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.
