Well, what can one say about anything from the 1980s if you grew up in them? Especially with something as cool as MIAMI VICE. Dept 'S' is standing by (S for Style). Long gone now are the wonderful rock compilations that were synonymous with 1980s movies and TV series. This, the second outing for MCA's marketing department is probably for the best of the three. From the weirdly odd 'Mercy' to the wonderful character theme of character themes... "Crockett's Theme" (the reason I'm buying this from Amazon now). I love it.
Own all 5 series on DVD. Had to purchase this to get Steve Jones' "Mercy" from the episode Stone's War- a beautiful bit of music. Really bought it for this alone, although there are some good Jan Hammer tracks including "Crockett's Theme." Brings back memories big time! Only gripe is the cd cover booklet contains very little info. which is a bit lazy for us Vice fans.
MIAMI VICE was one of the coolest TV shows of the 80's and the soundtrack by JAN HAMMER perfectly complimented the look of the show with its cool visuals and characters. The show also used some of best rock, pop and dance tunes of that time and this compilation contains many of those.
