Forgot about Aragorn's/Gollum's theme? + mistakes in review   Sunday, November 30, 2003 (5:11 a.m.) 

Indeed the sound of the scores seems too washed/wet. The result is a heavy, lumpy feeling... and less individuality of performers. But heck...

I think there's too much whining about the lack of recurring themes (or the not so bold statements of them). What about the presence of Gollum's motif on 'A Storm is Coming', in somewhat disguised forms; first on flute and later on twisted around Sauron's theme (the reviewer didn't mention that theme too)? Of course I'm not certain this is really meant to be Gollum's theme, but it all seems very plausible (remember that the Smeagol/Deagol murder scene supposedly opens the film).

But the real gem of continuation can be found on 'Minas Thirith'. Remember the ascending horn motifs on 'Amon Hen' & 'Breath Of Life'? I think they represent Aragorn's theme (and I have good reason to do so). That music now merges with the beautiful Gondor theme on track 3 to forge that extremely powerful music there. It's the Return of the King motif... and it's one hell off a climax, that has it's origin, stunningly enough, in the council of Elrond scene and 'Amon Hen'. (Wagner... anyone?)

And I don't know where the heck this reviewer heard the Gondor theme in 'The Black Gate Opens' and 'Into The West'. I think I'll give the soundtrack another go though.

Isnt Gollums Theme the name of the song played during the credits at the end of Two Towers, sung by an Italian female artist.
