Customer Reviews

Great folk album!

This is a fantastic tribute album with acoustic music composed by the performers. With both touching and lively instrumentals, insightful and entertaining vocals, and a touch of comedy, this album has something for everyone who loves The Lord of the Rings! It is far superior to any other "Lord of the Rings" tribute albums I've listened to. The Bards' refreshing sound combines autoharp, recorder, and mandolin. You don't often hear this mix of instrumentation, but the Bards make it work brilliantly! The autoharp in particular gives a unique and often haunting sound to the album. All instruments are played with skill, and blended effectively into a seamless whole. "Tolkien" is the first song I ever heard by this band, and now I own all their albums. It's a great introduction to the Bards for anyone who loves The Lord of the Rings! I'm not sure what the last reviewer (nausicaa) was after, but I really don't understand his dislike. This album isn't the slick, polished Hollywood sound of Howard Shore, but it isn't supposed to be. The music has a vivid, realistic sound and a homey feel that brings Lord of the Rings off the silver screen and puts it in your heart.

Jolly Good.

Let me start by saying I don't really fancy Lord of the Rings 'inspired' music. I like the real stuff. But, to the Brobdingnagian Bards' defense, it's not the worst I've heard- actually one of the better aforementioned 'inspired' albums I've heard. I've never been one to argue against celtic-folk-medieval sounding music, especially if it's played on instruments that I recognise such as the recorder, mandolin, and autoharp (I myself am an avid Irish tinwhistle and Appalachian dulcimer player, which are slightly similar). 'The Psychopathic, Chronic, Schizophrenic Gollum Blues' is VERY amusing, and 'The Grey and the White,' a Gandalf-inspired track, is very Elizabethan-inspired piece. Three stars and cheers to this one.

Good album

You have to like celtic music and comedy to appreciate this music. I do like their other albums better than this one, although I love Lord of the Rings. I really like this band, and love parody, but it is not for everyone.
