    Great choices David (although The Hobbit would have been number 1 in my list)!

      Really? I must say I was disappointed by Desolation’s soundtrack, with only a couple of pieces sticking in the mind. I was also a bit disappointed that (as far as I’m aware), the ‘Misty Mountains Cold’ melody doesn’t occur, but each to his own, I suppose.

        The new themes were excellent (Tauriel’s theme and the Lake-Town theme come to mind) Howard Shore has explained why the “Misty mountains theme doesn’t appear in this film. It’s due to the company being in unknown territory and not being really safe at any point, he wanted the audience to feel this as well by not having the theme present. He has hinted it will return in “There and Back Again”

          That makes sense, I suppose, and I did enjoy the Lake Town theme.

    Excellent article, David. Personally for me Frozen and the Hobbit would be first and second place. They’re both amazing soundtracks that resonate with me on so many levels.

    But great choices!
