Prog Reviewer
3 stars The genesis of this album has already been depicted by fellow reviewers. The result of this is that all these short tracks put together don't make any unity except that the whole sounds pretty much alike.

Too many very short tracks are also a weak point IMHHO; so, you'd better be ready to listen to a collage or mosaic of short pieces put together without too much care. My favorite is the excellent "Alternative 3". It is a truly emotional track which conveys a fantastic tranquility.

This entire album is purely spacey (or ambient) music. I quite like this generally. And "Music For Films" as such is not a bad album. It is just that I would have hoped some more development. Anyway, for those who love electronic prog, I guess that there is no harm done with this work.

It is quite pleasant all the way through even if brilliant pieces are alien (except the one I have already mentioned). It is good background music, but no more. One of the tracks which break with the overall mood is the scary and dehumanized "M386".

Three stars is my rating.
