Tolkien fans around the world have been waiting for this show for quite some time, and even though the amazing score is composed by Bear McCreary, the producers brought back Howard Shore to compose the 'Main Title'. The last time Shore had composed work for The Hobbit/LOTR was back in 2013, so it was great to finally see his return to Middle Earth and experience his interpretation of this story through music.
This 'Main Title' sequence is beautiful to watch, but it also covers all elements of the story. Through deep vocals, strings, percussion, and brass - there is never a dull moment and it instantaneously brings you into the story you have yet to experience. If you haven't seen this show, please do so - it's incredible.
