  1. What is your favorite end credits song from the LOTR and Hobbit films? My personal favorite is "Into The West". Such a perfect song to conclude the Middle-earth saga. A sad, yet hopeful piece masterfully performed by Annie Lennox.
  2. I know there has been some backlash against the large amount of polls created recently, but this is a poll that had to be made. Which film and score is your favorite from the epic The Lord of The Rings trilogy?
  3. As the title implies, I've been wondering for a while what instrument is used in "Minas Morgul" on the LOTR:ROTK soundtrack ("A Coronal of Silver and Gold" on the LOTR:ROTK complete recordings) to create the distinct pitch and sound of Sauron's theme in the track. The instrument produces a screaming, almost satanic sound that I haven't heard anywhere else in the music of LOTR. I've searched the internet looking for what instrument could've been used, but my search was to no avail. So yeah, it'd be great if someone could help me out on this certain topic. Thanks!
  4. So yeah, this is a topic I see debated occasionally on the forums, so I thought this could be a formal place to do so and share your opinion. I personally love the music for both series. John Williams' Star Wars scores are legitimate classics in the world of film scores, and are widely considered to be the gold standard for sci-fi/adventure soundtracks. On the other hand, Howard Shore's darker LOTR scores (the scores for the Hobbit trilogy included) are incredible as well, full of complex themes and motifs and are as influential to the fantasy genre as are Williams' Star Wars soundtracks to the sci-fi genre. Feel free to share your thoughts below, and please participate in the poll above!
