Missing Music

All credit to Howard Shore,for scoring this sublime and wonderfully magical piece that will have a lasting effect for many many years to come.However just like they did with the John Williams score for the Star Wars Trilogy,a fair amount of music has been left out of this release,including one of the main central themes that runs throughout the film,such as in the prologue,and when Gandalf speaks about the "One Ring" to Frodo.You do hear it at the end of the cue,"The River" when in the film they pass the giant statues of the Kings,but it's very vibrant and enigmatic,unlike earlier when it is calm and haunting,moreover moving and tender.Im not having a go,i sincerely hope they release a true "Special Version" of the score as they did with the Star Wars Trilogy,but it just annoys me when you see a film as special as this one,that when you buy the score,music always in most cases seems to be missing.Im sure Howard Shore would like to see a "Special Version",so that we could fully experience the films score to the fullest and greatest extent.A beautifull score to a wonderous and special film !
