Beethoven and Bach are two different composers. Are you saying I shouldn't compare them? Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings are two of the most popular fantasy books in the world, made into movies and released within a month of each other. They ARE comparable, because they are both fantasy films. Granted, it might be more applicable to compare the LOTR soundtrack to that of say, Braveheart or Gladiator, since they have all have a a sort of historial epic scope, but as "competing" fantasy films, HP and LOTR can be compared musically.
