Its production budget was dwarfed by its successors, 'Brian' and 'Meaning of Life', but in many ways the quality of writing is higher and seems closer to the Python ideal, whatever that was.
There are the gratuitous appeals to schoolboy humour -- the gore of the knight with no limbs suggesting they call it a draw, and the crude sounds of the wrist-wobblers in the rear stalls. But this is the album that also contains the Witch Trial sketch, the Professor of Logic, the "How do you become King, then?" sketch, and the Knights who say Ni.
The high standard of humour isn't always maintained, but the soundtrack added several linking sketches that weren't in the film, and most of them work.

Of all of the Monty Python Re-Issues,this one is by far the biggest rip-off!

The ORIGINAL version of this album is probably Monty Python's FUNNIEST album. But THIS VERSION,is a tepid re-issue,and the "Bonus" material is an insult to fans!

Once more... no "NEW" liner notes. It's a reprint of the entry from "The Monty Python Encyclopedia"(1999). The artwork is not "NEW",it's merely previously seen items from Terry Gilliam's sketch books. The "Bonus" Material consists of "Documentary" which is just the audio portion of Palin & Jones's travelogue from the "Holy Grail" 2-DVD Set! ( Yeah,funny how the visual jokes lose a lot on a C.D.). The other two "bonus" items,"Arthur's Song" & "Run Away Song" ( not to be confused with the "Spamalot" songs of the same names.),are apparently written by Neil Innes,but these versions are NOT Neil Innes performing them. These songs are some male & female voices singing along to an accordian. No credits to identify what these are at all.

Definitely not worth re-purchasing.

There was an actual need for the "soundtrack" album to "Monty Python & The Holy Grail," which allowed us to help memorize key bits of dialogue while waiting for the movie to finally be released on DVD (which was worth the wait just to have the LEGO version of the "Camelot" song). Now, of course, this album can serve as a companion to the original Broadway cast album for "Spamalot," the current hit musical inflicted upon the masses by Eric Idle on behalf of the Pythons.
To be clear, this soundtrack includes much more than what you heard in the original film. After all, this is the Executive CD Edition, a fact that you are reminded of at both the beginning and the end of each "side." Then, before the movie actually "starts" you have a tour of the classic Silbury Hill Theater and a live broadcast from the premier of the film, including a narration of the film's opening and the "You're Using Coconuts" routine. Then they finally shut up and get to the bits from the film. My favorite remains "King Arthur and the 'Old Woman': Lesson in Anarcho-Syndicated Commune," which I tried without success to work into several papers in graduate school. The episode involving "A Witch" is followed by a "Lesson in Logic," which proves, unless you are using intuition, that just because a woman weighs as much as a duck does not prove she is a witch. Not everything is here, with the encounter with the Black Knight being the most obvious omission. But you do have the songs for "Camelot" and "The Tale of Sir Robin," and the almost song from the sequence regarding Sir Lancelot at Swamp Castle.

This cd takes all the best parts of the movie and then add's more bonus clips that wheren't actually in the movie... Overall a very funny way to relive the movie... Especially since not many people have TV's in thier cars it's almost like being able to watch the movie while you drive... I would recommend this for all...

Well taken, Concorde!
CONCORDE: Thank you, sir! Most kind.
LAUNCELOT: And again... Over we go! Good. Steady! And now, the big
one...Ooof! Come on, Concorde!
[thwonk]
CONCORDE: Message for you, sir.
[fwump]
LAUNCELOT: Concorde! Concorde, speak to me! "To whoever finds this
note, I have been imprisoned by my father, who wishes me to marry
against my will. Please, please, please come and rescue me. I am
in the tall tower of Swamp Castle." At last! A call, a cry of
distress! This could be the sign that leads us to the Holy Grail!
Brave, brave Concorde! You shall not have died in vain!
CONCORDE: Uh, I'm-I'm not quite dead, sir.

As laugh-out-loud funny as it's always been, this soundtrack is a must have for any Monty Python fans. With sound clips from some of the most hilarious points of the film, this album is guaranteed to make even the saddest man roll over in a fit of laughter. With tracks like "Castle Aaargh", it's a wonder more psychiatrists dont recommend this as a mild anti-depressant. Side effects may include split sides.

The Cd is extremelly funny! Although the majority of it is extracted from the movie itself, there are some tracks which bring new material...the opening act is hilarious! Buy it!
