Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King is a three-disc collection that spans composer Howard Shore's score for the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy. The Oscar-winning Fellowship of the Ring skillfully births many of the films' main themes. From the familiar opening violin motif of "The Prophecy" to the haunting elven hymn "Lothlorien," Shore lays out the blueprints for this immense work with precision and wonder, allowing the melodies to brew over time. The inclusion of the Enya-penned "May It Be" caused some controversy among purists who believed that the score would suffer if it deviated from the elvish language, yet it remains a pleasant and complimentary addition. The tone of the second film is much darker in scope, so it only seems fitting that Shore paint with a larger brush.
