5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful music, wonderful show, 23 Dec. 2007
This review is from: The Lord Of The Rings (Audio CD)
I've seen the Lord of the Rings twice now and I thoroughly enjoyed the music. It's generally less like the usual "show tunes" you'd expect from a West End musical, using more folk-type songs to evoke a another-world-like middle earth.

And the result is very different and really very good. Particular stand-outs are "the cat and the moon", "Star Of Eärendil" and "Lothlórien" - and you can see all of these on the show's website currently if you want a flavour. The music is very involving, well performed and exciting.

Obviously if you're expecting Sondheim or subtlety (as I expect many of its critics did), you'll be disappointed, but if you want a dramatic score and songs, you could do far worse. It may be worth seeing the musical first if you can though!
