A beautiful and magical accompaniment to Lord of the Rings,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Lord of the Rings - The Fellowship of the Ring (Audio CD)
Unlike many film soundtracks, which can sound repetitive and disjointed, Howard Shore's score for The Fellowship of the Ring is a varied and flowing piece of music. It is a joy to listen to. Enya's vocals are always beautiful, but to hear her singing in Elvish is something else entirely! From the light and folky Hobbit music, to the crashing, crushing darkness of the mines of Moria, to the ethereal, other-worldly chanting of Lothlorien, this album is captivating from beginning to end. I didn't think I could *be* any more excited about seeing the film, but this soundtrack proved me wrong.
