Must stop listening to Hobbit music tracks early

Must stop listening to Hobbit music tracks early Can't Post

Yesterday, I finally decided to follow one of those links to go listen to some of the Hobbit music. It was the Radagast track, I think.

So, as it starts, I'm thinking -- yea, that sounds kinda like LotR-esque music. But as it proceeded, I found that I was almost forcing myself to like the music. I had ZERO emotion otherwise. And I think it is because I haven't seen the movie yet, so don't have any visuals to connect to the music.

Imagine yourself, if someone played the LotR music for you but you hadn't seen the movies. Would the music mean anything to you?

This means I'm worried that if I try to listen to the music now - before seeing the movie - that I might taint my emotional response to it once I hear it in the movie. And that is something I must avoid.

So I just wanted to post this, as I hope none of you are experiencing what I have with the new music - and if so, I urge you to follow me - and STOP listening to it until after you've seen the movie. (Btw - I stopped listening to that track before 2 minutes in)

Thoughts?
