    Great music, fine (well, adequate) performance from the vocalist, but it sure doesn\'t sound like the \'Gollem\' that was being tortured and screaming \'Bagguns\' almost unintelligibly.

    I hope this doesn\'t imply that Two Towers is going to have \'songs\' as part of the soundtrack. What\'s next, lines of dancing Orckettes? A duet with Frodo and Sam singing \'I got the Misery in Mordor Blues\' or \'You\'re getting to be a Hobbit with me\'?

    Sorry, I dislike \'songs\' in soundtracks that aren\'t from actual musicals (which will probably be next - Andrew Lloyd Weber\'s Lloyd of the Rings...)

    Think I\'m kidding? Look what Disney did with (to) Stevenson [img]images/icons/rolleyes.gif[/img]

    thesoundsmith and others: Guess you did not read the books. You are in luck then, because in the books they were always breaking into songs and poetry.
    No dancing though.

    It\'s been so many years, I\'d forgotten-you\'re right, Doyle. But I still say Torini does NOT sound like Gollum. More like Samwise\'s would-be girlfriend back in Hobbiton. And when Gandalf is singing to himself in the opening scene, he does NOT even have a small orchestra behind him.

    I really would hate to see LOTR degenerate into a pop star songfest.

    Good Gollum, miss Mollum...

    Doesnīt this music sound very much like the saddest Bond-Theme ever ? [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

    Naah-then it would have to be in \"D minor-the saddest of all keys...\"

    Baggins - James Baggins...

    incidentally, does anyone know the name of the track played during the preview? the really majestic piece w/ the horns & trumpets up front? Really cool piece. they had it in The Fellowship but it was a slower tempo I think.
