AllMusic Review by

Lawrence Kasdan's 1985 feature Silverado embraces in full the larger-than-life mythos and six-shooter lyricism of the classical Hollywood western, and Bruce Broughton's epic score is an indelible element of its immersive cinematic experience. Broughton's taut Americana melodies and rich orchestral flourishes vividly conjure the high plains and red rivers of the Wild West, operating in broad, vivid thematic strokes that summon the traditions of Hollywood's golden age -- melodies like "Prelude to a Battle" and "The Stampede" are every bit as evocative as their titles suggest.
