Boy, was I happy this soundtrack was available on CD. As with so many 1980's movies W-I-L-L-O-W has an excellent musical score. I had not really been a big James Horner fan until I remembered it was him that wrote this great score. Its better than COCOON. The first track "Elora Danan" is my favourite because it contains the main title theme and I so love that panflute which plays so strong there and throughout the CD. The soundtrack has wonderful celtic overtones mainly because of the use of instruments like the panflute and the celtic bagpipes. I also love the part in track 7 "Bavmorda's Spell is Cast" near the end which is the part where Madmartigan defeats General Kael, a memorable villain. Track 8 "Willow the Sorcerer" is magical too containing all the themes along with the excellent Nelwyn music. I don't think there is any of the score not on the CD, which is great. W-I-L-L-O-W is a brilliant soundtrack to have in any collection. I am now collecting more James Horner film scores.

Frank Kimbrough's piano and Joe Locke's vibes mesh together exquisitely in this achingly beautiful musical offering. The interplay -- mostly the two of them but occasionally supplemented by reedman Tim Ries and percussionist Jeff Ballard -- is richly textured and inspired. Kimbrough's and Locke's original compositions are sublime in their range of expression. This is an album you will never hear the same way twice.

If you thought the Braveheart score was good, think again! James Horner's score to Willow is classic movie music! It contains one of the greatest main movie themes I have ever heard! I just love Horner's choice to use a pan flute! It sounds beautiful beyond words! I was so relieved to find this soundtrack on CD! Mr. Horner, I want to congratulate you on a job VERY well done! I will be listening to this score for many, many years down the road!

I remember when I bought the soundtrack to the Rocketeer...it was by James Horner, some guy I never heard of before, and I loved it.
After getting the soundtrack to Willow, I'd never forget that name again! Not only Horner's all-time best ever, but in my opinion the best film score ever written!!! You've probably already heard some of it, even if you never saw the film--Madmartigan's theme has been used as background music for trailers for adventure films ever since! And, though I shouldn't say so, James Horner knows when he has a good thing, and has quoted from himself, putting little bits from Willow in some of his other film work. :o/ If you like movie soundtracks, then this one is an indispensible addition to your collection.

This score is hailed by many fans and critics as Horner's greatest adventure score. I agree that its one of the best. The problem I have with choosing Horner's best score is difficult because the `80s was Horner's best composing decade.

Between Williams' Star Wars and Shore's Lord of the Rings, we have Willow. I haven't seen the film yet but the music conveys the message of epic adventure. Wonderfully performed-as always-by the London Symphony Orchestra, Willow stands on par with Star Wars and Lord of the Rings.

"Elora Danan" opens with chorus much like The Land Before Time accompanied by tense moments before we hear the main theme played by the flute at the 2 ½ minute mark. After the main theme's performance, the track becomes dark and tense and leads up to soft, childish music.

"Escape From the Tavern" is a sweeping, action song carrying the energetic version of Willow's theme.

"Willow's Theme" is probably the best of the bunch because its Willow's theme on its own.

"Bavmorda's Spell Is Cast" is a colossal track lasting over 18 minutes long! There's much diversity in this track ranging from panic scoring to mellow to tense action.

This album definitely belongs with your Star Wars and Lord of the Rings collection.

Other adventure scores by Horner I recommend are: Krull, Mask of Zorro, Legend of Zorro and Braveheart.

Also, discover CutThroat Island, one of the greatest swashbuckling adventure scores in music history.

Willow is one of James Horner's greatest scores. The score is so diverse. "Elora Danan" is the first track you hear and it is orchestra at it's finest. It is a score that sticks with the movie. Tracks like "Elora Danan" and "Willow's Journey Begins" are slower and soothing. And then tracks like "Escape from the Tavern" and "Willows Theme" are fast paced and you feel the energy of the music. The wonderful thing about this score is that it fits the movie terrifically.
Aside from "Titanic", "Battle Beyond the Stars", and "Glory", I'd say that this is one of James Horner's greatest works.

Although not my favorite Horner film score (Glory holds that spot), I've come to enjoy this score a great deal. It has taken longer to reach the point where I'm eager to hear it again, but Horner imparts a rich, emotional tone to his music that many film composers can't or won't capture. Since I enjoy classical music, I also enjoy film music that partakes of the rich sonorities of classical music, and this one fits that bill nicely.
