Anyone who's seen the movie knows that the music and the movie itself are inseparable--you can't have one without the other. The two flow together like a rushing river over its smooth, water-worn stones. But you can't fully appreciate the beauty of the music with all that action (or just chemistry between characters) on the screen. You have to buy the soundtrack for that. This is one of my very favorite soundtracks of all time, and I am a true music fan who listens to just about everything but rap--from Christian rock to Celtic folk. Buy it today, and get ready to immerse yourself in music at its own finest. . . . When you're upset, play "Jessica's Theme" and it will soothe you. When you need to wake up, on the other hand, put on "Jim's Ride"!

This beautiful soundtrack from the wonderful family film "The Man From Snowy River" is one of the most memorable movie soundtracks ever composed. Every time I listen to it, I am swept to turn of the century Australia, to a wild and dangerous world being settled by people of courage and heart.

The music, while lovely on it's own (I have told my daughter that she must have "Jessica's Theme" in her wedding - it's a good thing she loves it too!), will, in my mind, always be tied strongly to the film itself and the wonderful characters we met there. Jim, Jessica, Clancy and the others seem to float through the music, and I can almost hear the crack of the whip, and see the snow flying under running hooves.

Every time I listen to the soundtrack, I want to see the film again. Twenty years after their release, I think that says something about both of them. The little rift of 'Waltzing Matilda" worked into "End Titles" almost always brings a few tears to my eyes, and makes me think of the pride the Australian people must have in their heritage.

I wholeheartedly agree with the other reviews about how beautiful the music is in this movie. I can honestly say that it is some of the most incredibly beautiful music I have ever heard. I can listen to this music over and over again, and never tire of it. It makes me want to move to Australia, and take my horse out and gallop her through the mountains, just like Jim Craig does in the movie! This evocative music will never stop touching my heart, and I will enjoy the beauty of it forever. Thank you, Bruce Rowland, for bringing this incredible music into our lives.

I simply cannot say enough about the music on this CD, or the movie. In fact, I'm using one of the songs (Jessica's Theme) as the processional for my wedding...
I've never seen another movie where the music matches the scenes of the movie so perfectly. One of my all time favorite soundtracks to one of my all time favorite movies! I higly recommend not only the soundtrack, but the movie, the sequel & the soundtrack to the sequel!!

This music truly moved me. I owned the vinyl, but had not listened to this soundtrack for years. This music fom Bruce Rowland fills the soul with it's powerful orchestration. One can almost feel the wind in our face and hear the deafening sound of the horses racing by in the opening track and again in The Chase. A majestic feeling envelopes when listening to Jim Brings In The Brumbies. Romantic and touching are Jessica's Sonata and Henry Dies/Farewell To Frew. This CD is a MUST for any music lover! Rowland's film score moves me to tears with it's sheer beauty! I shall never tire of it.

This soundtrack is possibly one of the best complete works I can remember. The music is beautiful and complex, but can be loved by even the casual listener. As a whole this album ranks among the top for modern instrumental music. The emotion and imagination this music ignites is equivalent to other instrumental masterpieces such as Manheim Steamroller's "Save the Animals". I can't wait to listen to it again.

A Kid's Review on July 26, 2000
It's the best soundtrack I've ever heard! If you like the samples you should get the soundtrack. And if you like the soundtrack you should consider getting the movie.I give it five stars for variety of instuments. And that isn't all.

Oh, this CD is gorgeous! I've been listening to it for many years. And I'd definitely give it more than 5 stars if I could! If you love beautiful music, you'll love both of "The Man From Snowy River" soundtracks.
