   I have to agree on this one, odin2121.  



*Glances up to see both Conan soundtracks high up on his CD tower*



   I don't think the similarity to Carl Orff is an accident.  This movie was made in the years immediately following Excalibur.  The triumphant use of his Fortuna Imperiatrix Mundi (from Carmina Burana) (sp?) created a benchmark in fantasy movie soundtracks, IMHO.



   Ironically, some have ridiculed Pouledoris for a weak Conan soundtrack.  In fact, the reviewer in Jugdes Guild's Dungeoneer magazine really hated it.   :(   (Although his other criticisms were right on the money.)



    I have heard pieces of this great soundtrack used in a number of places since, including sports broadcasts and commercials.



    Back when my ears could stand background music, this was a favorite soundtrack to many a gaming session.   8)

"Yup...As expected."   :roll:
