Product Description


Part of the concept behind applying music to this film will almost certainly have been to whip up a Korngoldian spirit of swashbuckling adventure. In the mock-ups that composer Randy Edelman would have made, it probably sounded like he'd got it. At the orchestral sessions it will have seemed settled. But then he added his own style, which is to overlay live instruments with synth samples (see "Kyle, The Wheat Boy"). The result almost always fits the picture; this time it didn't. Instead it's one of his most enjoyable scores- -but only on disc. What would once have been the movie's bad guy ("Dragonslayer") is now a misunderstood Sean Connery with fiery breath. Curiously there is something of Edelman's score for Dragon: the Bruce Lee Story in the "Main Title" introduction of principal motifs. Then, perplexingly, the spiritual movie finale is sequenced second ("To the Stars"). There are some comic interludes amongst the derring-do, too. After years of waiting for the CGI to catch up this score possibly attempts too much all at once. --Paul Tonks

This is one of Randy Edelman's best scores. The music is full of lots of themes that are gorgeous, sweeping, and light-hearted. The themes exchange back and forth throughout the score, putting a big smile on your face each time you hear one of them. The main theme in the film is a full blown orchestral delight featuring lots of heavenly strings, found in "The World of the Heart - Main Title". "To the Stars" utilizes a soaring male choir backing up the orchestra playing the main theme. "Wonders of An Ancient Glory" is a heavenly track with lots of soaring strings. "Einon", "The Last Dragon Slayer", and "Flight to Avalon" are 3 great adventurous cues with plenty of powerful brasses and driving war drums. "Mexican Standoff" and "A Refreshing Swim" are 2 playful tracks that are slightly comedic in nature and generally light-hearted and fun. "Draco" and "Re-Baptism" are 2 very light, floating cues with the main theme played beautifully on each one. The best track of them all is the last one, "Finale", which comprises lots of the themes into a grand finale that really explodes and leaves you wanting more. This is definitely one of Edelman's best and one of my favorite scores. A must own!!

WOW! That's my initial reaction upon listening to this awesome soundtrack. The word awesome means "awe inspiring" and the main theme to Dragonheart does just that: inspire awe. Ever since I first heard the theme played during the "Mulan" promos, I fell in love with it, humming what little bit I heard, and basking in the granduer of it. I assumed it was from the movie "Mulan", but upon listening to some of the tracks I realized it wasn't. I was quite disapointed, and wondered where it came from. Them I heard it during a movie montage thing that showed before a lot of movies at the theatre, and it just teased me some more. I desperately wanted to find it, but had no idea where. Then, while online here at Amazon, and after reading the reviews, and seeing them mention the music was used in "Mulan" promos, I became very excited. Could this possibly be it? I quickly purchased it and eagerly awaited it's arrival. Imagine my joy upon hearing the majestic main theme that was so familier in my mind, playing out on the CD for the first time. It was great!
But anyway, about the CD. Just listening to the music makes my spirits soar, and brings up images of perserverance, triumph, and the "silver lining" in everything. If I'm in a foul mood or upset about something, this is where I'll turn. It is so uplifting. The main theme is repeated in various parts throughout the whole CD, in different ways. But that's fine with me, since it's so beautiful. There are really no annoying, "boom boom" action cues on it, which is another plus in my book. Tracks 1, 2, and 15 are the best, but the rest of it is really good as well.

When I saw the movie I cried a couple of times, much due to the music that accompanied the finale. Not often have I seen a movie that touched me like Dragonheart did. After seeing the movie I started to search for the songs on the net and I found all of them and I listened to them, often, remembering the scenes that made me cry, in sorrow and in happiness. But, as you probably know, Mp3:s don't have the quality to fully reproduce the true quality of a CD so I decided to get it. It had never been released where I live so I had to order it from America, and it got expensive but still I think that buying it was the best decision I ever made, it's that good. Randy Edelman is the true master among the soundtrack-composers.

Dragonheart. This is definitely Edelman's best yet! If you liked the soundtrack to Gettysburg, then this score will also appeal to you. Edelman uses much of the same features as he used in Gettysburg, including using the guitar and flute often (like he did with Gettysburg on the track, "Fife and Gun") Edelman uses the guitar quite often in Dragonheart. Track number one, "The World of the Heart", starts with strings and a lonely bell in the background. As the music progresses, a guitar joins up with the rest of the orchestra, 'til it eventually leads to the main theme, where strings play as the primary instruments, and brass in the background. The main title is very inspiring, and is used occasionally in other tracks on the CD. Another good track that is "The Last Dragon Slayer", in which a flute and guitar play together as the main instruments till later into the music, where strings and brass start playing and the music begins to get a little on the tense side. Most of the music on this CD is dominated by strings, so anybody who likes the violin will love this soundtrack! Track 15, "Finale", is basically the main theme from Dragonheart, however, after the main theme is played, it blends into other music that has been mixed together from other tracks. I wouldn't hesitate to add this soundtrack to my collection. This is Edelman's best so far!
