TLOTR: The Return of the King Soundtrack

on 10/8/2008

As a huge fan of The Lord of the Rings, I found this soundtrack to be a great way to travel to Middle Earth when time doesn't permit me to watch the movie! With each track, I visualize the scenes of the movie. Love it! The CD arrived in great condition and in a timely manner. I am well pleased with my purchase. Read More
