Customer Review

on 21 February 2013
Although this was never really one of the best 80's soundtracks, there are a few tracks here which would rank high in a list of the best themese from 80's movies. Paul Engelmans Push It To The Limit is an overlooked soundtrack gem and Tony's Theme by Georgio Moroder sends shivers up the spine (and is very similar to tracks he produced for The Never Ending Story a year later).
What let's this release down is (as many have stated here already)that all the tracks have been 'updated'. This is not just digital remastering but tinkering with the oiginal tracks so that the aforementioned Push It To The Limit starts with a very 90's/00's dance beat which dates the song moreso that the original from 1983 would have done. This has been done to very track apart from the two instrumentals.

There is likely only minimal demand for this soundtrack so a rerelease of the original mastered album is unlikely. As most tracks have a latin flavoured dance beat anyway, the addition of sampled beats make most of this sound like the type of thing you hate the Eurovision Song Contest for.
