soundtrack to the 1981 Michael Mann film.

Tangerine Dream is a German group that specializes in electronic music. This sound track is structurally conventional as an extended tone poem with a very much modernized "orchestration" of synthesizers and percussion. Insofar as the source movie was a "caper", the tone is dark and the rhythms drive forward.

The song, Beach THEME is a much shorter track (almost by half) and there is a very cheesy, acoustic, "rock n' roll", drum beat that was mixed/dubbed over the original Beach SCENE song which has the much more mellow and less invasive electronic, sequenced drum beat in it.

Diamond Diary, a 10-minute piece that plays in the opening sequence of the film as Frank pulls a diamond heist. It builds and builds with that sequencer working overtime, and the drilling synths and whiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiizzz sounds and whiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiirrr sounds all over, with some big, fat guitar chords thrown in. Then it comes down, settles with some keyboard overtures, and then it cranks up relentlessly again, with some thumping thrown in to match the on-screen suspense. It's a masterful track, perfectly edited into the film, as is most of the score.

Beach Scene is the longer version of Beach Theme, a more fully-realized track.

Thief (1981) - Beach Scene

Directed and writen by Michael Mann, this the famous beach scene with great images and a magnificent score of Tangerine Dream. Breathtaking!

criminally underrated film
