Tangerine Dream had already enjoyed a lot of success before they were asked to soundtrack the film Flashpoint in 1984. Their brand of moody, tension building synth soundscapes were a perfect fit for a thriller, and this continued their trend of creating instrumental music that filled rooms. This was not their first soundtrack, and the 9 tracks credited to Tangerine Dream are triumphs in soundtrack creation. There is one additional track here, from The Gems to close out a fantastically crafted album.
For fans of: Klaus Schulze, Edgar Froese, Kraftwerk
