Even despite the movie’s gaping historical inaccuracies and Kevin Costner’s less-than-robust attempt at a British accent, I still like the movie Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. I especially love its sweeping score by Michael Kamen, who is to my mind one of the more underrated film composers of the last few decades. His death — eleven years ago, and the same year as Jerry Goldsmith’s and Elmer Bernstein’s passings — was especially cruel, because he should have had a few decades’ worth of music left inside him. I’ll always wonder what we might have heard.
Anyway, some kind soul uploaded the entire score album to Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves to YouTube (minus the wildly overplayed Bryan Adams song), so here it is. Enjoy!
