Rob Roy
Carter Burwell

Review

This soundtrack is very similar to Braveheart (due to similar subject material I suppose) but has a few noticeable differences. Burwell has effectively used drums throughout the score to create a heart-pounding melody of music in which to inspire both characters and Games Masters. This is another operatic score best suited for grand, sweeping adventures.
