Knight Moves

Hard rock for the medieval generation.

Got word that the movie was about a couple of men with sticks on horses, that lent the movie all the action it credits. Listen to its accompanying soundtracks, and, I guarantee you, you'll find that it was the music that won the movie its battle.

An awesome compilation of the better half of rock, kicking off with Queen’s rattling "We Will Rock You", then moving animatedly towards Bachman-Turner Overdrive’s "Taking Care Of Business", and skipping by David Bowie’s groove-laden "Golden Years". And if that doesn’t stimulate your mojo, they’ve gone on and put in Led Zeppelin’s visceral "Ramble On" (a take by Train), "The Boys Are Back In Town" by Thin Lizzy and the riotous "Eye Conqueror" by Third Eye Blind...making this, by far one full-bodied compilation. Happily, Robbie William’s take on another of Queen’s compositions, "We Are The Champions" has turned out great, giving us very little, nay, no reason at all, to complain.
