New LOTR CD Reviewed at Science Fiction Weekly

A.L. Sirois writes: It’s tempting to say that this boxed set does as much for the Lord of the Rings saga as Peter Jackson’s movies. That would be wrong.

One thing, however, is obvious: In seeking to trim the action down into manageable chunks, Jackson saw fit to omit certain things, including most of the songs and poems.
