    It was okay.

    This is still my favorite version:

    str8voices? There`s a name that`s got to mean some sort of `Christian` choir where they all met at church.

    Sounds better with male tenor voice, to me, but it`s not bad. Hail Tolkein.

    I agree with TruTenrMan, the Peter Hollens version is better. This version is good but the women kind of kill it for me.

    The wussy guy at the opening and the end who didn`t have the range to hit the low notes pretty much ruined it for me. They need to kick his sorry ass out and hire someone who can sing bass properly. The girls weren`t bad, but they couldn`t make up for such a lousy start and finish.

    Ok, being a huge fan of music, Tolkien and Jackson`s adaptations...this is very underwhelming. It`s actually quite bad. Goosebumps were shared with everyone in the cinema when Armitage did it. No goose bump was given when these people did it. Not by me at least. Fail.

    Good up until the part where the women injected it with estrogen and sissified it!

    I`m with Tru, Hollins did it way better. But then he does everything better.

    Quite a good rendition, nice touch with the female voices.

    I agree with everyone saying that it was really good until the women joined in. It`s just not a song for a high pitched voice.

    It was good for a young choir. I sang with the Minnesota Chorale for years but eventually had to leave because the director was getting too many of her university students to join and the sound was getting too young and thin for my taste. The classics need deep, mature voices to sound great.
