5.0 out of 5 stars Aah, nostalgia... 23 May 2010
By Spin
Format:Audio CD
A previous reviewer gives the impression that this CD is some kind of contribution to pop/rock. In fact it is a soundtrack to a TV series and not intended to be an "easy-listening" CD. The music is as mellow as all other TV soundtracks of the time. But it is the best soundtrack of them all. The title music, whenever I hear it, reminds me of the time when Hill Street Blues was considered to be the most advanced, gritty and realistic cop show on TV. Even today, I prefer the Blues series to the crap that passes for cop shows today (I have no interest in explicit violence, overly imaginative psychological monstrosities or indeed time-travelling detectives, all an attempt to make the sale of violence more exciting to a dulled public mind). This soundtrack reflects life on the beat in a violent city from the view of the city itself, rather than from the view of the protaganists (as the soundtrack to the excellent TV series "The Sopranos" does, for example), and this perspective, on the part of the composer, Mike Post, is uniquely refreshing. In listening to this CD you get a musical picture of city life, not as it expresses itself through the current individualism of rap, rock and pop, but as it feels as a city in itself. This soundtrack is the background music to all that occurs in our concrete jungles. Unlike the soundtracks of todays TV cop shows, which are composed or selected to reflect the mostly violent nature of the show, the music on this CD was composed to reflect the innermost essence of the city; the drudgery, the boredom,the excitement, the fear, the violence, the laughter. Indeed, this music is from a time when a TV series had to have original music reflecting its nature (unlike today, when TV series freely adopt any artists music to promote atmosphere). This CD is also a great example of the work of composer Mike Post. Those new to his compositions are advised to start with this soundtrack, perhaps his best. And remember, "Let's be careful out there".

4.0 out of 5 stars Let's be careful out there 5 Feb 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
For those of you who were there from the beginning, this CD will take you back to "The Hill". And if you are unlucky enough to be unfamilar with Hill Street Blues, never mind. The mellow, bluesy sounds will feel just right. No - it's not hard rock or rap and it will probably not win awards. What it will do is remind you that it doesn't have to be loud to be good when it comes to music. The only reason it didn't earn 5 stars is, I WANT MORE!!!!!
