A small criticism of The Hobbit Soundtrack (and film soundtracks in general)

While I love the soundtrack for this film, something that annoys me about soundtrack CDs in general is the fact that they never follow the music heard in the film to the letter: bits are added in where they shouldn't be, and the tracks are not always in the correct order that you hear them in the film either (some bits aren't in the film whatsoever!)

For people like me who are able to match the individual sections of each soundtrack with particular moments in the film after two or three (sometimes even one!) viewing(s), it is frustrating as you try to imagine the film in your head listening to the music....but suddenly the music goes off track, or skips ahead to the end of a sequence in mid-flow, using the skipped bit of music later on, etc etc.

Does anyone agree with me on this,or do you prefer soundtracks in this style? Do you like the music to flow in order or to vary in terms of it's relative position in the film? (Yes, I know that the soundtrack follows in MOSTLY the right order)

"These are Gundabad Wargs! They will outrun you!"

"THESE are Rhosgobel Rabbits! I'd like to see them try...."
