Things start off strong with "Beach Theme", a moody piece that sets the tone. (A longer version of this track reappears as "Beach Scene".) "Dr. Destructo" finds Edgar Froese in one of his guitar-whaling moods, but somehow it works. The next track is "Diamond Diary", the best of the album (the movie actually starts with excerpts from this). The 10 min. track starts tentatively, then builds up to a dizzying array of synths, and takes its times to play out the various layers of sounds. Just terrific! The remainder tracks are of a somewhat lesser quality, but still quite good, in particular "Trap Feeling".
"Thief" is an important album for Tangerine Dream. Their second soundtrack (following "Sorcerer") cemented TD's status as one of the premier soundtrack providers for Hollywood. While the quality of the soundtracks would vary greatly, none would ever equal the sound and vision found on "Thief" again.
Beach Scene theme is really good. I miss Confrontation.

The CD did not have all of the music from the movie sound track the closing seen music was missing.Published 24 months ago by Harry Hughes
OH !! How I Love this music !!!
Of course I Love the movie also !!
I listen to this album a Lot and it never gets old.
It's like there is no time stamp on it.
Good stuff, stands on it's own apart from being a movie soundtrack. Not quite up to "Force Majeure" era Dream but still worth having as an aficinado of the genre.Published on August 18, 2013 by G. J. Sebring
