Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Writer-director Brian Helgeland dared to use rock music--mostly anthems from the '70s--to accompany his rousing tale of a medieval jousting champion, and this anachronistic strategy pays off handsomely by giving the film a joyful exuberance that it might otherwise have lacked. Divorced from the movie, this hot sampling of hits is just another corporate song package intended to boost the movie's profit margin, but it's still a blast to listen to. For anyone who grew up with this music--by Queen, War, David Bowie, Bachman-Turner Overdrive, Heart, Thin Lizzy, and others--the lineup of favorites plays like an hour from the golden years of album-oriented-rock radio. Younger listeners can hear what they missed--the music was so much better than it was given credit for at the time--and an update of Queen's "We Are the Champions," with Robbie Williams interpreting the irreplaceable Freddie Mercury, turns out to be not half bad (especially since Brian May's guitar licks are still fantastic). "One of Our Own" is the only track to sample Carter Burwell's lush film score with a dialogue clip included, and three tracks (including "Eye Conqueror" by Third Eye Blind) are passable nonmovie songs exclusive to this CD. Cynics might argue that this music has no place in a medieval knight's tale, and that this soundtrack is entirely perfunctory. Those opinions could be justified, but it's a whole lot easier--and a lot more fun--to press "play" and groove on this energetic celebration of heroic rock & roll. --Jeff Shannon

4.0 out of 5 stars Knight's Music Rocks! May 8, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The soundtrack for "A Knight's Tale" is really great. I saw the movie the other night, and I loved the 70s rock music that was played throughout the film. The music is upbeat and positive and keeps you in a funky mood all day! If you like Queen, David Bowie, and other great rock performers of the 70s and 80s, then you'll love this soundtrack. Songs like "We Will Rock You" and "We Are the Champions" get you energized and pumped, and they're great to listen to in your car or while you're working out. "Low Rider" is a fun song to play on your stereo, as are all the other songs on this cd. Overall, I think "A Knight's Tale" soundtrack is a great cd, and I recommend it to everyone, especially those who have seen the movie. :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous September 9, 2001
By Tracy
Format:Audio CD
I saw this movie in the theater. Throughout the entire movie, I found myself singing the words to all the songs throughout the different scenes. I was not only awed by the movie itself, but the music playing in the background. A lot of the time the music was the main part of the scene.... two words "Golden Years." I have to say that was my favorite part of the movie. The day after seeing this movie, I went and bought the CD. I have listened to it thousands of times! I just can't get enough! Who doesn't love the classics such as "We Will Rock You", "The Boys Are Back in Town", "Further on Up the Road", and I think pretty much everyone loves "Low Rider." This CD not only has those great classics, but some newer songs, like Third Eye Blind's "Eye Conqueror." It also has a great cut of "We Are the Champions" with Robbie Williams + Queen. So if you loved the movie... or haven't seen the movie yet. Go out and get the CD. You'll love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome album!!! May 13, 2001
By Tom
Format:Audio CD
I saw A Knight's Tale on opening night last Friday and I imediately knew that I had to get the soundtrack! It is so great, especially songs like "The boys are back in town", "We Will Rock You", and "Eye Conquerer", by Third Eye Blind. If your having second thoughts about getting this CD, then Don't. Buy this CD and you will relive every moment of the movie. This is the best soundtrack I've ever purchased and you won't regret it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Soundtrack for a Great Film May 16, 2001
Format:Audio CD
First of all, I LOVE this movie for two reasons: (1) it is set in my favorite time period; and (2) the message it brings to young people is both timeless and timely, i.e., if you have the right stuff, you can be anything you want to be and "change your stars" if you act with integrity and don't give up. Therefore, I give the CD four stars for being associated with the movie.
Now, to the soundtrack CD. I won't address the daring decision to blend rock hits with a period film because it was a creative and effective idea (in my opinion), which should be applauded. The soundtrack, however, is a little limited, disappointing and doesn't truly exemplify the complete range of musical diversity contained within the film.
This CD is all rock and roll, which is great. My problem with it is that it does not contain any of the beautiful theme music that was heard in between the rock hits. This could have been included by just omitting the "bonus tracks", which weren't in the film anyway and are irrelevant.
So, I have to concur with the Amazon review that this CD is primarily designed to boost profit margins. While exciting images of the film will instantly come to mind with songs like, "We Will Rock You", I think putting a little more thought into the compilation of songs could have set it further apart from any other "Hits of the 70's" album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great fun May 13, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I won't go into the previously released songs like Bowie's "Golden Years" since most everyone has heard them already.Instead I'd like to focus on 2 of the 3 new songs."We Are the Champions" is a new version of the classic rock anthem sung by Robbie Williams and backed by the surviving members of rock legends Queen.It begins with a William Orbit-style "spacey" sound which gives a fresh coat of paint to a song originally written in 1977.Naturally the chorus is identical to the original and Williams does a surprisingly good job filling Freddie Mercury's very large shoes. Brian May and Roger Taylor of Queen continue to shine as musicians here. May provides us with a new guitar solo which fits in perfectly and Taylor's able drumming sets the stage for a rousing sing-a-long."Pieces" by Dan Powell is a real gem. A surprisingly warm and heartfelt ballad. When listening, I pictured a pair of lovers at night with one gently singing the song to the other. Very moving but not in the sappy 70's vein, more like an Oasis ballad sung by Noel Gallagher and NOT Liam (think "Don't Look Back In Anger".)The soundtrack is worth a purchase based on these 2 songs alone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely a great soundtrack May 14, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Plain and simple, this soundtrack is awesome. If you've seen the movie (which I encourage you to do) you can pinpoint the parts when each of these songs comes into play. Most of them are songs that we all know and love, but don't seem to have in our collection like "Low Rider" and "Get Ready". Plus, I love the dancing scene in the movie, so whenever I hear David Bowie's "Golden years", all I can think about is Heath Ledger slinking around. It's definitly worth the money!!
