I honestly thought [In reply to] Can't Post

that they would choose purple for TABA. Purple signifying royalty and nobility.

I simply walked into Mordor.

Thought so too [In reply to] Can't Post

But a more cyan…ish color could work just fine for TABA:

That would be a lovely colour for TABA... [In reply to] Can't Post

Though, as Thranderz said, I would have expected purple for TABA and cyan for DoS...

Oh well... *shrugs* I just hope Peter knows what he's doing (concerning the films, and his choices of colours). Wink

Wow! Very nice... [In reply to] Can't Post

I hadn't thought of purple for TABA at all, I reckoned it more likely to be gold, with grey or silver for DoS....but this is nice!

Cool [In reply to] Can't Post

so the Themes for the films are

FOTR: Green (for the shire and newness)
TTT: Red (the danger has never been higher)
ROTK: Blue (endings and sorrow)
AUJ: Brown (rustic)
DOS: Purple (royal)

so I'm guessing for TABA light blue for happy endings and clear skies lol

So...am I the only one looking forward to this album more than the film itself? [In reply to] Can't Post

Blush

That's not to say I'm not looking forward to the movie (cause I certainly am), but if there was one aspect of AUJ that entirely lived up to the standard set by LotR, it was Howard's score, as represented on the album release. I got chills down my spine listening to the CDs last year. Masterful scoring. Smile

As for the cover art, wow! Purple was unexpected, but a nice choice. I'm already anticipating seeing that cover on my iPod underneath AUJ. Cool

You're not alone [In reply to] Can't Post

The music is also the thing which i'm looking forward to the most in the upcoming movies Wink. Especially now with all the new characters and places which will bring loads of new themes. I'm also very curious to hear the NZSO's work, and how it might give us a new, unique 'sound' compared to the previous scores.

Same here [In reply to] Can't Post

I was looking forward for the first Hobbit movie and the score but actually I was even more looking forward to the music. Why? Perhaps because I hear the music more often than seeing the films. After watching the movies a couple of times I had enough for half a year or so. But the score... well I could hear it every day at least once and it wouldn't be too much.

I bought the SE-Soundtrack the day it was released.
I bought the regular Bluray a couple of days after it's release... Well even a few weeks I guess. But I don't know it if it was because I had seen the movie in cinema that many times and I'm still waiting for the EE?

The point is: The score is at least one of the most important parts of the movies for me. Especially if it's released a couple of days earlier than the movie we can (again) start guessing what which using of each theme could imply. And even more interesting: Which new theme and cue represents which new character or location? This time it's even more thrilling because we'll meet so many more characters and places.

The only bad pont about it is: When you heard the score before watching the movie you get used to it and you enjoy and love it and you're even looking forward to hear it in the cinema and then... it's replaced with tracks from the LOTR score... well but that's the risk you take ;-)

Okay so this is really important (to me at least) Here's a theory: [In reply to] Can't Post

As most of you know, each film has had its own colour coding on all merchandise and the Extended Editions have followed these colours:

FotR - Green
TTT - Red
RotK - Blue
AUJ - Brown

So far DoS has been Cyan. And now the soundtrack is purple, so it seems at first to be inconsistent... BUT!

If we look at the "Complete Recordings" for LotR we find that the colour coding is mixed:

FotR - Red
TTT - Blue
RotK - Green

So using this evidence I think Purple is in fact the colour for TaBA and DoS's Extended Edition will be Cyan, like the merchandise. No idea why the soundtracks change the colours around, but there you go! That's my theory Smile

Absolutely love the purple, though. Looks fantastic!

Doug Adams commented on color coding... [In reply to] Can't Post

The green color coding on FOTR was established way later than the first limited soundtrack (red). Then the soundtrack producers decided just to rotate the existing colors.

Really? [In reply to] Can't Post

There was another limited soundtrack besides the complete recordings?

I thought the only FOTR soundtrack that even used red packaging was the complete recordings, which came out years after the entire trilogy was already finished. The green color for FOTR was established in 2001-2002 when all of the merchandise was just coming out.

Each original soundtrack release... [In reply to] Can't Post

...was accompanied by a limited edition release. Special leather packaging, with an expanded booklet and alternate disc art (and RotK included a special DVD on Howard's scoring process).

The colors used on these editions (Red for FotR, Blue for TTT, & Green for RotK) were then repeated on the Complete Recordings.

the Limited Edition LotR soundtracks (the leatherette ones) in red for FotR, black for TTT and Green for RotK. Don't know what that means, but they look cool.

you can see an accounting of all the editions on my website. [In reply to] Can't Post

Follow the link in my footer and find a link in the left side navigation frame for "CD Editions"

There were limited editions and internet limited editions for TTT and ROTK. The musical content was the same for each movie's limited edition and internet limited editions. But the ILE had more bling (collectible cards or stamps) and they were different colors.
