The soundtrack for Ladyhawke is often mocked as being "too 80s" or "too modern" or "too much synthesizer." Personally, I love the modern instrumentation mixed in with more classical orchestration. It just works. The music is certainly, in parts, anachronistic to the film, but not to the extent of other soundtracks like that of "A Knight's Tale" (starring the late Heath Ledger). The Ladyhawke soundtrack brings emotional highs and lows to an already visually and thematically powerful film, one of the greatest romances of all times.

Watch the movie, don't obsess on whether the music is "too 80s" or not, but rather, just let it carry you through the movie. You'll see that the music just works for this great film. On its own, it does just as well.

The soundtrack received a lot of criticism over the years. OK, I get it. Why use a highly synthesized soundtrack for a medieval fantasy film for which purists would have preferred pan flutes?

Anyway, the producers recruited the team of Andrew Powell to compose and Alan Parsons to engineer the soundtrack. Together they produced a stylish piece of electronica that at least for me really works. IMO it provides an unusual dimension to the film, including an energy that adds considerably to the overall experience. All right. I admit it, I am also an unabashed fan of the Alan Parsons Project. I own all of their albums and loved this soundtrack when it came out. There, I said it!

I bought the soundtrack on cassette tape years ago when the movie was still young. That tape was sadly lost in the meantime. I've been waiting and checking and hoping that the Ladyhawke soundtrack would someday be available digitally, and now it is!

You should treat yourself to this soundtrack if you are a fan of films based during medieval times, or you are a fan of the Alan Parsons Project, of you like fantasy films, or you like the young Matthew Broderick, Michelle Pfieffer, or Ruger Hauer, or all of the above.

Thanks! Thanks! Thanks!

5 stars.
