Format: Audio CD
This disc is a remastered release of the 1981 Virgin edition of Tangerine Dream's music for Michael Mann's movie, "Thief". It doesn't contain the film's entire soundtrack music by any means: nor, indeed, is all of the music on the CD to be found in the film! The reasons are simple: much of the film's most powerful music-that which accompanies the scenes "He's beeping in good", "Into the Shaft" and "Car Lot Showdown"-had already been released on the band's 1979 album "Force Majeure", as parts of the track 'Thru Metamorphic Rocks'. That music is represented on this disc in a shorter (5 minute) remix, 'Igneous', which uses a characteristic cue chord sequence from the film as an intro to the flanged percussion pulse overlaid with a new raw-edged guitar line. Craig Safan's music for the final scene of the film is also omitted. Tracks are also presented in an order that makes musical sense, rather than following any sequence relevant to the film. Thus, 'Dr. Destructo' (used for 'Disassembling a life' 110:00-112:45 in the director's cut of the film) is used as a moody introduction to the main track 'Diamond Diary', used for the film's opening ten minutes.
Several dodges have been applied to pad the remaining music out to provide a disc of reasonable length (although it is still quite short). Firstly, the music from the scene 'San Diego Reverie' (92:47-94:50) is included twice, in only slightly differing guises. The first, 'Beach Theme', features some small but clumsy percussion and guitar overdubs and serves as a mood-setting introduction to the disc as a whole. Its reprise as 'Beach Scene' (track 5) is longer and closer to the version used in the film.

If you are looking at this, more than likely you are wanting to purchase the fantastic soundtrack having watched the film. However, this is not the entire soundtrack - please do look at the list of tracks on the amazon listing before buying. The brilliant piece which plays out through the final scenes and end credits (Confrontation by Craig Safan) is not on this CD. I have read this track was on the initial release of this disc, but most subsequent reissues have omitted this track. Why is not clear (rights issues maybe?) but it is most disappointing that this track is missing from the disc. Would have been five stars had Confrontation been included.
