Firestarter is an action-packed thriller with dark and sinister references. That description applies to the film and to Tangerine Dream's soundtrack. As a body of work, their film music is inconsistent and uneven. There are some outstanding scores and some real clunkers. This CD is a good one. The music has strong character and integrity and the classic TD sound with dark atmospheres.

Tangerine Dream have always made commercial in roads with numerous soundtrack album, especially in the 1980's where it was almost two albums a year, such was the demand for their music scores. That in itself is a high accolade and Firestarter if you had to just take the musical perspective, is a decent album. Funny how the music does not date, yet the film showboating a very young Drew Barrymore certainly has. Quite entertaining. Tangerine Dream are well known and revered for their movie soundtracks and have produced some wonderful pieces that are often better than the movie itself. They tend to focus on the more supernatural side of things and this is no exception. Like the soundtrack there are parts that are compelling and peak my interest but there are also some mediocre moments that mar an otherwise excellent effort.
With the passing of Tangerine Dream founder Edgar Froese last month, I've been pulling out quite a few of the band's CD's I've picked up over the years and giving them a spin. I was a kid when "Firestarter" came out in theaters, and luckily my older brother was a huge Stephen King fan, and dragged me to the drive-in to see it. I remembered very little about the film, but I always loved the theme song ("Crystal Voice")
