AWESOME MISSING MUSIC   Monday, August 2, 2004 (12:06 p.m.) 

First off I hope that an extended version is soon released along with the 9 disc they promised so that the comments I am about to say are put to rest.
Second- the missing stuff.
-During the reforging of Narsil in the movie there is a great and powerful first statement of the Gondor theme. People complain there wasn't enough of the Gondorian theme in the CD and I disagree but that first statement we hear in the movie would have been awesome to hear in the soundtrack.
-THE LIGHTING OF THE BEACONS! This music is in the soundtrack, and is absolutely jaw dropping, but is changed in the movie!! The chord progression is completely different! Its effective yes, but not as breathtaking as the soundtrack version. It seems the brass overrides the insane picking of the strings in the movie, and sometimes almost sounds not in harmony.
-The awesome statement of the Sauron theme that is desperately needed in the soundtrack. Its heard when Grond is hammering at Minas Tirith's gate, but never heard in the CD, very dissapointing. But at least we had Minas Morgul to remind us of the terror filled Sauron theme although altered severely.
-THE RIDE OF THE ROHIRRIM! What a dissapointment this was on the soundtrack. It was not the ride, but the pre-ride! Yes we hear the beginning of it and ending in "The Fields of Pelennor" but never the in between which is where we hear the Rohan statement again pronounced with the Hardanger fiddle so emotionally as they charge.
-Aragorn coming to Minas Tirith! We hear another great statement of the Gondor theme as he begins attack in the movie, but never in the soundtrack. This symbolizes him first of all as king and entering his city as it plays when he attacks. Also the amazing action piece heard when Legolas takes the Mumakil down is something I would definetly love to hear on the upcoming discs.

If I missed anything let me know.

I was gutted when I got the DVD's and noticed the beacon's soundtrack was different to the movie

There are a couple of others, as you quite rightly pointed out, and that's annoying me also.
On one of the commentary tracks, Peter J mentions people can edit the film into its chronological order these days at home. Quite an interesting idea, but I am considering editing the soundtrack, mixing in the missing themes and burning back out to DVD

The beacons bit really hacked me off, its nowhere near as impressive in the movie - why was this changed I wonder? its not just a different mix or levels, its a different arrangement. odd.

Q.

Yes,I want that music at the black gate too.
It's very cool.
But the song The fields of the Pelennor sounds different on the cd.The end of that song is different

Did they ever release that 9-disc set? I haven't seen it promoted in any of the places I'd expect (Amazon, ads on this site, the soundtrack's website).

Just wanted to ask if the nine disc set has come out yet because I agree that "the ride of the rohirrim" should be recorded in full and placed on the soundtrack as it is a good statement and the music is emotional which is awesome. Sets you up for what is coming next as they go to battle. Very good
