This CD ranges from simple, down-homey feeling (Old Friends) to low and threatening (Misty Mountains) to excited (The Adventure Begins) and on from there. You can almost see the sweeping visuals, and you feel as if you can tell what is happening. Themes run throughout for the attentive listener to discover. I recommend listening to this after watching the movies, but even if you have not seen them you can still appreciate the music. I listened to this over, and over, and over again. Absolutely amazing music.

Taking both Hobbit CDs into play, this has more variation (like the Fellowship of the Ring in regards to the LOTR). I like the freshness of certain tracks and the revisiting of themes from the LOTR. I particularly enjoy the theme of the movie ("Misty Mountains") because of the adventurous feel it gives. The tracks are fitted into 2 discs, because there are 26 of them.

Howard Shore returns to Middle Earth for the first of the Hobbit films. He weaves in some themes from the Lord of The Rings, but moves in new directions with the soundtrack. The score is rich, lush, sweeping, and epic, returning us into the world of the Shire and beyond, drawing us into the adventures of a group of dwarves, one wizard, and one hobbit, as they go off into a world of hidden dangers. Shore is at the top of his game with this score, and it's very welcome indeed.
