Score of the rings

Heard this on the radio while driving. Bakshi is a figure of controversy, and few, if any, rank higher than his adaption of the cult Lord of the Rings book. But, despite some flaws, I find it an engaging film (and at times it reminds me of the art direction of Prince Valet). One area where it definitely succeeds, and I don't think I've ever heard anyone compliment, is the score by the great Leonard Rosenman. Definitely shreds the Howard Shore score, by a mile. Enjoy this playlist and tell me if you agree.
