be" is an extension of the Elven material and "Into The West" an extension of Shire material, "Gollum's Song" is an extension of Gollum's music. It's just a theme in a different setting.
