The Hobbit [2Cd] (Special Edition) - Howard Shore

WaterTower Music has announced the release of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Original Motion Picture Soundtrack at all retailers on December 11th. The soundtrack will be available both digitally and as a 2 CD set. A Special Edition of the soundtrack featuring six exclusive bonus tracks, seven extended score cues, and deluxe liner notes will also be available December 11. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey features original score by Academy Award® winner Howard Shore recorded at famed Abbey Road studios by the London Philharmonic Orchestra. Additionally it includes an original song entitled “Song of the Lonely Mountain,” written and performed by Neil Finn (Crowded House). The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, the first of a trilogy of films from Oscar-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson (The Lord of the Rings Trilogy), will be released in the U.S. on December 14, 2012.

5/5 With memorable themes that intertwine some new ideas in the first of three scores... if you are a fan of Lord of the Rings... well then, you will be a fan of this. Now there are two versions of this score, which doesn't really make that much sense because there are only about ten to twelve minutes difference between them. I recommend the Special Edition to get all the parts and pieces.

We have all three LOTR soundtracks and I'm sure this one will rock as well.
