2 stars Songs of Middle Management - Inspired by the Money Being Made by The Lord of the Rings

This cynical collection, as others here have noted, is not an album of new songs, inspired by "The Lord of the Rings", but a cheap attempt by BMG (one of the most unimaginative of the record label conglomerates since the seventies) to cash in on the popularity of a famous movie series. They took a bunch of songs from a couple of Wakeman's lesser known albums, retitled the pieces, and issued it as this.

The songs are obviously Wakeman, and his solos are not bad (nowhere near his best, however). The compositions rarely and barely rise above the level of simple new age.

The best thing about the album is that it can be found in cutout bins for $1.99.

Not totally worthless, but don't pay much more than I did for it.
