2 stars This is one of the many movie soundtracks released by Tangerine Dream in the '80s. Actually Christopher Franke was still in duo with Edgar Froese.

I haven't seen the movie, but I guess it was quite a sad story. The music is extremely melodic, with no rhythm at all. Apart of few tracks like in example "The Hospital Room" whose first half reminded me of Camel's RAIN DANCES, there's very few in this album that scores only 33 minutes in length, also considering that some tracks contain reprises and quotes from the main theme.

"More Pills" is another 1 minute track which could have been extended, but unfortunately it remains just a sort of false start. I mean that taken one by one they are decent, but none of them can be remembered after the first listen, if not for the title track which has several reprises.

This music was likely appropriate for a movie which, I have read, is about a nurse in a war zone getting involved in drugs. From a progressive point of view it's absolutely non-essential. Not the worst thing released by TD in that period, but it can be forgotten in the huge production of this kind in these years.
