5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous soundtrack to a gorgeous film
Those of you who have seen this film - and if you haven't, then you must see it soon as it is one of the greatest ever - will know just how good this soundtrack is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quirky post modernist, 11 Dec. 2013
This review is from: Orlando (Audio CD)
If you like Philip glass. Michael Nyman and hi nrg disco then you'll like this. A wonderful film and this recalls the beautiful imagery and themes. File under modern classical. But with a little input from bronski beat!
