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.

First, let me clarify - I absolutely LOVE this soundtrack. I've had it on cassette tape for years. It has always been one of my favorite movie themes (and it's a great track to exercise to).

So why four stars? That's for the overall quality of THIS recording. I'm delighted to finally see this available electronically - for years, all you could get was a "remastered" version that lacked the spark and verve of the original. In the interim, I had my old cassette converted to digital. And... I have to say that the sound quality of my converted cassette recording is far better than the quality of this version. This version is a bit flat and tinny. If you're listening to this theme for the first time, you probably won't even notice, and, hey, it's all we have. But if you're one of those who, like me, has hung on to your old record or tape, don't throw it away quite yet, because this recording doesn't QUITE measure up.

But it's a lot better than nothing!

I have found this soundtrack to be very polarizing to many people. They either love it or hate it. Those who hate it, hate it because they think the rock music doesn't fit with the time period of the film. hose who love it are usually Alan Parsons Project fans. The music was written by Andrew Powell, who has been the long-time orchestrator for the APP, and the soundtrack was produced and engineered by Alan Parsons.Most of the musicians who play on this soundtrack are APP alums. I am a fan of the Alan Parsons Project, but that is not why I love this soundtrack. To me, this music can stand on its own apart from the film. It is an enjoyable listening experience. I really think the combination of electric and Orchestral instruments work well on this soundtrack. Powell has written some great music here, and Parsons production work is stellar. Take the movie out of the equation and give this soundtrack a listen. The music will bring you in, and you will find yourself humming the themes to yourself afterward.

The Ladyhawke soundtrack is beyond unique in many ways. It drives some folks crazy while others, like myself, love it. I just wish that this album had felt a little more complete. The soundtrack is about 30 minutes long which doesn't seem long enough considering the length of the movie. Still, it's something, and I love the music so much it was worth the buy.
