A cd for love! All songs seem to build around the main melody of the only song with words. If one pictures Johnny Depp while listening - yum!

A haunting melody winds through it.

"This soundtrack is golden because it is different from most in that the theme "Have you ever loved a woman?" weaves in and out of each arrangement in the entire soundtrack. Having said that, the music is definitely NOT redundant. Though this was a complaint from a reviewer here, I felt each track unique and able stand on its own merit. Most soundtracks require a knowledge of the movie before you can understand it, but every "Don Juan DeMarco" track in the CD has a beginning and an ending. It has the feel and magic of an opera. I have recommended the CD to many others and have given it was a gift. It was/is enjoyed by everyone in my little world."
A real Spanish-flavoured "Don Juan"

"I liked this CD really much, and not only because Bryan Adam's song. It is very good indeed, but, as a matter of fact, the incomplete Spanish version that appears in the Soundtrack is even better. If it had been longer ..... But, nonetheless, what is really important is the incidental music, and it depicts very well the Spanish style to which Don Juan is related. Even though in theory the main character is supposed to be Mexican, and thinks to have lived in the Viceroyalty of New Spain (Mexico), most of the music is pure Spanish, and even the great Paco de Lucía plays the guitar. The musical work of Mr. Kamen cannot be better. And when the time comes to use Mexican melodies, the composer knows how to make differences between the musical traditions of both Spain and Mexico, and there is no missunderstanding nor confusion. Only Alfred Newman composed comparable Spanish music for Hollywood."
