    1. This 5 star rating is a combined rating for this book and the Lord of the Rings Complete Recordings CDs, which are three sets comprising a total of 10 discs. I'd really recommend owning the CDs alongside this book.I can't imagine this book being as good if you didn't own those CDs, as most of its content is a track-by-track musical analysis of the scores. You could try reading the book while watching the movies but the score isn't always up front in the soundtrack, and you might be distracted by [...]

    2. For serious fans of Shore's LotR music score. Five stars aren't enough for this book ~ I give it a galaxy of stars. Without doubt the best book I've added to my Tolkien library this year, maybe ever.Under the slipcover, the book is bound in a black cloth cover with the elvish ring inscription embossed in gold. It's basically divided into two parts: Description of the major themes with musical examples, then a mavelously descriptive annotation of the scores for each of the three films. The rariti [...]

    3. The greatest film score ever written gets a deep-dive. After 400 pages and nearly four years, I finally made my way through this dense, incredible volume (while simultaneously listening to the complete recordings, naturally.) I now feel I understand about 1/1000th of this masterpiece.

    4. Um verdadeiro tratado sobre a banda sonora de uma das sagas mais fascinantes de sempre.O entendimento da construção dos motivos musicais e a explicação da interligação dos temas à narrativa tornarão a experiência de ver 'O Senhor dos Anéis' numa experiência ainda mais especial.Para os aficionados pelos filmes e para os amantes da Música em geral !

    5. A beautiful book, one of my favorites. Douglas Adams is such a pleasant, gifted writer, (with a talent for describing music), Howard Shore composed the greatest film score of all time, and there's a CD with rare/bonus tracks. How much more can you ask for?

    6. The Music of Lord of the Rings is a wonderful, in-depth look at the score from the amazing film trilogy. Adams presents a fascinating journey through the themes and leitmotifs in the score and this is a gorgeous companion book for fans of the films.One word of caution though - to fully appreciate this book, I would suggest at least an intermediate understanding of music theory is required as Adams goes into some depth and it would not mean anything to non-musicians who are unfamiliar with the to [...]

    7. Fans of Lord of the Rings and film music alike will enjoy this in-depth analysis of Howard Shore's music for the LOTR movies. Adams begins by presenting all the various themes used in the score, then describes how Shore weaves them all together in the films going through each movie from beginning to end. The accompanying demos/rarities CD has some interesting pieces, as well as a conversation between the composer and the author.

    8. I found it quite an interesting read, even if I didn't understand most of the musical terminology. Listening to the soundtrack while reading really helped too.

    9. Great for fans of the LOTR movies who happen to be serious music lovers. Interesting analysis of the LOTR soundtrack.
