An excellent soundtrack!,
This review is from: Lord of The Rings: The Two Towers (Audio CD)
To any Lord of the Rings fans out there that haven't already got this soundtrack (or the first one for that matter) - what are you waiting for, buy it!
When I listened to the soundtrack for the first time after watching the film, the scenes fitted into place incredibly well. Each group of people (or other middle-earthly creatures) seem to have their own recurring themes - be it the Uruk-hai, Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli, Gollum, the Elves or the Rohan. Because of this, some of the themes are similar to those of the Fellowship's soundtrack, but I feel that being a trilogy with the same characters throughout, this is to be expected.
Having said that, each theme has come with variations - such as the battle themes at Helm's Deep and 'Forth Eorlingas' (which amazingly seemed to incorporate the themes from the elves, Uruk-hai, Rohan, and Aragorn etc all into one!)
I loved Gollum's Song sung by Emiliana Torrini at the end of the soundtrack and having listened to it at the end of the film (credits) I feel that it ended both the film and the soundtrack on an eerie note of anticipation.
I can't wait for the The Return of the King to come out, and would like to say that Howard Shore has done an excellent job in writing the score for the Two Towers - well done!!!
