4 stars After hearing this, I'm quite disappointed. This certainly isn't kind of music I normally listen to (or what I was expecting), but it's not even something new I can learn to like.Un/Fortunately (depends on you). First of all, while it's for some gentle, atmospheric and impressive in a quiet way of this word, it is dull and void for me. I can't find anything here to like. The best I can find there is to tolerate it, listen to it, but I'm not able to relate it, no chemical reaction between me and this music that I'm trying to understand here. I'm one of these fortunate young people (89) who read books before films were made. How glad I am for that, I still remember my feelings for the books, without seeing anything by Tolkien done in media (except one radio adaptation of Hobbit), old animated movie was quite unknown here. However, not just that this music doesn't fit to entire scheme of Middle-Earth, but I find it quite boring (most of the times) and don't like it at all. Lethal combination of few elements that forms final rating. Yet I'll give

3(-), because there are some pieces that justifies it. ...Elrond..., or ...Black Riders... and ...Rohan... to name some. They're far from being perfect, but they're good at least.
