About this deal

It includes two original songs written and performed by Enya: “May It Be” and “Aníron (Theme for Aragorn and Arwen). And sure, the booklet is a little thin, but the music is incredible, the presentation is tasteful, the vinyl is flat and (mostly) silent and you get to own three double albums collected in a relatively compact and convenient box! Copyrights and trademarks for the books, films, articles, and other promotional materials are held by their respective owners and their use is allowed under the fair use clause of the Copyright Law.

I'm sure Waxwork Records and Mondo are sick to death of my tweets and comments over these years asking "When will you be releasing this!One thing to be aware of however, is that discs 1, 2 and 3 are normal cds and will play on any player. R. Tolkien's stunning novels and their film adaptations have had a profound impact on my imagination for nearly my entire life," McCreary said. Hearing these tracks in my living room alone make me feel transported within Middle-earth itself from the peaceful harmony of the Shire, to the eeriness of Bree to the darkness of Moria and Isengard to the tranquil wonder that is Rivendell. It won the Academy Award for Best Original Score, as well as the Grammy for Best Score Soundtrack Album.

The Lord of the Rings is one of most successful trilogies in film history earning 17 Academy Awards ® including three for its music.Every record is shipped in original factory-applied shrink wrap and has never been touched by human hands. The plethora of unreleased material on this beautifully packaged edition is mouth-watering at the least, and the sonic dynamic achieved on the surround sound DVD of the entire 180-minute score is simply astonishing. In addition you get a a section of the Middle Earth map which means you will be getting other sections with the next releases. The LPs also look much thicker than the standard ones: this additional thickness should prevent warping with time.

An epic film score receives epic treatment with The Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring/Complete Recordings. Shore uses an elaborate leitmotif technique (where musical themes are associated with specific characters or ideas, and are developed across the entire series) to hold the sprawling tale together.

The original releases of the soundtracks only contained the highlights, but this is the edition to get if you are a fan. Following the recent deluxe sets that featured The Complete Recording from each film, Rhino will introduce a limited-edition set that includes the original soundtracks to all three films. Breathtaking and majestic, the 2001 Oscar and Grammy winning score composed by Howard Shore also includes Enya's Oscar nominated 'May It Be'. This review is not about the quality of the CR soundtrack itself (which has been out for a while now) or the sound quality of the LP.
