This is one of those film scores - and they don't come very often - when you feel like, oh I don't know, jumping up and beheading an Orc! Only kiddin'. In truth, Howard Shore goes 'The Fellowship of the Ring' score one better by delving deeper into the multi-textured realms of Middle-earth. "The Riders of Rohan" and "The King of the Golden Hall" have a very elegaic, Norse feel to them, thanks in part to the masterful use of the violin. "The Uruk-Hai" is a reprise of the 'Fellowship Heroes' theme, as well as the themes for Isengard and Mordor. "Evenstar" and "Breath of Life" have just such an all-round breathtaking feel to them; the singers' voices are enchanting. "The Hornburg" is an excellent use of percussion and builds up the tension to the start of the battle for the survival of Rohan at Helm's Deep. "Forth Eorlingas" and "Isengard Unleashed" have some beautiful vocal parts. And the final track - "Gollum's Song" - is a haunting song performed by Emiliana Torrini that'll reverberate inside your head for weeks on end. This is masterclass.

Having loved the soundtrack for Fellowship of the Ring, I couldn't imagine that Mr. Shore could have created a soundtrack for Two Towers that would have matched or superceded the first. The music for Two Towers is far more sophisticated, dark. exploratory, vocal in surprising spots, an auditory surprise. Living in a car, as I seem to do lately, and listening to a soundtrack is not the recommended venue, and it took some dedicated listening to fully appreciate the music, which stands alone. It hearkens back to some of the original themes, develops new ones for Rohan and uses choral music in a truly wonderful manner. The music at the peak of the battle at Helms's Deep and during the destruction of Isengard is truly grand, for instance, and truly expresses in a musical form the events that Tolkien describes. Even my husband, who only likes classical music, now recognizes the soundtrack and comments appreciatively. It's a fabulous creation and I can only hope and anticipate that Return of the King will surpass this!

Could one be more pleased with the outcome of Howard Shore's score for 'The Two Towers'? No. It is one of the most astonishing, and compelling music scores of all time. The Two Towers is brought to life with the power of Shores music talent. In a way no other composer could have done. Not only is is dark, rich, compelling, and truthful, but faithful to the text of Tolkien's written word. Shore is both a genius, and a master of what he likes to do best. Turn stories into nothing but music.

im a little dissapointed with this soundtrack. i have listened to it maybe 4 times through, and right after i hear it, i forget all about it. The first soundtrack was amazing, but this one lacks surprise, and the music will make you fall asleep. "Gollums Song" sounds week and depressing. the voice is to high and tiring. the other vocals are okay, but i liked how on the last one they had 3 vocals, and enya was there. I think that howard shore could have done much better.

This soundtrack is the best representation of the movie's atmosphere...it's dark, somewhat creepy but above all magical, just like the movie.

I really give this piece of work so much honor and appreciation, because they are so talented and they make the music touch your heart. It also goes with the movies right. It brought me to tears a couple times while watching the movie, and while just listening to it on cd. I LOVE this thanks very much indeed!!#1 fan of LOTR films and sountrack

Howard Shore has outdone himself again. The songs flow wonderfully together and there is a much darker theme than there was in Fellowship. The vocals are outstanding! I highly recommend this to any LOTR fan!

Orchestral pieces in this incredible work were mostly centered around an all-alluring darkness, which is not what most like to hear on a daily basis. Although not entirely composed of loud, fear inducing material, it also contained a share of quiet, and thoughtful songs to ponder over. And, if one sets to thinking of the mood of these songs, a powerful, controlling sound is sensed, striking the listener with a certain awe-inspiring element. All together a wonderful selection of music, and worth the while of buying, this is a soundtrack should be added to your personal collection.

Howard Shore once again delivers a magnificent and breathtaking work of art in the Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers soundtrack. Only he could really match and produce music that is equal to the stunning job that Peter Jackson did on the movie. Shore brought together elements of The Fellowship of the Ring with a the sinister plot and epic thrills of the Two Towers to make a unique and original sound. Using new voices like Sheila Chandra (Breath of Life) and Isabel Bayrakdarian (Evenstar) and bringing back talented vocalists like Elizabeth Fraser (Isengard Unleased), Shore created an exciting collection that will not soon be forgotten. Shore's use of internationl instruments from places like India, Australia, and Africa, make unique sounds to entice and intrigue listeners of all ages. The Two Towers soundtrack is truly a work of art.

This is an excellent piece of music. all the songs are really grand. if you wanted the song when the elves march to Helm's Deep...then you better get it because it is in track 15. as well as Arwen's farewell song. I purchased mine a month ago, and i still love hearing the tunes . especially number 3, 8, 11, and 15! Great piece! you'll not be disappointed.

Absolutely amazing music so well constructed that your mind will create a fantasy world before your eyes! Such power and pasion is put into this collection of touching tracks on the Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers soundtrack.

Well, here is another awesome soundtrack for another great movie. Anyone who has not seen this movie, DO GO AND SEE IT! It's a mind-blowing experience from beginning to end. Good luck to Peter Jackson and the cast and crew @ the Golden Globes and the Academy Awards. And to the Academy: nominate Andy Serkis for Best Supporting Actor! Even though Gollum/Smeagol isn't a flesh and blood character, you have to admit that Mr. Serkis did a great job bringing the poor creature to life!

The Two Towers' score, by Howard Shore, is surprisingly good for a second-movie score. There's just enough new stuff mixed in with the old, familiar themes. I especially liked the Celtic- inspired Rohan theme- fits the Horse-lords perfectly. I'm a bit disappointed that Enya didn't return for Towers, but Emiliana Torrini really did a nice job with Gollum's Song.

What I liked about it was the powerful full orcastra scores, the pipes, the string solos and the beautiful vocals. My favorite track is #18, 'Samwise the Brave'. Second is 'The Evenstar', then 'The King of the Golden Hall', 'Foundations of Stone', and more! Unlike with the soundtrack of the first movie, where there were numorus tracks composed of 'bad guy music' - meaning, Nazgul and Orc themes, with not enough (in my opinion) of the 'Shire' theme and Elvish themes, this one has a nice interspertion of all the varities.

The music created by Howard Shore is adored by many fans. The many orchestras and soloists and choirs were magnificently beautiful in helping to create the path. Its like the journey never ended. You can always look back onto a particular time by listening to a piece of this music.
