I am guessing that just about everyone visiting this board is very excited about LOTR, and if not that, has at least heard tha the movie's coming out and seen the trailers. Anyways, I LOVE the music from the trailers! For the first two teaser trailers, I wasn't very impressed at all. All I kept hearing was that main choral theme as the screen showed a huge army moving across the land. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely LOVE this theme, I cant' get it out of my head most times, but I needed more variety of LOTR music. Then came the first real "trailer". The music was mostly the same until the very end of the trailer as all the different quick shots flash by and we see 7 black riders chasing a girl on a white horse. Uh, it sorta sounds like: "EEEEEEeeeee... HAW!...eeeeeeeeeeeEEEE...HAW! HAW!..." Does anyone know what I'm talking about? Anyways, now I was *really* starting to like LOTR music after hearing the first trailer's finale- but it was still just that blaring, climatic rushing choral music and I wanted to see if the LOTR music would also succeed in a more subtle way. Finally, I saw the second real "trailer". Now *THIS* had some good music. -The first music in this 2nd trailer that caught my ear was when the text says "Fate has chosen him" and it shows that council of (er, forgot his name). Boromir says "You have my sword", Legolas "You have my bow", Gimli "And my axe!" Anyways, it's just a quiet, sort of haunting choral piece with drums in the background- very cool. -Secondly, the text says "Evil will hunt them". Then someone says "The enemy has many spies. Birds..." ect. This time, it's that main theme (as I call it) from the first two trailers (you know the blaring choral piece) but this time, it's subtle and played by lower string instruments. Good, looks like this theme can be used as loud and inspiring as well as quietly and foreboding. Me like. -Then, at the end of the trailer, the "main theme" is played again in all it's epic and choral brilliance! LOVE IT! So, those are my thoughts on LOTR. This is the soundtrack I am looking forward too more than any other in a long time (excepting TPM and soon ATOC)- what about you?
