If the tremendous amount of visual promo material for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey just isn’t cutting it for you, then maybe something more suited for your earballs will satiate that sick obsession you have with little people with huge, hairy feet. As something of a rare treat, you can now listen to the score for the film in its entirety… with a bit of a caveat. Or two.
First, you have to listen to the score as a single, unskippable track. Why? Because jerks steal things, that’s why. Also, the widget that plays the soundtrack is hosted at Empire, so you have to head over here to take a listen. As with all things, if you really enjoy the soundtrack it will be available for purchase on December 10, and if you’re super serious about it, you can pre-order it through the widget hosted on the site. I’ve listened to it for a bit now, and personally, I’d expect nothing less from a grand adventure through Middle-Earth. Expect heavy eargasms to ensue.[via Empire]
