Music is one of the most powerful forces that we have control over, in my opinion. We can shape it and form it into a symphony that can take the listener on an epic, emotional adventure without leaving their seat. It’s more powerful, in my eyes, than both books and movies together. It is a movies score than makes the movie impact you, whether you notice it or not. And I think Howard Shore is an excellent example of a skillful music writer. You don’t have to listen to the whole thing, but at least listen through the Shire music. It’s lovely.
