Why not compare them? They share the same fantasy grouping. They are the two biggest soundtrack albums of the season. There is debate about the "magic" in both of them. Would you rather see a comparison of Lord of the Rings and Spy Game?

Additional comment; It's about time that someone "told the story like it is" regarding the stupid commercializing of these soundtracks. I commend Filmtracks for tearing up Reprise Records for their insulting lack of respect for Shore's music in their advertising. Howard Shore deserves the trading card, not Enya.
