Desolation  of Smaug soundtrack special edition Ringer Simon gives us a quick heads-up that Entertainment Weekly have 30-second samples of all 29 tunes from the special edition of the soundtrack for The Desolation of Smaug.

Howard Shore’s soundtrack is due for release on December 10, and you can pre-order the Special Edition on Amazon here, or the standard release here. My verdict: they sound great but the clips are too short!

Anyway, rather than me blathering, just go have a listen for yourself!
