Customer Reviews

Very moving and fitting.
Word Fan
This is the longer version heard in the credits and done very well by Mr. Finn who captured both the tone of the movie and the song very well.
Tammy Suto
A must buy for Hobbit and Lord of the Rings music fans.

The song is great which is why I wanted to get it. I still enjoy it and all. But when it came down to either getting the extended version or the regular version (at the time it was a 10 cent difference in price) you have no idea what the difference is. Since I figured bigger is better I got the extended version. All the extended version is two minutes of chords and notes being held out. It doesn't sound bad, but I just don't like having two minutes of holding various notes and chords when the song is over and I am ready for the next song on my playlist to play.

I don't know how this song did not get nominated for an academy award for the 2012 productions. It's very folksy and almost longing in a mysterious sort of way. The extended version just has some instrumental work at the end of the lyrics.

The full version of this song is much different than the one sang in the movie by Richard Armitage and the Dwarf cast which is spectacular by itself. This is the longer version heard in the credits and done very well by Mr. Finn who captured both the tone of the movie and the song very well.

very emotional and moving song that is the end piece for the first Hobbit film. The song seems perfect, proving once again Shore has a feel for the tone and prose of the film. Neil Finn really brings the song out with his Celtic voice. It's a haunting piece that refuses to leave my mind.

Neil Finn captures the heart of the story with this extended version of the "Song of the Lonely Mountain." It is a perfect accompaniment to Howard Shore's score.

I don't think it even sounded like the version of the song that played over the credits of the movie.. way more New Age-y and synth-y than I recalled.
The demo clip couldn't convey how much the song meandered, either.
I'll stick with the shorter, better, cast-sung version.

Howard Shore succeeds again. This is a great adaptation of Tolkien's poem from the book. The low register of all voices adds to the melancholy of the lyric. Hints of this piece re-appear in the rest of the movie score.
