    To see the differences? The Ultimate edition TPM soundtrack is far different from the regular TPM soundtrack is it not?

    Sure, but it's not like there's anything missing from the EEs that the regular edition has.

    The Prologue theatrical FOTR track is very different than what ended up in the film.

    Is one track really worth the extra cash, though?

    EE's definitely have the better music when it comes to the LOTR franchise. ROTK especially -- the tracks for both Theodin's and Aragorn's epic speech/charges were either missing or woefully watered down for the regular OST.

    *Complete Recordings

    I agree, but not everyone might want to spend $180 versus $30-$50 to sift through ten hours of music to find sparse tracks like that. Still quality products though.

    Something odd. I immediately went to AmazonMP3 and iTunes to see what their prices for the trilogy are. Weirdly enough both of them only have the ROTK complete recording, and OSTs for both of the other films.

    I could swear all 3 LOTR scores used to be available from iTunes. Anyway, ROTK is 24 dollars on both. So in the hypothetical event of the other two being there, it'd be 72 dollars, not 180. :p

    Yeah I was wondering about the EE. There only being ROTK on i-tunes. Have to settle for regular for FOTR and TTT

    I'd just look for the CDs in a 'used-very good' state and rip them TBH. If you really feel a need to listen to all ten hours, anyway. :p

    Only ROTK was officially released as a download.

    Anybody who DOES by all three complete recordings should look at getting this book: http://www.amazon.com/Music-Lord-Rings-Films-Comprehensive/dp/0739071572/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1350722652&sr=8-1&keywords=The music of the Lord of the Rings it also has an extra CD of extra tracks, different takes and mock ups. Its a very interesting read and very informative for anybody who wants to know more about the music side of film making. I just wish we could get an equivalent book for Star Wars :p

    EDIT: Not sure how much of a background in music you would need to read said book however. I have one but I'm no musicologist.

    They're supposedly working on a 'music of star wars' book, iirc.

    John Williams is awesome. He should do the Hobbit soundtrack.^:)^

    No he shouldn't.

    To extrapolate: A film series, barring death or violent disagreement, should always maintain the same composer. Shore does a good job with LOTR and The Hobbit should remain his.

    Agreed. Also John Williams style of scoring wouldn't fit well in the Tolkien universe. Howard Shore was THE man for the job!

    I wonder what the difference between the special edition and the regular edition is. They both appear to have 2 CDs.
