5.0 out of 5 stars Great soundtrack where Pop/Rock meets common scoring. August 23, 1998
Format:Audio CD
I fell in love with the movie the first time I saw it. Now, the same has happened when I first listened the movie's soundtrack-album. Composer Andrew Powell has teamed up with producer Alan Parsons and many of his fellow musicians from The Alan Parsons Project to create one of the best soundtracks ever heard. The music is a mixture between powerful 'rock' instrumentals which sound remarkably like APP, and a more common orchestral score, which is capable of expressing the different moods of the film (from dangerous, sad, to extremely romantic) extremely well. Furthermore, there are some really medieval sounding tracks on this CD, e.g. a gregorian chant. This music lets the listener re-experience the film in the mind, with all of its moods. What more could one possibly want from a soundtrack?!? The only weak track is the last one: 'Ladyhawke Theme: Single Version'. This must have been included due to purely commercial reasons, but I personally don't like the track and think that the first track (Main Title) would be a much better single from this album. Wrapping up: This album is an absolute must for fans of the movie and APP-fans alike. All others are invited to give it a try: they won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars How could you not like this! February 2, 2000
Format:Audio CD
When I first saw the movie, I fell in love with the movie and the music. Music has always been a major part of my life. I bought the sound-track on cassett as son as it hit the store. Then My husband bought me the movie. Both have capture my heart, and now our 13 year old son has fallen too. The cassett has been played so much that it wore out and now we have the CD. My favorite music is when the hawk flys over the lake.....it wish there was an entire score just for that track

5.0 out of 5 stars I was totally blown away!!! September 24, 1999
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album is a definite must for anyone who likes music (particularly for APP and Ladyhawke fans). Alan Parsons and Andrew Powell couldn't have done better in making a fantastical score to go along with a fantastic movie. This is music you can listen to at any time; it gets inside you. It was almost like I was actually experiencing the music, not just the sound. The feeling of the music was inside me. I would definitely recommend this album.

I am a huge fan of the film Ladyhawke and ever since I first saw it I fell in love with the music.

5.0 out of 5 stars gives flight to hearts February 26, 2006
Format:Audio CD
some reviewers seem to want soundtracks to match movie content, but the very different sounds in the movie astounded me..this movie drew me in, and in the soundtrack i can hear the horse's hoof beats, the hawk's flight, lover's heartbreak and even the sword fight in track 19 "navarre and marquet duel"-you can hear the clang of swords in the music...alan parsons had done something no other track had often done...the movie is passionately loved by it's fans, and the music score only enhanced our enchantment...ramantic fables never had it so good

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for APP fans! January 11, 1999
Format:Audio CD
I just got on the Net and have been looking for this CD for years, ever since I saw the movie. While watching "Ladyhawke" I kept telling my wife that it sounded like APP, of that there could be no mistake. As the credits rolled my opinion was verifyed. Since that day I have sought out the soundtrack, since I have everything that APP has put out. I found it once on vinyl, but at that point I has long since abandoned my turntable in favor of the CD format. I'll be very pleased to hear this music again, coming from my stereo.

5.0 out of 5 stars Electronics made to match medieval days July 7, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Powell and Parsons amazingly make their electronic sound work, and work well with this medieval story of mysticism, love, and adventure. The real hallmark of its success as a soundtrack is that it supports and enhances the entire viewing experience without distracting the viewer.
The range of music from upbeat action to romantic tones are great. This is a great album to read, think, drive, and work to. Give it a listen!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Alan Parsons Project fans August 14, 2010
Format:Audio CD
First, if you are a fan of the Alan Parsons Project, especially their instrumental and orchestral works and passages, you will love this soundtrack. Andrew Powell is arguably the third most important member of APP (behind Alan Parsons, and Eric Wolfson), and these compositions show how true that is, and how much he contributed to their sound.

As to the score - as in on film - this was one of the most roundly criticized film scores ever, with some critics calling it the worst score in history. Why? The general belief is that because Powell used drums, guitars and keyboards in this score for some "rock" moments, it was not true to the period the film was set in. I'm going to dispel this nonsense, hopefully once and for all.

1. The movie is not exactly a period piece once you look at it, at all. It's a fun movie, with quite modern characters. This is NOT a Merchant-Ivory type film, or Kenneth Branaugh Shakespeare interpretation, where painstaking detail is put into making the production, story, and language reflect the era. No. The costumes, the hair styles, the dialog, it's all been fairly modernly interpreted, just in a 15th century setting. The filmmakers made no attempt to hide this. No one in their right mind went into the theater expecting it to be a true historical reenactment. It's about as historically accurate as the Princess Bride. This issue was perfectly fine with most every moviegoer, and no one questioned it. Thus why question the music?

2. Many critics seem to think all films should be scored exclusively with a symphony orchestra, a la John Williams. Well, I'm sorry to say, but back in the 14th and 15th century most orchestral instruments we are aware of today, such as violins, cellos, woodwinds, etc. DID NOT EVEN EXIST.
