Let's ignore our differences and pick some good tracks!   Sunday, January 6, 2002 (2:08 p.m.) 

Hey, Lord of the Rings does have mixed reviews throughout the realm, but i'm sure we all can pick some tracks that stand out, whether we hate or love the overall score. Tracks that keep us listening to film music. personally I liked "Breaking of the Fellowship", "Concerning Hobbits" and "The Prophecy," which has a beautiful base in the background.

Re: Let's ignore our differences and pick some good tracks!   Sunday, January 6, 2002 (6:35 p.m.) 

I just got the CD about 3 days ago, and,

intially, my favorite tracks were:
Concerning Hobbits
Breaking of the Fellowship
"May it Be"
The Council of Elrond

After multiple hearings without pauses in between, I like these tracks even better:

Shadow of the Past
A Journey in the Dark
The Bridge of Khazad Dum
The Great River

The only track I cannot seem to grasp a liking for (yet) is Lothlorien

Well...a friend of mine was gracious enough to let my borrow his CD(I'm kinda broke)I particularly enjoyed these:
The Bridge of Khazad-Dum
A Knife in the Dark
The Black Rider(shares theme with A Knife in the Dark)
The Great River (note: I know I heard the theme at the beggining as well. I hope he develops it for The Two Towers. Mr. Shore is scoring it, right?)
The Breaking of the Fellowship(really heartbreaking folks)
The Prophecy(Really good, would be even better if I knew when in the movie it played- I only saw it once)
Hell, it almost makes a mockery of the Harry Potter score with all of its variations- even though HP is a quality score nonetheless.

Truthfully, I like them all. Two that people don't seem to mention but I enjoy are Amon Hen and Flight to the Ford.

Indeed...it's kinda strange, maybe it's just me, but the action music doesn't really stick with you the first listen, but after a while I found myself humming the opening bass notes of Amon Hen when i beat red lights!

I enjoyed the whole soundtrack... but I enjoy hearing it with the film more... ;P

My favorite cues that are on the cd would be:
Lothlorien (very haunting)
Khazaad Dum (the darker stuff and the "mourning of gandalf")
And, The Great River...

I don't enjoy the soundtracks as much unless I am watching them underscore the film. So I look at it more by themes. I really miss not hearing more of that theme at the end of the Great River (great theme located: 1:53-2:42 on the cue). I think its pretty much the only time it appears on the album... Concerning Hobbits was well written, sort of quirky. Oh yeah, Shadow of the Past I really enjoy because I can picture exactly what it is hitting off of. I have only seen the movie once so I'm not sure what all the cues are accenting.

That theme that is heard in the Great River was also in the beginning of the film, in the prologue. It did not appear on the CD I believe, but I distinctly remember it from the opening. Maybe it's perhaps I've seen it four times that helps me remember that and that....oh, God I need a life! j/k
I think it is sort of a legend/historic theme.

As for my favorite tracks, alas, I have not had time to listen to this cd all the way! I don't know, but I'm finding it difficult to sit through it all the way. I like the black riders theme which is used primarily in the first half of the film. I bought this CD before the movie came out, and it was really interesting as I was also reading the book for the first time. When I came to chapter in the book entitled "The Bridge of Khazaad Dum", I played the track that accompanied the film. (I played the different tracks as I read each chapter) I would have to say that after reading the chapter and hearing the music, tears were definitely swelling up. That part of the movie was the reason I wanted to see it. It fit perfectly, and I am extremely grateful for that. It's kind of unfortunate that I will be reading the Two Towers soon without the next score being released, but then again, it will be a new experience.

Another track I really liked was Many Meetings. I thought it mirrored the feeling of Rivendell's peaceful aura and serenity. And when it changes into the hobbit theme as he sees Bilbo sitting on the bench, writing his book; (sigh) shivers and an extra heart beat. Beautiful music.

Bridge of khazad dum.

After the "Back to the future" theme, possibly my most loved film cue.
