Music is fabulous - pity about the shoddy packaging,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (Audio CD)
I've given this 5-stars, but there is a caveat to that, which is that the packaging is really disappointing. I had hoped that the sleeve would, at the very least, have been strong card but in reality it is very poor-quality and despite my being careful when removing the CDs it's already showing a small tear. On what is supposedly a deluxe version to be bought and cherished both by music-lovers and collectors you would have thought that the producers would have supplied a robust enough case to last a lifetime.
Now onto the music itself which is fabulous. There are many reminders of the original LOTR score here as you would expect - particularly around the Shire and Rivendell themes. Of the newer themes I particularly enjoyed Riddles in the Dark and also the inclusion of a couple of Tolkien's songs which were sadly removed from LOTR.
Overall a beautiful score - real food for the soul.

I don't want to sound too elfish but that's bound to happen when a dwarf uses his big fingers to play a CD... :o)

This dwarf's fingers aren't that big actually - more like a stubby little Hobbit's hands..

I have long thin piano fingers and still struggle to get the CDs out, the problem's not just limited to dwarves!
