Before you buy this album, a word of caution - there are actually two different versions of this soundtrack with two different track listings, and annoyingly the track that seems to be the most sought-after by fans of the movie is only on one of these releases. To make matters worse, it can be somewhat tricky to tell which version of the album is which, particularly when, as here on Amazon, the track list is not displayed.
Chances are, if you're looking at this, you're either a fan of the movie or a follower of Tangerine Dream's work, so I shan't bother to review the actual musicianship on offer here. Instead I'll offer some words of advice regarding the different releases. If, like me, you want the own music from Thief's final scene ("Confrontation" by Craig Safan), then be sure to by the CD marked on the front cover as the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, with James Caan's credit at the top. Unfortunately this seems to be harder to come by than the more recent remastered release, credited solely to Tangerine Dream, which does not contain this track; in it's place is a longer version of the track "Beach Theme" called "Beach Scene" (the latter is in fact closer to what is heard in the actual movie). Hopefully this advice will help prevent anyone hoping to hear the guitar-laden conclusion to the film from being disappointed.
