3 stars This is another movie soundtrack by Tangerine Dream. Globally, it does not very much sound like an experimental film music: the tracks are rather down to earth and have resemblances with the ones on the Livemiles and the Tyger albums.

The first track on side 1 could fit well on the Tyger album: the same kind of female vocals and the keyboards sound exactly like on that album. The track 2 consists in floating keyboards streams that seem to go nowhere. The track 3 is a more accessible rock song, with its fast beat, its winner's style keyboards, its male vocals and its flashy electric guitar. The track 4 sounds like the floating keyboards on the Near Dark album: there are just floating keyboards.

The first track on side 2 is a catchy song, with a warm Chaka Khan-esque lead vocals; the keyboards are quite varied and delightful: this song is probably the best one on this record, reminding me Eurhythmics' "Sweet dreams". The next track is absolutely pure and beautiful: a perfect combination of a flashy electric guitar and fresh & dreamy keyboards, through a fast beat. Then there are cold floating keyboards expressly made for the film itself; it seems there is a huge choir through it. The last track is very melodic and has a mix of the Livemiles and the Tyger albums.

Rating: 3.5 stars
