I have only just ordered this CD and it hasn't arrived yet but I just know it's going to be fantastic because while watching the movie it's impossible to notice how powerfull and well put together the soundtrack is. This belongs with some of the classics. Riddle of steel is the best. Youtube it!

From the opening bars of the the first piece to the fading notes of the last, this is an epic piece full of passion and fire..
The soundtrack brings the film itself to life. It fits beautfully with the scenes and moods during the entire adventure.
At times the music roars with life and at others it is quiet and mournful..
If you only get one soundtrack in your life, get this..

POLEDOUIS PRODUCES AGAIN!

CONAN THE BARBARIAN SOUNDTRACK
The late, great Basil Poledouris produced many excellent film soundtracks throughout his distinguished career (ROBOCOP, THE HUNT FOR RED OCTOBER etc) but this one, for CONAN THE BARBARIAN, is my favourite.
There are twelve arrangements here of various length and each sets the mood perfectly for the film it accompanies. We are in no doubt, listening to each piece, that we have entered a fantasy world - and a rather bleak, brutal one at that!
RIDERS OF DOOM congers up images of mounted raiding parties while the LOVE THEME is both tender and emotional. At THE BATTLE OF THE MOUNDS, the music successfully builds the tension as the enemies draw near, then explodes into exciting life with full force once battle is joined. CIVILIZATION provides a sweeping fanfare of sound while, in contrast, WHEEL OF PAIN is a slow and laborious lament detailing a life of continual drudgery.
My only real criticism is that this is not the complete soundtrack as some notable music - such as Conan's arrival with the worshippers at the Mountain Of Power and his subsequent capture by Thulsa Doom's minions - is absent.
Nevertheless, this is still a top notch soundtrack from a true professional which, despite now being over a quarter of a century old, will proudly sit on the shelves of any classic film CD collection!
