5.0 out of 5 stars Quality yet again, 24 Jan 2011
Tom Jenkinson has produced another wonderful piece of music. He seems amazingly prolific and for this I'm eternally grateful. This new album, though short, is packed with some lovely, funky melodic tunes that show how far ahead of everyone else he is in contemporary music.

3.0 out of 5 stars something is missing, 8 Nov 2006
I love the film and the music, don't get me wrong. But I bought this cd expecting a certain piece of music from the film (played twice in fact) to be present. But it wasn't! I only bought the cd for that piece (played when Cunningham and his troop first set off from Montrose's castle in search of Rob, and when he is being dragged behind the horse after being captured) and i am so annoyed that it isn't there! bah!!!!
