The greatest score of all time to accompany the greatest film of all time.

The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, is, in my opinion, the greatest film of all time. Yeah yeah, Citizen Kane, The Godfather, Casablanca, Lawrence of Arabia, etc. A film doesn have to be over 45 years old to be considered one of the greatest films of all time. The LOTR Trilogy is unquestionably the greatest film trilogy in cinematic history, and ROTK is IMO the number one film of all time. As such, its only fitting that the greatest film of all time be accompanied by what I consider the greatest score ever. Not only was the original release great, but this just makes for a whole new listening experience. Clocking in at just under 4 hours, this release basically covers every single note of the ROTK score throughout the film (theatrical and extended). $24.99 may seem steep, but its realy cheap considering the retail cost of $79.99. I'll be gettting the CD version simply for the box design and whatnot. But seriously, if you have any interest in film scores, do not miss this one! Buy it now!

Fact: No one can beat the Lord of the Rings.

It is simply the best movie/soundtrack ever. Deal with it.

PLEASE add the other 2 LOTR full soundtracks!!

4 hours of incredible listening, but my appetite is not fulfilled. I need the whole trilogy :) Simply awesome!
