I think any music lover, and especially those who love classical, will want to take a look at this boxed set and The Fellowship of The Ring, Complete Recordings for the same reason. It is fabulous.

The boxed set, come in a square box that is roughly length of a hand. It opens with the DVD audio version on the left. A book placemarker over the remaining set to the right. There's a beautiful 43 and 45 page booklet, respectively (That is, Fellowhip, Two Towers-- in order) and not as noted as a 48-page. Nevertheless, it has some annotations about the orchestral construction and Mr. Shore's ideas on themes as it relates to the characters, places and events of the particular movie. There isn't a complete notation on all tracks. In the Two Towers booklet, 2nd to last page, Mr. Shore says more info can be sought from [...]

The Two Towers. (There are wonderful reviews of The Fellowship pieces already on the customer review page.) What I found in terms of themes is fewer than in Fellowship. The music, orchestration is coordinated with the film, but a lot more aggressive. This is not a bad thing. You can easily feel the story being told when as each track is playing-- no annotation necessary. I found Track 1 of disc 1, luring me in immediately. The opening theme is repeated periodically, but not as often as in Fellowship. Disc 1, according to the booklet, is Smeagol/ Gollum's descent. But any of the tracks as that same exalted beginning slowly (deteriorating?) to a slow, almost maudlin tempo nothing demonstates this more than track 7 or "The Banishment of Eomer".
