Who cares about the damn chords?

Why are you fixating on the chord progressions of the choir? Personally, I think they are great. I don't know all the names of the chords, like major 7ths, and minor 3rds changing to majors etc., but I can enjoy the score anyway. What about the other parts of the score? The gentle but impressive buildup in the mines of Moria (Journey in the Dark)? The sorrowful section at the end of The Bridge Of Kazad-Dum? The elvish music, which sounds strange, and yet like ethnic music of a sort? The orthanc music? The Breaking of The Fellowship? The ethereal Rivendell music? The brass, heroic theme for the fellowsip? The hobbit music?

I could go on like this.

If you think the chords are not worthy of big-chord people like Wagner and Rachmaninoff, fine. But the cd is certainly not bland and boring THROUGHOUT.
