Peaceful one moment, exciting the next
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Anyone who's seen the movie knows that the music and the movie itself are inseparable--you can't have one without the other. The two flow together like a rushing river over its smooth, water-worn stones. But you can't fully appreciate the beauty of the music with all that action (or just chemistry between characters) on the screen. You have to buy the soundtrack for that. This is one of my very favorite soundtracks of all time, and I am a true music fan who listens to just about everything but rap--from Christian rock to Celtic folk. Buy it today, and get ready to immerse yourself in music at its own finest. . . . When you're upset, play "Jessica's Theme" and it will soothe you. When you need to wake up, on the other hand, put on "Jim's Ride"!"
The Sound of A Film

This beautiful soundtrack from the wonderful family film "The Man From Snowy River" is one of the most memorable movie soundtracks ever composed. Every time I listen to it, I am swept to turn of the century Australia, to a wild and dangerous world being settled by people of courage and heart.

The music, while lovely on it's own (I have told my daughter that she must have "Jessica's Theme" in her wedding - it's a good thing she loves it too!), will, in my mind, always be tied strongly to the film itself and the wonderful characters we met there. Jim, Jessica, Clancy and the others seem to float through the music, and I can almost hear the crack of the whip, and see the snow flying under running hooves.

Every time I listen to the soundtrack, I want to see the film again. Twenty years after their release, I think that says something about both of them. The little rift of 'Waltzing Matilda" worked into "End Titles" almost always brings a few tears to my eyes, and makes me think of the pride the Australian people must have in their heritage."
Just Great Music

"This soundtrack is possibly one of the best complete works I can remember. The music is beautiful and complex, but can be loved by even the casual listener. As a whole this album ranks among the top for modern instrumental music. The emotion and imagination this music ignites is equivalent to other instrumental masterpieces such as Manheim Steamroller's "Save the Animals". I can't wait to listen to it again."
