    1. Prologue (Film Version) / Anvil Of Crom (03:38)
    2. Riddle Of Steel / Riders Of Doom (05:23)

    4. Column Of Sadness / Wheel Of Pain (04:09)
    5. Pit Fights * (02:45)
    6. Prologue (Original Version) (01:03)
    7. Atlantean Sword (04:00)
    8. Wolf Witch * (03:21)
    9. Theology / Civilization (03:04)
    10. The Street Of Deviants * / Hopefuls At The Tower Of Set * (01:28)
    11. The Tower Of Set * / Snake Attack * / Las Cantigas De Santa Maria (05:21)

    Simply classic

    For those of you who aren't too fond of orchestra music, you don't know what you're missing. There are plenty of good albums these days featuring this kind of music, and Basil Poledouris's musical score to the original 1982 motion picture Conan: The Barbarian is definitely one of them. Honestly, one can't help but enjoy the deep, illustrative instrumentals of this soundtrack. From Prologue/Anvil of Crom to Orphans of Doom/The Awakening, all twelve of these songs truly portray the events of this almost forgotten classic of a movie. Personally, I can do without Column of Sadness/Wheel of Pain for the loud, irritating scratching of the violins, but the rest of the disc provides just the right kind of inspiration I need when writing my own fantasy novels. I especially enjoy the narrated introduction of the prologue, as it gives a nice storybook feel not only to the song itself, but also to the album as a whole. Similarly, the dramatic surge of sound that comes forth in both Riddle of Steel/Riders of Doom and Battle of the Mounds pt. 1 perfectly illustrates Conan's bold, daring escapades. In short, this is one motion picture soundtrack that fans of good fantasy deserve to become familiar with.

    Divine Inspiration

    Basil Poledouris is without a doubt one of the great composers of our time. The Conan soundtrack, possibly his finest work, hosts and array of delicate thunder, pulsating like the blood beating in the barbarian's veins. Throughout the film, we are reminded of the opera, a fusion of cinema and song which to this day has not been equalled. As a writer, I listened to this music over and over again while composing my novel, Grecian Rune (PublishAmerica, 2004), as well as the countless illustrations I designed. In fact, I have been listening to this music for inspiration for well over 17 years now. This is THE Fantasy soundtrack......there are many greats, but this one is the BEST. From the opening score to the ending credits, no other music on tap elicits the bravado, the love, lust, and passion, the malice and hatred, in a way that Poledouris has done. This music is as timeless as Robert E. Howard's character, and will live on in hearts and minds forever.....
