HASH(0xa3a8a684) out of 5 stars Not your typical orchestral or synthesized score! Aug. 9 2012
By Carpo Collins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This bizarre soundtrack features some excellent electronic music (six tracks) by Sting and three songs (vocal & instrumental) by the Police. Perhaps the oddest track- "Narration"- has Sting reading a scene from the screenplay of the film itself with eerie music as accommodation. After some very moody melancholy music, there's the jarring addition of the GoGos' 'We Got the Beat'. I consider this the best album by Sting, though not necessarily for the Police. I have often wondered if this album was the point of Sting considering the breakup of The Police (though Synchronisity was released not long after this album). Other tracks which may not quite gel overall are "When the Roll is Called Up Yonder" by the Finchley Children's Music Group (a boys' choir), and "Up the Junction" by Squeeze (which seems quite out-of-place here). This is a fascinating soundtrack and piece of 80's pop/rock history worth purchasing, even if you never saw the bizarre and disturbing film.

I remember seeing this movie in the 80s and loving the totally weird soundtrack. Had the vinyl at the time and wore it out. I've been recently obsessed with the theme of the album and wanted to hear it again. Thank God I was able to find a copy that was not too expensive! If you like or love soundtracks with a weird vibe in its music, this is a must. And Sting is not bad too!

I first heard the cd in the 1980s and just bought it again. The songs are so familiar and "I burn for you" is a favorite. Gives me the shivers. So glad to hear it all again. Creepy narrative.

You pick and choose your songs with Sting and his ventures into here and there. This had a couple cool items on it. Worth it just for that, plus songs you already know.
