Album Review

For a film dominated by offbeat musical numbers by the likes of Tom Waits and Nick Cave, as well as a cover of "Livin' la Vida Loca" by Eddie Murphy and Antonio Banderas, the fact that an original score even exists is impressive to say the least. Varese Sarabande rescues composer Harry Gregson-Williams' orchestral score for the hit animated film, which at a scant 40 minutes barely has time to register — it was heard even less in the actual film. That's too bad, because Williams, who also worked on the first Shrek, has great fun with the genre. Choirs, Renaissance-style marches, and big-band numbers co-exist with nary an awkward segue, resulting in a finished product that's undeniably superficial, but as mischievous and likeable as the ogre himself.

Customer Reviews

Excellent Soundtrack

After I watched this film I was determined to get the soundtrack; good work by Harry Gregson-Williams, his instrumentation really pulls you into the crusades acoustically, and the variation of the music is impressive, ranging from simple vocal pieces (wonderfully done), to full out orchestral ones.

Nice Music for an Underated Film

The best soundtrack for an historical film in a long time. (See the Director's cut of the film for a much better explanation of Orlando's character and history).

Great Album

I love this particular score; it is one of his best works...say did anyone else notice that the official album review is talking about Shrek and not Kingdom of Heaven?
