Rather than buying the standard edition of The Hobbit AUJ soundtrack I chose to purchase the special 2 disk edition because I knew I will be getting more bang for my buck and it didn't disappoint. The cover is of a book like material I like the feel and look of. The artwork within brings a smile to the face of this Lord of the Rings fan. Above all is the musical mastery of Howard Shore. Although the story takes place in a less dire time in the history of Middle - Earth the music still has the flavour we've come to know and enjoy with some dwarfish themes mixed in. I recommeded this to the Lord of the Rings fans out there, fans of Howard Shore's work and coinsures of fine music along with fans of classical music.

Beautifully composed and orchestrated incidental music from the movie 'The Hobbit'. Great sound quality, as is usually expected for CD recordings. You'll enjoy this in your collection of movie music.

The only reason I'm giving this a 4/5 is because the inside booklet fell out of the CD case as soon as I opened it. I guess it wasn't properly stapled in, which is slightly disappointing, but the songs still synced without a hitch so I have no complaints otherwise. I'd recommend this to any fan of The Hobbit movies, and hopefully my shipment's mishap won't discourage anyone from buying!
