Although ostentatiously "80's" with its use of synthesizers, the soundtrack for the hysterical movie and brilliant novel, "The Princess Bride" is a treasure. The music, so perfectly composed for the film, evokes memories of every single action. While listening to the opening strains, one can imagine, nearly in perfect sync with the movie, Westley saying, "As you wish." While listening to the swordfight, one recalls every slash, parry and thrust (not to mention every quip, swing and switch.). "The Princess Bride" plays like a silent film's orchestration, galloping hoofbeats, trumpeting the hero, flitting alongside Buttercup. The CD is a perfect way to "watch the movie" in the office or in the car, no matter how "incontheivable" such a proposition may seem. Enjoy...or prepare to die.
