Back in print! The fabulous soundtrack to the movie trilogy ‘The Lord of the Rings’ in 5.1 surround sound.
The Lord of the Rings needs no introduction. As part of ‘The Complete Recordings’ sets you get a DVD-Audio with Howard Shore’s grand score in 5.1 surround sound.
It’s a classic approach to surround sound, something I like to call enhanced stereo. You get the main sound from the left and right speaker, some support (and the occasional solo instrument) in the center and ambience in the surrounds. Despite this conservative approach the discs sound great and immerse the listener just like in a concert hall.
I actually spent a lot of money on part 3 ‘The Return of the King’, because I missed the release date and it was out of print fast. Fortunately they’re in print again and I can only recommend these sets to any LotR and surround sound fan.
Hopefully we can get ready for a similar release for the Hobbit films
