TangerineDream's incredible, synthy soundtrack to Thief – which is one of the coolest crime flicks ever made in the City Of Chicago – and as great as director Michael Mann and star James Caan are, the soundtrack has a lot to do with that! The droning synth and guitar sound sets the mood in an icy cool way, and the album also stands really strongly on it's own, as one the coolest sets of electro rock instrumentals of the early 80s. Includes "Beach Theme", "Dr. Destructo", "Diamond Diary", "Burning Bar", "Beach Scene", "Scrapyard", "Trap Feeling", "Igneous" and "Confrontation". LP, Vinyl record album

Pretty groovy stuff – even if it is a big shift for Polnareff! Polnareff began his career as a cool French popster – singing in a style that mixed baroque 60s arrangements with the intimacy of folk. Here, though, he's gone disco/electronic – and has composed four cool long tracks that mix together weird melodies, strange keyboards, and some occasional disco grooves. "Lipstick" is the club cut here, and it's heard stretched out with lots of other passages in the "Lipstick Montage", which was done by Polnareff and Jimmie Haskell. Side two features "The Rapist" and "Ballet", both long instrumental electronic numbers – with a very TangerineDream-ish feel. LP, Vinyl record album
