It sounds strange, but I first saw this CD in the store before I even saw the film, and the Moroder name plus the packaging and design told me I would really like it. But I insisted on seeing the film first, feeling I would be silly to buy the disc just for the sensual cover art. Well, I watched the film, thoroughly enjoyed it, and rushed out to buy this disc. The opening track is possibly the best bit--Bowie's voice has rarely sounded better, the lyrics are perfect, and the song rocks. The Moroder score immediately evokes images from the film. However, it appears that this disc has different music than the actual film. I bought the film on VHS and on the back it claims that some of the music in the film has been changed from the original theatrical version. I don't know the details, and would love if someone could fill them in, but what music exactly is on this disc? While some tracks are obviously right from the movie (Autopsy, Night Rabbit, To the Bridge) others sound like reworked versions from the film (the starkly beautiful Irena's Theme, Myth, and especially Leopard Tree Dream).
Nevertheless, this is a very nice disc and highly recommended. The sound is very Moroder--fans of his other film work (Midnight Express) will certainly enjoy. He loves that drum machine and throbbing bass.
Perhaps they'll re-release this one day, remastered and with additional music from the film.
