That said, the rest of the soundtrack is a mixed bag. There are moments of beauty, particularly those that repeat the opening theme--"Irena's Theme," "Leopard Tree Dream," and "Myth," the latter of which features Bowie's dusky, languid humming of the main theme. But other selections are so specifically tied to the film that they do not stand well alone.

The bulk of the Album is music of Giorgio Moroder I has sort of a new age feel. And he has produced music for several movies, even Metropolis (1984 Re-release Of 1924 Film) ASIN: B00000260Q.
