A Haunting And Gloomy Gem !

""Deadly Care" is a haunting, detached and at times a melancholic soundtrack. It's dark soundscapes are apropos and the quality of the musical performances are very refined. Tangerine Dream has many different styles and genres of music. Edgar Froese and friends entice listeners with an ominously profound, gloomy- but high quality CD, namely, Deadly Care."
Better than some, not as good as others...

"This soundtrack, composed for a 1987 TV movie, is a very dark and moody affair that perfectly mirrors the film that it complements. It's not a great soundtrack, nor is it inferior, hence, 3 stars.
Most TD soundtracks can stand apart from the films they were written for and are still enjoyable listening experiences in and of themselves. This one, not so much. However, it does fit the film like a hand in a glove.
Tangerine Dream has done MUCH better soundtracks (i.e. Thief, Miracle Mile, Near Dark) but they have done much worse also (Catch Me If You Can, Heartbreakers).
This will probably hold your interest if you are a fan of the movie or a devoted fan of the band."
Soundscapes From The Shadows

"The 1980s was a period of an incredible amount of soundtrack work for TD, with albums being released in conjunction with the movie or issued later, which was the case for this 1992 album with material for a 1987 TV movie.
The soundscapes lurk in the shadows and deliver a canvas of mostly darker colors; the work is clearly in conjunction with the movie and not concepts that were gathering dust in the corner of the studio, cleaned up and made to "fit" into a project.
Edgar Froese led the artistic charge into tackling a wealth of these projects - while maintaining a busy touring and recording schedule for TD's own albums - and this soundtrack is highly interesting in scope, yet sombre in vision."
