"No new major theme" ?? / Expanded Scores   Wednesday, November 26, 2003 (6:00 a.m.) 

First let me state that this score is superb, and overall the review does it justice. But: I cannot understand the comments about there not being a new big theme. There is one: The Gondor theme. As heard in "Minas Tirith", "The White Tree" (and those are big, bombastic statements of that theme!), "The Steward of Gondor (solemnly and moanfully played by horn), and reprised somewhat subdued in "The Return of the King" (where it's shortly followed by a chilling moment of Viggo Mortensen (Aragorn) singing a historical verse of his kin at his coronation). BTW, this theme has been hinted at since FotR, where it can be heard by solo horn during Boromir's speech at the Council of Elrond.

"Someday, there will likely be expanded versions of all of these scores released to the public."

'Someday' is in about a year, Howard Shore has stated in an interview over at soundtrack.net that a complete set with all three scores in full, plus extra stuff, is in the works to come out in late 2004. This will contain roughly 12 hours of music on about 9 cds.

Where does it say there is no more new themes?? Did I miss something?

People sometimes forget to read the adjectives...   Wednesday, November 26, 2003 (7:52 a.m.)

Sometimes, fans read "no new really engrossing themes" and interpret that as "no new themes"...

Return of the King has one new impressive thematic development. There's a second one that is less enticing. The problem is that none of these new ideas holds the same magical power as the ideas from Two Towers, which is where the negative criticism of the new themes has its roots.

Nine disks? Holy ! I got what I wished for in spades! I just thought it would be cool do an extra disk with the music from the extra scenes on the DVD.
