Does anyone else's copy have the spine printed upside down?

One vinyl boxset to rule them all. One pressing to cast them all into darkness.

Wow the price exploded over the years lol didn’t think it would get this bad

Why is this so inflated in price compared to the other two in the trilogy? Even this time last year the price wasn't nearly this high.


August 19, 2019

Strange, why is this (so much) more expensive than the other 2??

Ahh, finally, the LOTR soundtracks on vinyl. I went for these release, hoping to FINALLY get a decend sounding soundtrack (those CDs really are nothing special). I layed the first vinyl on my turntable and afer a few minutes, I couldn't help but draw a wide smile across my face. Sure, it's not groundbreaking, but it's DEFINITELY the best this music has ever sounded. Truly, the LOTR score has NEVER sounded more majestic, more dynamic, more clear. This is an astounding release, that I recommend to any fan of these soundtracks. When I listened to Bilbo's party, I could literally hear all of the instruments with perfect clarity. The Bridge of Khazad-Dum sound powerful and totally over-bass-whelming (can this be a new word? Did I just coin a new word?). The box is very pretty, if somewhat weak. You have to be careful with it (which I expect every person who buys such a set to be). The booklet is made of quality paper, really glad when I saw it. And the third of the map of Middle-Earth is extremely cool.
All in all, a fantastic release with clear and deep sound. A true collector's item, through and through. Buy it before these prices skyrocket.

Preordered this from Barnes and Nobles and it is fantastic. I would recommend listening with headphones, the pressing is a bit quiet....but there is absolutely no surface noise and there are only like 3 very quiet pops throughout the entire 5 records. Highly recommend..

Is there plans to reprint sell more of these? I just noticed that it even existed and do not want to pay the huge markup.

This desperately needs a reissue. I preordered it from as soon as it went up, it was out of stock on release day, so I ordered it on Banres and Noble when it said it was in stock, wait weeks only for the order to be canceled and I refuse to pay double or more from a third party. I don't care about the fancy case or coloured records, I just want the music in hand. They obviously severely underestimated the demand for this and many people seem to have been left out in the cold on it.
