I went ahead and bought this because there are versions on YouTube and I love them there. This CD will let me listen to them without hogging bandwidth or being distracted by the wonderful videos. No guilt about listening to them at work!
If you like the movies or vocal music, you will most likely enjoy these. If you like both, you certainly will.
I can't imagine a reason a PH fan wouldn't love this.
I will be watching for more releases by Peter Hollens. I just wish I could download direct from Amaxon to my Kindle... ah well I have a computer so it will happen the hard way.
The album features twelve songs, from "I See Fire" to a "Hobbit Drinking Medley," the latter of which includes the Dwarves' "Blunt the Knives" song. Personally, I had no idea there were so many LOTR/Hobbit-related songs out there. Peter has been releasing them for years, but until he put them all in one place it wasn't obvious just how many there were. Rather than bore you by listing them all myself, please take a look at the track listing above.
The music isn't all just Peter. Premier anime/game/fantasy violinist Taylor Davis accompanies him on "I See Fire" and "May It Be," while Home Free's Tim Foust provides earth-rumbling bass for "Misty Mountains" and the Vlogbrothers' Hank Green sings background in the "Hobbit Drinking Medley."
My favorite tracks are "I See Fire" - largely because of Taylor's superb violin - and "The Last Goodbye." In "Goodbye" Peter really unlimbers his vocal cords and lets his range show; his voice soars from a near-whisper to awe-inspiring heights. It gives me chills.
Turning from content to the CD itself, the packaging is a standard diamond case with high-quality cover and inserts. Photography, graphics, and copy are all first-rate. The CD itself plays well, and the audio is excellent.
If you're a fan of The Lord of The Rings and The Hobbit, whether of the books or of the movies, you should give this a listen. Speaking as a long-time Tolkien fan myself, I'm sure you'll enjoy it.
We highly enjoy numbers 1,2,4,5,8,12!
