2 stars Who could have imagined that we would have seen a Tangerine Dream album whose longest track is 3:20 minutes? This is the opening track of the n-th TD soundtrack, recorded in 1988 and released in 1991, so belonging to the 80s.

The opener as movie title is not bad but also not special.

Haven't seen the movie I can't tell if the music is at least in line with the images. What I can say is that should they have made each track fading into the next, spending some effort in the transitions, it could have been a decent album.

As it is I can just appreciate some short moment here and there. "Of Cads and Caddies"is decent but it fades out too quickly like Edgar Froese has had problems with his intestine while he was recording.

In few words, this is a useless release, a collector item which would have better remained in the label's closets. The fact that it has been released after 3 years is a symptom of the label wish to release something under the TD brand.

A collection of short jingles, some even good. Nothing more
