Editorial Reviews

Product Description

The score for Michael Mann's Last of the Mohicans is one of the most acclaimed works of modern film music. Composed by Trevor Jones and Randy Edelman, these 16 tracks wonderfully convey the scope and majesty of the Academy Award winning film. Features "I Will Find You" by Clannad.

Amazon.com

This is a production rife with odd pairings: English actor Daniel Day-Lewis joining up with the Mohawks; James Fenimore Cooper adapted by Michael Mann; disparate composers Trevor Jones and Randy Edelman teaming up. This last pairing seems a suspicious attempt to endow the score of this modern film adaptation of a junior high school literary evergreen with both a golden age of Hollywood dramatic bent (Jones) and a '90s-slick guitar-muzak veneer (Edelman). A strange amalgam that doesn't quite work. --Jerry McCulley

5.0 out of 5 stars AN ACHINGLY BEAUTIFUL MOVIE SOUNDTRACK... February 23, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I had never before bought a soundtrack for a movie that wasn't a musical. This was an exception. Who couldn't help but buy this CD? It is simply one of the most beautiful movie soundtracks of all time, as it perfectly conveys the romance, urgency, and adventure of the movie. It resonates and soars, capturing the essence of the film.
Beautifully orchestrated, tracks one through nine were composed by Trevor Jones, and his use of drums, brass, and strings to convey the sweeping saga of the movie is masterful and full of powerful, pulse pounding emotion. Yet, at the same time the music is often poignant.
There is a seamless transition to tracks ten through fifteen which were composed by Randy Edelman and are likewise beautiful, but lighter and more ephemeral in tone. The music is more hopeful and mellow, yet at the same time wondrously melodic.
The collaborative efforts of the two composers have produced a timeless masterpiece. This is a CD to treasure.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent...except for a few things. January 8, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I completely agree with the person who said that they did not appreciate that "Promentory" was cut. I also wish that the end credits from the movie would've been included on the CD. What a gorgeous piece of music. That would've made it so complete. The endings on some of the tracks seem abrupt, like they had to tie it up really quick in order for it to fit on the soundtrack. That kind of bugged me a little. The Last of the Mohicans is my favorite movie of all time (I cannot count how many times I've seen it). It moved me (and continues to move me) emotionally, and it really takes a lot for me to listen to the soundtrack without getting depressed. Pathetic, I know, but I can't help it. I give it four stars because no doubt, the music is beautiful (my favorites being Cora, The Courier, and I Will Find You), but for the omissions, I had to take away a star.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Greatest Soundtrack from the Greatest Movie Ever! September 30, 2002
Format:Audio CD
This OST consists of 16 incredibly beautiful and deeply moving music that complemented scenes from the movie perfectly. Trevor Jones composed the first 9 tracks of the album, while Randy Edelman wrote Tracks 10 - 15 (Track 16 is a short song by the group Clannad). Both Jones and Edelman did a brilliant job on the album, although Jones's "Main Title" and another track, "Promentory" remain the most memorable numbers (and my favourites). I also like Jones's "The Kiss" and "The Glade Part II".
A couple of Edelman's compositions which I find truly beautiful and outstanding are "The Courier" and "Cora".
I play this soundtrack every morning before leaving for work and first thing upon returning home. The music soothes the soul and makes me think (and dream) of the movie a lot, especially of the handsome and heroic Uncas, who's my favourite character in the movie. In my mind and heart, "Promentory" will always be Uncas's song (it recalls vividly to the mind the poignant scene towards the end of the movie of Uncas climbing the cliffs determinedly and fearlessly in order to rescue his love, Alice).
How I adore the movie and its music! They will remain my favourites FOREVER.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good BUT..... September 6, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This Cd was much of what I expected. However I was severely disappointed when It came to I will find you- Clannad, which was one of the major factors in me getting this rather than just picking up the score at my local department store. In the movie this particular song is several minutes long with a number of verses, but on the cd they give you 1:42 which is just the first verse, you don't even get the verse for which the song was named.

4.0 out of 5 stars Powerful! 4 and a half stars! November 17, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
While I don't rate this quite a five star score, it's pretty close. I didn't have any interest in the soundtrack, and haven't seen the movie; but when I followed a link off another of Edelman's scores (Dragonheart, which is a definite must have masterpiece of brilliance!) and read all the good reviews, I decided to give it a try. I did have some misgivings though, and didn't expect to be really wowed by it, as so many others were. I hadn't even heard of Trevor Jones before, and wasn't sure if I would like his stuff. I'd really liked Edelman's stuff though, so I figured at least his tracks would be good.
Well, when I received it and first played it, I was grabbed from the very beginning, and taken on a ride. From the beautiful and triumphant main theme, to the captivating romance themes laced with celtic violin (or fiddle) playing, to the driving, but not obnoxious action cues, I thouroughly enjoyed the listening experience. I would dare say I even liked it better than the highly touted Braveheart soundtrack, although I must admit that I do not own that one, and have not heard it as much as others. The funny thing was, I got it mainly with Edelman's pieces in mind, and was not overly impressed with those. They were not bad, but they were not nearly as good as some of his other works. They were a lot more subdued, especially compared to Jones' tracks earlier. At times it was a bit repettitive, but not really bad. While I don't really have anything bad to say about this soundtrack, it just doesn't quite get the full 5 stars in my book. But when you have about 60 scores, there's a lot more competiotion. Still, it is a VERY good soundtrack, and definitely worth getting if you like pretty, powerful, romantic, and moving music!
