5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful soundtrack, perfectly rounding off the trilogy, 23 Nov. 2003
This review is from: Lord of the Rings - The Return of the King (Audio CD)
The previous two soundtracks for Peter Jackson's trilogy adaptation og LOTR, have been brilliant pieces of music. The choice of Howard Shore to be the films' composer was a work of genius.
I expected this soundtrack, like I do the last film, to leave the others far behind, and I was not disappointed.
In a number of tracks we revisit the various themes we have met before, including the Rohirrim theme, and the Hobbit "Hym", each time in a new way. The overall theme of the music on the soundtrack is far more meloncholic, and bittersweet. Especially "The White Tree: The Steward of Gondor" which also featured a surprisingly good solo from Billy Boyd (Pippin).
"The Return Of The King" is a track which will remind listeners of "The Breaking of the Fellowship" from FOTR. This track almost ties up all of the various themes from the films, like the film will with the various plot threads.
Annie Lennox's "Into the West" is a beautiful, heart-touching song, far-surpassing the credit songs from the previous two filsm. It helps to enhance the emotions felt throughout the film, and especialy from the part of the story from whence it got it's title.
This soundtrack is perfect for any film fan, and a must-have for all Tolkien-fans. For new-comers to the films, and/or the music, I higly recommend this, as it sums up the entire trilogy of films.
