I don' t know where to start.....I' m speechless.....that' s how good this music is.There are a lot of French folk music to illustrate the place where the story is set - in 18th century France,at the time of the French Revolution.The music is intensive and dramatic,and as always,Poledouris' surprise us with fantastic complex orchestrations.This time,he mixes 18th century French folk music with symphonic music.The dramatic intensity is assured by the outstanding brass and string section.At some points,dramatic intensity is so powerful that make me grinning like an idiot - check out The Barricades - Funeral Attack.Overall,I can only suggest one thing - go and get it, - with haste!
