Product Description

In January 2001, we released our Lord of the Rings music tribute song, "Tolkien (The Hobbit & Lord of the Rings)" to MP3.com. Within a month, the song skyrocketed up the charts to #14 of the MP3.com charts out of over two million songs!

Two years later, the Brobdingnagian Bards are at last completing a music CD dedicated to the JRR Tolkien's. This album is soundtrack, if you will for the books, filled with entirely original Lord of the Rings music. It is a mostly instrumental album that aspires to show our memories of the Lord of the Rings music world.

If you enjoy the music of JRR Tolkien, consider checking out the album that started it all--Songs of the Muse which features the original release of our #1 hit song that is still the most-popular Celtic song on MP3.com, "Tolkein (The Hobbit & Lord of the Rings)".

Review

this CD is really quite excellent -- especially when you consider it's self-produced! -- Rambles, a cultural arts magazine

What can I say. This is a fantastic CD! The last reviewer obviously did not listen to the album since it is largely instrumental and features some amazing music that's almost spiritual in nature.
"Hobbit's Dance" is my personal favorite, followed by "The Ring of Hope" which is a beautiful folk ballad from the perspective of Sam Gamgee.
True, there are a couple week songs, like "Legolas", and while I love the "idea" behind "The Psychopathic Chronic Schizophrenic Gollum Blues", I don't think it's quite as funny as it could be. But I have heard it live and they change up the lyrics which makes it even better than ever. "Shadofax" and "Moria" both do a beautiful job at subtlely capturing the magic of their namesakes. And, of course, "Tolkien (The Hobbit & Lord of the Rings)" is absolutely brilliant!
I can't say this album is for everyone though. It's not, but considering you can listen to the album on their webpage or download "Tolkien" for free, there's no reason why anyone should come away disappoineted with buying this CD.
Give it a try. I'm certain you'll love it as much as I do!

I cannot think of any group who could do what the Brobdingnagian Bards do-that is, to capture the spirit of such a classic and record it. This album is a great addition to any Tolkien fan's library. If you are new to Tolkien, or spent hours a day travelling through Middle Earth again and again, you'll love this CD. I know I do! :)

this song is by-far one of the best instrumentals I have ever heard..it is a very calming song that lifts you up and makes you smile...on a scale from 1 to 10,I rate it around 17...it has one of the sweetest recorders you'll ever hear being played...it would be an excellent song to play at a wedding...

A 'must have' for all Tolkien fans!

I didn't know about the existance of The Bards until I attened the 'North Georgia Celtic Festival'. They were there and I heard them play several songs on this CD and several of their others. When I saw this CD being sold indoors, I immeadiately wanted it, being the LotR fanatic that I am. Bought the CD and had them sign it also... Probably the best thing I've done with my money in months...

Personal favorites include: The Psychopathic, Chronic, Schizophrenic Gollum Blues, Weathertop, The Heart of Fangorn, and Now It's Time To Go (Bilbo's Farewell Song). The instrumental pieces are awesome also... I feel like I **was** in Fangorn, Lothlorien, Moria... everywhere they covered in their lovely music.

I'll have to admit that the first time i listened to this CD i thought it was a bit strange. But the songs grew on me, and i love it as much as anything else the Bards have done. (Which is a lot!) Legolas is a bit silly, but other than that one track the album is great fun to listen to, and you can really get the feeling that this is an album the Bards did out of their love for the books, and defenitely not something they just did to make money or jump on the bandwagon.
