That's NOT the "limited edition"...

That's NOT the "limited edition"...   Wednesday, November 21, 2001 (9:41 p.m.) 

I liked your review of the score itself, and I agree wholeheartedly about Shore's incredible work. But I think you've mistaken the "regular" CD release, which does (annoyingly) have multiple covers, for the actual limited edition release. My copy of the limited edition came in a red "leather-like" cover, which contains a book of artwork different from what's included in the regular release.
Check out http://www.velocity.net/~sirtoby/lotr1.jpg to see the outside cover, and http://www.velocity.net/~sirtoby/lotr2.jpg to see the insert booklet.
There is no "character card" insert of any kind. I still deplore the record label's release of multiple covers for the regular release, but the limited edition really is something different. My weblink also contained no advertisements, just a link to the special content, although it did still ask for my email. My guess is that the weblink on the regular release includes an ad for the limited edition release.
But enough about the packaging! This score is AMAZING, no matter what edition you own!!!

You may be right, but ALL of them say "limited edition". Even the regular releases, with all those stupid different covers, all have a sticker that says they have the limited edition content.

How is anyone supposed to know if it is or not when they all say "limited edition" someplace on their outer sides? Filmtracks is right- They really messed up these CDs!

So they're all mistaken... there's nothing like a "special edition" mentioned anywhere on my CD.

It should say it on a sticker on the wrapping. The sticker also has Enya's name in bold letters on it. Other things different about the "limited" leather edition is that it has different cd art. The ring is blurry with no ring letters on it, whereas the multiple cover cd's have a clear image where the letters can be read. I think the worst tragidy about these cd's is that the movie is 3 hours long. Meaning that 2 hours of music was cut but will be most likely be realesed later on an ultra limited special edition cd, with varient covers of course and a different enya trading card.

HAHA LOL another Enya trading card. WONDERFUL! I CANT WAIT!! HAHAHA
I cant believe they would put that in there. With the different covers and the Enya card, its so obviously a cheap ploy to get people to part with all thier money that it makes me sick.
Im glad the reviewer took so much time blasting Reprise for this.

Well, I was rather disappointed that I dropped $30 for just a leather case. Still, the fact that the score is only an hour long proves nothing. I've seen composers write next to nothing for a score and never have it released! Look at Jerry Goldsmith's score to Gremlins, what is it? 20 minutes? Just because the movie is three hours, doesn't nessessarily mean that there's three hours of music.
