if you have ever heard the dissapointing "Revenge of the Sith" from Star Wars Episode III you would revise your opinion and see absolutly nothing wrong with this score. If you felt something was missing from this brilliant score then you are going to shoot yourself, when you hear what John Williams has done. None(!!!!) and I mean not a single theme from the new trilogy is used in the final track (instead he uses all the well loved old themes from a New Hope) and he uses the same music for Padme's Desitiny as he did for the funeral of Qui-Gon. BTW if you expect the full glory of the Death March - forget it. It reprises only twice (once very short and another time lengthier in Anakin vs Obi-Wan but that's it).
Howard Shore's score on the other hand is vibrant, and it really tries to use every important theme from all three movies! As far as I am concered the LotR scores surpass any other epic score I have heard.
