Dragonheart
Randy Edelman

Review

Randy Edelman -- composer for Come See the Paradise and co-composer for The Last of the Mohicans -- comes up with another good score. Generally the score is light-hearted, more comical than fantastic, though it does have a few gems. The second track is absolutely beautiful and highlights one of the best segments in the movie.

Good tracks for action-orientated segments include the forth and the eleventh. The rest are more banal. This is definitely a fantasy soundtrack, not only because of the content of the movie but the style of music. Good for descriptions and events, and less so for background music.

A beautiful score, but there are better selections for roleplaying.
