Listen to the Individual Tracks from THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY Soundtrack

     November 30, 2012


A couple weeks ago, we posted a link to the score for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.  The only problem with Empire’s player is that you could move between tracks, and if you stopped playback, you went all the way back to the beginning of the score when you started up again.  Today, Rolling Stone has posted the full soundtrack, and now you can move between tracks, play and pause, and decide which are your favorites.  Personally, I’m partial to “Misty Mountains”, which we heard in the first trailer for the film.  Tolkien fills his books with characters singing, and while it reads terribly (music without notes is just poetry; in his case, it’s bad poetry), composer Howard Shore has made this song work wonderfully.

Click here to listen to the soundtrack, which will be available on December 11th.  The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey opens December 14th.

    Howard Shore got the soundtrack completely wrong. I understand more than he does.

    Speak for yourself. He writes cool poetry. His writing is amazingly beautiful.

    Poetry ? If I have to choose between Shakespeare and Tolkien, I’ll take the Latter. No brain choice.

  • Seriously?

    Matt Goldberg, at it again. Criticizing something he could never even dream of being able to do. Tolkien was — and still is — one of the greatest writers of all time. His poetry, while strange to read because you know it’s meant to be a song, is magnificent. I’d like to see you do half of what he did.

    You’re ridiculous….

      tell me about it, what a complete cretin, hateful, bitter ass wipe. So Goldberg, done anything good recently, in the past few years even, you useless, talentless goblin

        I’d say he’s more of a troll.

        GET IT? hur hur hur

  • Mr Kippling

    score = amazing!

    Matt Goldberg = total prick, as usual :p

    Damn Goldberg, do you write shit like that on purpose just to get more page views?? Jesus man, I know you can write, but you don’t have to fill every report you do with an outlandish criticism just for the hell of it.
