Review by Keith "MuzikMan" Hannaleck
4 stars out of 4

The classic fantasy tale "The Lord of The Rings" has been gaining popularity with new generations of admirers since the book was written in 1948. I find it hard to believe it has been that many years since the book was completed by the author J.R.R. Tolkien. With the recent release of the film the story has gained more momentum and popularity worldwide. Every great movie needs a soundtrack, and this movie has a fitting musical backdrop.

The beauty and majesty of an orchestra, conducted by Ralph Ferraro, directed by Ralph Bakshi, and produced by Saul Zaentz, is brought to life through the eyes of the film. It's not hard to imagine what kind of scene is being portrayed in the movie while listening to this moving and emotionally charged soundtrack. All those who may have enjoyed the film may not appreciate this soundtrack, as there are many younger people amongst the followers of the trilogy. This is not to say that there is not a younger generation that enjoys classical music, I would tend to think that a large majority of young adults and children would appreciate rock and rap more. All of the variables aside, this is a wonderful soundtrack album with an equally entertaining film that goes hand in hand with the music.
