"OK, so here we have another score of those TD soundtracks. And this one is not one of my favourites, not because it's a bad album but there are too many fillers on this one making it boring in the end. But if you really want a complete soundtrack collection then get this one.
The first track Shy People starts of with Edgars guitar and then later on a woman starts singing, and this is a very nice track, but it would be an even nicer track if it was completely instrumental!
Joes Place is a track that could be used in the Near Dark soundtrack, a dark piece and quite moody too.
The third track, The Harbor is one of the best tracks on this CD IMO. Guitars and nice keyboard playing is what we get here in this fast paced track which takes us straight back to the Three O' Clock Soundtrack style. Good one though!
The Nightfall track is a bit boring, not much to say about it, but I guess it fits in the movie. A possible filler track.
Dancing On A White Moon is another track which is sung by a woman, not quite TD style here but it's not a bad track, but not a good track either. It's an ok song nothing more.
On to track 6 we got Civilized Illusions, which is the stand out track on this album! A very good track with the right touch of TD, the way we want them to play when we hear a good soundtrack. Fast paced with great atmosphere!! Fits perfectly!
Swamp Voices is a song you would think came from Legend Soundtrack, but this being a more haunting song with a dark atmosphere added to it. One of those great dark TD tracks is what we got here! Nice one!
Transparent Days is slow and to me a very uninspired song with nothing good in it. A bit boring tune, or should I say a filler track? You decide.
I guess the last track is the End Credits song, since it's called Shy People. Nice song but not as good as the first with Edgars guitar playing in the beginning. I would say another filler, but as an end credits song it does it's job.
So, to sum up this album. It is recommended if you are a serious collector, but if not then stay out of this one!
