Only it's short. Of course also here less than 8 minutes are not enough to have a birth of liquid plejades, so the various sections have a shorter duration. The spacey part in the middle is very good, indeed.
Less than two very melodic minutes with "The Mountain Road", that I think appropriate for the end titles, followed by "Impressions of Sorcerer" which features a good electric guitar. The album is closed by what I suppose is the main theme of the movie. It's a very nice piece, quite dark. To be honest, at this point of their career TD are not yet ready for short things. This is a good album but as many soundtracks non-essential.
Three full stars. Progressive rock seems to have a connection with horror films. Friedkin's interactions with progressive rock would not end with his horror masterpiece however; with his next film Sorcerer, he would enlist the musical conjurings of Tangerine Dream.
Although I am a fan o Friedkin's work, I have never seen the film for which Tangerine Dream made their first-ever Hollywood soundtrack. For what I've read, it seems as though Sorcerer was met with less-than-thunderous applause, thanks in large part due to the esoteric nature of the film, and the fact that it was released a month after a certain director named George Lucas cemented his name in history with Star Wars.
Although this soundtrack fits snugly within the golden years of Tangerine Dream's strongest material, there is a scattered structure and emotional distance that would go to define much of the band's soundtrack work. With that being said, "Sorcerer" still retains many of the qualities that made these years so great for Tangerine Dream, although anyone expecting something along the lines of "Phaedra", "Rubycon", or even "Stratosfear" will find themselves sorely disappointed.
Regarding the palette of sounds used, "Sorcerer" is similar to the previous album, "Stratosfear". Although much of the sound relies on meditative synth arrangements and eerie soundscapes, there is a moderate use of the electric lead guitar.
The greatest strength of Tangerine Dream remains their ability to fuse and develop textures of sound, and "Sorcerer" capitalizes on this. The opening piece, "Main Title" is a solid indicator of the direction TD take with their style here. Although there remains a sense of composition and deliberate pacing, the music is left largely incidental and ambient, rarely changing pace or fostering a surprise for the attentive listener. In the context of a film, this spacey atmosphere could paint an eerie backdrop for a suspenseful scene.
For the experience of listening on its own merit, "Sorcerer" comes off feeling like Tangerine Dream-lite, bringing the sounds, but not the inspiration and willingness to innovate. Although it's perhaps a necessary shortcoming of the soundtrack format, Tangerine Dream's compositions are cut up into bite-sized chunks. Eschewing the sprawling side- length epics for shorter pieces, the compositions on "Sorcerer" feel more like unfulfilled ideas.
