Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King - The Complete Recordings 4.8 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 11 reviews.

I am a HUGE fan of the Lord of the Rings and I am quite excited for this soundtrack to come out! I have been waiting for it for it since the Fellowship edition was released. I own both Complete Recordings for Fellowship and two Towers and they are astounding! The original-release soundtracks are good, but there is so much more great music that Howard Shore composed that those discs don't have. These are the ultimate editions of the soundtracks and are a must for any fan of Lord of the Rings.

I'm really a huge fan of lord of the rings, i love the music the movie and the novels. howard shore did a beatiful job with the music so did peter jackson which i would love for him to do the silmarillion. i cant wait for the cd to come out to the shelves. im looking foward to hear this one song where a woman sing in return of the king extended movie in the part of the movie in healing room after the pelenor fields. i know this cd would be worth every penny of it.

Liv Tyler's voice in "Houses of Healing" is amazing - I am so looking forward to having the actual recording of that song. Can't wait!!!!

For so long we have all waited for this... its soooo exciting! everyday i was checking the internet for its release date, and samples of the music" go to scorenotes.com to hear and amazing suite from all four cd's".from what i've heard "did we have any doubt in our minds???" it is brilliant, and i will probably faint when it actually comes. I am excpecting it friday, and am so ready to hear what howard shore has done, what was taken out, and for the little musicsal cues that i didn't notice on the dvd. this will be the best so far! :"

As my headline says, it's an outstanding soundtrack, one of the best. I have previewed the Two Towers soundtrack and the Fellowship of the Ring soundtrack and they are good too. I recommend the movies, and if you like to read then check out the books. I would give this soundtrack a ten out of ten if I could rate it. I highly recommend it and the other two also.
