3 stars As ''Ricochet'' was the first TD live album, ''Sorcerer'' was their first soundtrack. And they will release an awful bunch of them in their amazing long career. I have not seen this version of the movie, but it was a remake of a great French movie from the late fifties (Le Salaire De La Peur'') which is a fave of mine and well worth a viewing if you are ever interested.

There are some true TD moments here (''Search'', ''Betrayal'') but the ones who were waiting for some scary stuff won't be satisfied: there is nothing too scary to expect from this album since the story is not at all linked with terror or devil stories. It was just a great thriller, for sure.

I would say that this is a ''cheap'' TD effort. Some sort of second tier. Let's not forget that the band released several major albums from '74 through '76 and that this entry can't be compared to these great works.

There is nothing weak in here, but the grandeur of their major and previous recordings can't be felt. Still, ''Vengeance'', ''Grind'' and 'Abyss'' above all do have lots of qualities.

But the global feel is that this is somewhat a lesser TD album. Still good but with some unfinished taste. Three stars.
