2 stars Max result with the lesser effort. This time, instead of writing five tracks for the side A and repeating them together for the side B, he writes a single track good for a 3 minutes radio edit and extends it to cover 45 minutes of the same soup with different sauces.

The main theme is not bad, able to capture the icy ambient of the movie. The music was great in commenting the speachless story of a dozen of dogs abandoned in the frozen antarctic winter, but that's all.

A simple and captivating melody based on four chords can't be repeated for 45 minutes just increasing or decreasing the tempo. It can work fine for the movie, by taking different pitches and tempos when they are most appropriate, but not for a whole album.

As Chariots of Fire, this doesn't deserve more than two stars.
