"Cold be hand and heart and bone. Cold be travelers far from home" is a twist on a song that a barrow wight gave in _The Fellowship of the Ring_. <p> I found it... <p> "Cold be hand and heart and bone, and cold be sleep under stone: never more to wake on stony bed, never, till the Sun fails and the Moon is dead. In the black wind the stars shall die, and still on gold here let them lie, till the Dark Lord lifts his hand over dead sea and withered land.

Yeah, when he asked him if he FANTASIZED the music for The Hobbit, and Shore laughed, I wonder if he was laughing at the question.
Nov. 15, 2006, 7:33 p.m. CST
I'll buy this.

"It’s easily one of the more notable commercial releases in the history of film music." Says you.

...you would have to be a huge LOTR fan to plunk down 75 bucks for this set, as well done as it probably is.

Hahahaha...fuck, we need to gert that Hobit movie out now before important characters die. And another subject, who is seriously going to buy this? This has to cost like $35-$50. Guess if you need a soundtrack for your epic D+D battles. Nerds.

all the original stuff like that got cut out are back in the album and it's a treat. especially on the "Gandalf the White" track and the last 58 secs. of the "Nazgul Attack" cue. hope there's a future DVD release that will have all the music back in place. and dammit scorekeeper when will you review it

The complete recording for Fellowship is great. I can't wait for TT and ROTK.
Nov. 15, 2006, 11:09 p.m. CST
I'd love to have all of the music for these movies, but I just can't buy CDs anymore. iTunes hath ruined me. There has to be someone that I know that is an even bigger LOTR geek than I am that would buy this and burn copies for me. Hmmm...

...by far the best contributer to this site. Long may he continue to take this as seriously as he does. And the lord of the rings music truly is the greatest score ever written.

I know ScoreKeeper.... I went to high school with ScoreKeeper.... I was the best man at his wedding.... Yes, indeed, the ScoreKeeper is one lucky bastard.....

but I have one little tiny nitpick; why the hell doesn't the package colors match the color of the extended en now limited edition releases? It is fellowship green, towers red, king blue. Now the fellowship comes out and it's red. Now we get the towers and it's blue. I mean, King will be green then? Why? This looks so stupid on my shelf. It's bitching, but it annoys me. Such a superb release and then the colors doesn't match the dvd releases. Either they should have sticked with red for all the complete recordings or they should have made the colors match with there dvd releases.

He hardly understood LotR, and it sounds like he understands The Hobbit even less.

"Do you have any comments on King Kong05?" Shore: "Kong05 was a disappointing film and I'm happy in retrospect to have had nothing to do with it." (I made that up, but it's my sentiments, and probably Shore's as well.) Now, if PJ does the Hobbit, which I agree is a dubious proposition, considering his very disappointing treatment of Kong, I just hope PJ does not turn it into a satirical lampoon like he did Kong05, and I hope PJ would have the good sense to keep Shore on as the composer AND OBEY ALL OF SHORE's ARTISTIC IDEAS. I recall PJ dumped Shore from Kong05 due to artisit differences; well we now can see that Shore probably had better artistic ideas for Kong05 than PJ did. So on the Hobbit, PJ must obey Shore on all artisitic ideas. And Shore should fire PJ from the Hobbit two weeks before the deadline and bring on a different Director.

LOTR had an amazing, moving, non-gimmicky score that aided the film, rather than taking it over. Kudos to Shore for doing what a composer must do: Make a movie complete.

Can you listen to it like it's a soundtrack? In other words, do the tracks follow one another like the 1-disc soundtrack, or do they have several tracks in a row of different music from the same scene?
Nov. 16, 2006, 6:14 p.m. CST
Yes, all the tracks on the set are in the order they are heard (or would be heard, in the case of unused cues) in the film. Ditto with the FOTR set. These sets are utterly magnificent, and worth every damn penny.
Nov. 16, 2006, 8:06 p.m. CST
and zero corpse do yourself a favor and either find out what really happened on spider-man 2 in regards to the music or shut up. go listen to hans zimmer copy paste his music

mortsleam-If it helps, the complete recordings ARE available on iTunes for only $40. It's not as cheap as getting a burned copy from a friend but it's far more legal. Evil Hobbit-I agree with your complaint about the color discrepencies from the DVD box sets. It is an ultra picky thing but hey, consistency would've been nice.
