Has anyone posted this yet?

31 minute long sampling of the soundtrack. I can view/listen to it here in Oz, but I've heard that the video is blocked in the USA on copyright grounds. Of course, it's still possible to find copies of it on file sharing sites, if you so desire.

And here's the full version of "Song of the Lonely Mountain", which is supposed to be the end credits song:

Re: THE HOBBIT (2012/2013): News, Rumors, Pics Till Release

Thanks for that RS link. Quite enjoyable.

For a few days last week, score samples were available here (the previews have since been taken down). I did get the chance to listen to all of the previews once. And while there were a couple of moments when I was reminded of Hugo, it was thoroughly enjoyable, despite the lack of context. There were enough returning themes (Hobbits/Shire; Mordor; Rivendell; etc.) to make it familiar, while expanding the palette. Tonally, it's not very different from LOTR - which says, to me at least, that the films themselves will be tonally similar.

Still with the addition of the diagetic tracks, there's a small, but significant enough difference to provide a unique personality for the Hobbit Soundtrack, as compared to LOTR.

Your most welcome. I think the score is beautiful, as well as the end song, had no idea who this Neil Finn is but I dare say he could give Adele an run for the Oscar.

He played in a band called Crowded House which used to be quite popular over here in Europe. But that was another century...

I think the score is beautiful. As someone mentioned before, it sounds rather familiar. Not sure yet about the end credits song though. Personnally, I prefer Richard Armitage's voice over Neil Finn's.

Re: THE HOBBIT (2012/2013): News, Rumors, Pics Till Release

Yeah I think that is what Shore was going for...familiar but fresh and new as well. Can obviously hear the returning themes and cues from the previous scores, as well as brand new music created for the film. I think it's brilliant myself.

Amazing score. Simply wonderful to listen to. I don't get any sense of "filler" material on it. And the end Song of the Lonely Mountain is a great mix of emotions - dark and light. You can listen to it on its own here:

Ah yes ... that's what I get for posting after a couple glasses of wine, then forgetting what I posted.

Back on topic, though, I've listened to the score a couple of times now. And, with respect to the pacing of the film, it seems like it's going to be much slower than the book ... at least in terms of how long it takes to move from one chapter to the next.

Fans can get their first glimpse of footage from “Star Trek Into Darkness” before select screenings of “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,” Paramount announced Wednesday. The first nine minutes of the highly anticipated sequel to J.J. Abrams’ 2009 “Star Trek” film will be previewed before IMAX 3D screenings in roughly 500 theaters beginning Dec. 14.
