Review

A strange suite of music ranging from the dramatic to the quirky. It would be hard to summarise this soundtrack effectively, and would be best used as fillers for those parts of the adventure where nothing else seems suitable. The first track, however, is definitely out of the question.

I wouldn't recommend this soundtrack at all except that if one needs a really quirky track, this soundtrack has plenty of them. This highlights Kamen's versatility, as Don Juan DeMarco is far different from any of his previous scores such as The Three Musketeers and Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (there are similarities though). Most of the tracks vary from mood to mood too much to make them effective.
