    I first heard the band in the score from the “Thief”, Michael Mann’s
    first Feature Film (1981) & mesmerized by it right away:
    “What a strange, intense & captivating music is it!, …” was my response. 😉

      Yes, and I think that’s still their best score, although Sorcerer is really good as well. Funny how they’ve completely dropped off the soundtrack scene.

        Almost agreed but, IMHO the other best piece of music they created for a Hollywood flick is the score for “Miracle Mile (1989)”, since unlike “Sorcerer” & “Thief” it can stand alone as a good Studio Album. (strongly recommend both the film & score, though I bet you have at least heard the music) 😀
        But about their shifting turn in the late 80’s, as i’m sure you know, they decided not to repeat themselves as a prog-band and took a new path as a conventional New Age band like Enigma. Although they lost a lot from old fan-base, this new direction was also somehow successful since they got 7 Grammy Nomination & a Best documentary music-video (Telly Award for Oasis_1997) and many high New Age chart positions in the 90’s.
