Original soundtrack to the 1995 motion picture directed by Michael Mann and starring Robert DeNiro and Al Pacino. In Heat, an L.A. cop (Pacino) becomes fixated on a deadly thief (DeNiro) and his crew ( Val Kilmer and Jon Voight) who are taking Los Angeles to the cleaners. This movie includes one of the most spectacular shoot outs in film history as DeNiro and Kilmer rip through downtown Los Angeles with both guns blazing. The soundtrack features both Elliot Goldenthal's excellent score plus music performed by Lisa Gerrard (Dead Can Dance), Brian Eno, Kronos Quartet, Passengers (Brian Eno, U2), Terje Rypdal, Einsturzende Neubauten and Michael Brook. Warner.
This is a downbeat and brainy set of mostly instrumental tracks from the likes of Kronos Quartet, ECM guitarist Terje Rypdal, guitarist Michael Brook, and Lisa (Dead Can Dance) Gerrard. Highlights include "Always Forever Now" by Passengers (Brian Eno, U2), and Moby's mordant cover of Joy Division's "New Dawn Fades." --Jeff Bateman

Michael Mann is an adventurous film maker and the shoot out at the end with super up tempo music by Elliot Goldenthal (Julie Taymore's squeeze) really rocks. The track Force marker is just one of those tunes that makes the action seem secondary. It makes you pump with adrenalin as the bad guys shoot it out.
And let's not forget Val Kilmer holding his own brilliantly with DeNiro and Pacino. The Iceman from TopGun is the arbiter of cool and this is a detective, crime flick that runs long. I saw it in a test audience on the first cut in Seattle in 1995. That night they flew the print back to LA to chop over 23 minutes and the movie still comes in at about 2:45. Worth every heart stopping moment.
Highly recommended. They could re-release this in theatres and it would make money like Coppola did with Apocalypse Now redux.
One word review: BRAVO.
