The best thing about the 1985 Michael Mann move THE KEEP was the music. The acting (despite a first-rate cast) was wildly uneven, the script made hash out of what had been a great story, and the editing rendered what was on screen a largely unintelligible mess. However, Tangerine Dream wrote and performed a darkly beautiful score which went hand-in-glove with the film's wonderfully atomospheric cinematography. Unfortunately, despite repeated promises to the contrary, an official mass-market soundtrack was never released. For many years, I've trolled the internet, trying to obtain one of the many bootleg and semi-bootleg copies floating around out there, and at last I succeded, or thought I succeeded, with this ablum.

I say "thought I succeded" because this album is not precisely what it appears to be. It has twenty tracks amounting to one hour and twenty minutes of music, but of those twenty tracks, only seven of them I identified as definitely being in the actual film. They are:

"Gloria" (3:10) - This is a vocal track from the scene where Molasar carries an unconscious Eva to her father.

"The Night in Romania" (3:11) - When Mikhail the Priest, Dr. Cuza and Eva meet in the Keep for the first time.

"Canzone" (2:49) - A truncated version of the song playing when Dr. Cuza attempts to take the talisman out of the keep.

"Supernatural Accomplice" (4:07) - Mikhail in his church.

"Moorland" (4:04) - Glaeken departs by boat for Rumania.

"The Keep" (8:01) - Lutz and Otto go looking for silver and find Molsar instead; this song, with its descending trancy sound, is the one fans of the musical score most associate with the movie, and the one that usually has people looking to buy the soundtrack. It's here in its amazing entirety.

Edgar Froese, Johannes Schmoelling and Christopher Franke perform the 16 numbers - clocking 60:06 - for this 1983 soundtrack that has quite a history.

Its "official" release was initially in a limited edition run of 150 CD's sold at a 1997 UK concert. Since 1990, the album has been available in a variety of bootlegs, which shows the fan interest generated from this obscure release.

Canzone is an original composition for the film, with Heritage Survival and Night In Romania part of the 1982 Logos Tour, but performed as untitled selections. Puer Natus Est Nobis is a 1554 Christmas Mass by Thomas Tallis.

Still quite difficult to find, this is an outstanding soundtrack that is worth attempting to track down.

This soundtrack is very good (but obscure just like the film), and suits the scenes in the film very well all the way through.

Tangerine Dream has proved yet again that they can score great music to films, even though this was quite an obscure one, just like many other films they have scored. But if you like the Near Dark Soundtrack then you'll probably like this one too. It is quite haunting at times, with some dark atmosphere to it which makes it a good CD to listen to even though you havn't seen the film first. But seeing the film first and then listening to it will make you understand the music better. At least I thought so!

There is a track called "Logos", which is played when the two soldiers are trying to enter "The Keep" and this song is also the most memorable of them all as it can be found on the Logos CD by TD.

I didn't find the film very exciting, but TD made it worth watching just because of the great music. I would definetely recommend this CD. It is worth tracking down no matter how expensive it is! I'm glad I bought it when I had the chance!

Buy It!!

I have looked for a legit version of this for years... now my TD collection is complete. Some great music in here, though over all not their best, it is still a thrill to have it finally.

Not a typo. A limited run of 150 CDs were sold at a concert by the group in the UK in 1997. Virgin soon announced that the album would be available for general release in early 1998, but legal issues with the film studio stopped the release. In 1999, Tangerine Dream's own record label sold 300... Read More
