Product Description

This is primarily a score album, though there are a couple of non-orchestral songs represented, most notably Bryan Adams' "Everything I Do," which became a huge hit single around the same time. Most of the works are essentially what you'd expect from a Robin Hood movie -- horns, strings, and flutes, all played in a vaguely Old English manner. The rest is mood music. Given that it's a score, the music of course is meant to work well within the confines of the movie's background. Released on its own, it loses some of its power. Still, it sold well due to the Bryan Adams single, which probably needs little or no review of its own. To help capitalize on this single, one notices that the score occasionally returns to themes from the big song. Michael Kamen, known for his forays into mainstream (non-classical) music, while sticking with his full symphony, does some very good work here in evoking the moods of the movie. This is one of the few score-based soundtracks that could possibly stand on its own, though it's still relatively weak when compared to music written to stand alone.

I discovered the soundtrack at the same time as when the film came out in 1991 and it has more than survived the passage of time.

The album combines all elements which make up the film as a whole: a sense of the medieval world, the overwhelming presence of nature, the wide open spaces crossing the English countryside, the battles and violence, the harsh existence and the suffering of the times, the moments of tenderness, the banter and companionship, the tensions and the rivalry, the sense of loss (loss of a world which existed before Robin went away to the crusades and the loss of his father and his position), the evil permeating from the deeds of the sheriff's witch and the locals' superstition, the romance in difficult circumstances, the sense of honour and courage to fight against the oppressors and unfairness. The soundtrack excels on all levels, whether on tracks where the action is very strong or during moments where feelings are understated and expressed via a sublime subtlety.

If you manage to devote your full attention to the album, you could find yourself be carried away to another world and experience a kaleidoscope of emotions.

The fact to this day, the tracks can still evoke the same emotions is testament to its quality. A truly exceptional album which magnifies the action content, the setting and the emotional depth of a great film.

First of all this was a CD that I've been anticipating for a long time.

I've looked all over for a soundtrack as Robin Hood is one of my favourite Movies so thank you Amazon for supplying it.

However there are some glaring absences of some of the best music from the film. Examples include Robin's first encounter with Marian, the battle with the Celts at Sherwood Forest, half of the gallows ending music. Those are just a few examples.

I do rate it as a good CD but we badly need an extended release with the rest of the music with more tracks. Do we really need for example the opening Overture to the film to be put on the same track as the "prisoner of the crusades" theme? I'm not so sure.

So while I am satisfied with the excellent music that is included on this CD I would still hold out for an extended version of the soundtrack that does justice to a wonderful film score that carries the film so well.

What can I say? I saw the film for the first time about six years ago and it has always been a firm favourite of mine - getting this brought back all the memories of the first time I ever saw it. Highlights are 'Maid Marian' 'Overture and a Prisoner of the Crusades' and who could ever forget 'Everything I do (I do it for you)'? As you listen you can picture the action in your mind - from the beginning when we find Robin in the prison during the crusades to his reunion with Duncan to the birth of John little's baby to the wedding of Robin and Marian. Truly this a worthwhile soundtrack befitting any collection and not to be missed!

This CD is certainly a popular one, thanks in no small part to Bryan Adams' hit song. Kamen's CD releases are notoriously lazy and bare but when I listened to the first few tracks, I was pleasantly surprised. The first quarter of the movie is presented quite satisfactorily (tracks 1-3) and is the best section of the CD. His theme tune for Robin of Locksley is an exciting piece, updating the Prince of Thieves for a new generation of cinema goers and his fondness for Mario Nascimbene's 'The Vikings' shows in Robin's fanfare. This segues directly into the escape from the Crusades then a beautiful piece as Robin returns home, a melancholic theme for Marion and finally an adventurous frolicking in Sherwood, complete with traditional 'twangs'. However, from here on, as expected, the CD drops into an editing mess. Bits and pieces of the rest of the score are chopped into a handful of tracks with most of the score omitted, giving you a taste, rather than an experience and it ends with the inclusion of a mis-judged song 'Wild Times'. Overall, it's a good CD but since this is possibly Kamen's best scoring effort, it could have been so much better. I eagerly await an expanded release.

Yes this beautiful piece of music shoots just like an arrow and pierces your mind. If you like the movie, this soundtrack will be just as good, giving you the atmosphere of one of times best action films.
It is much clearer of course on CD but the vinyl somehow adds to the soundtrack experience. It's great.
So if you loved the movie, then this is a must.
And of course, it includes mister Bryan Adam's song "Everything I Do (I do it for you")- what an ending!
