Sorry man, though I appreciate most of your other reviews this one and its rating are clearly unjustified. Rosenman's music is in many aspects superior to Shore's efforts considering the advandgarde instrumentations and creative harmonic progressions throughout the score. Apart from that Rosenman's main theme really succeeds in capturing the LotR. I love this score and yes, it's very likely Rosenman's best! 5 of 5 stars!!
