The Man in the Iron Mask

Review

A light and fluffy score from part of the team from The Rock and under the influence of the composer of The Lion King and Crimson Tide. Most of the music is played using sythesised instruments, though the use of a male chorus gives it a bit more depth. Overall it is a good score, especially for fantasy roleplaying music. The liberal use of "court music" and a dash of action make it well suited for high adventure and exciting adventures. The lengths of each of the tracks make it more suitable for used with events and descriptions. There is a goodly amount of music, and much to be enjoyed.
