"I haven't seen the movie but I bought this album because Marianne Faithfull is one of my favourite female vocalists. The music is provided by the Raincity Industrial Ensemble consisting of Mask Isham on Trumpet, saxophone and electronics, Pee Wee Ellis on saxophone, Kurt Wortman on percussion and Peter Maunu on guitar.
The title track by Faithfull is slow and melancholy, almost suicidal, with beautiful sax and keyboards. Pleasure In Old Sufferings is a sad synth excursion while To Forget For A Moment has some interesting electronic sounds and Members Only is an uptempo number, a welcome change amongst the mostly slow tracks. A Matter Of Conflict (Trouble In Mind ) is briefly reprised by the inimitable M Faithfull.
Halves Of A Dream is a mournful instrumental whilst Confidence In Old Sufferings is a short uptempo track. Intimacy sounds quite ominous with its strange synths and muffled voices, very similar to the next one, By Way Of Preparation. The Hawk (El Gavilan), written by Kris Kristofferson and sung by Faithfull, is dreamy and evocative with lovely sax. The music is ocassionally haunting but not particularly memorable. But if you're a Faithfull fan, it might be worth it for the three vocal tracks.
