Product Description:

Original score composed by Wang Chung.
Liner Note Author: William Friedkin.
Recording information: Motion-Rama.
Director William Friedkin (THE EXORCIST, THE FRENCH CONNECTION) tapped Wang Chung, early '80s pop stars and video-darling duo, to provide the aural background for his underrated action thriller TO LIVE AND DIE IN L.A. Those expecting drab synth-pop might be delighted by Wang Chung's compositional acumen
Alongside Wang Chung chestnuts such as "Wait," the soundtrack features music written especially for the film. The title track, a gripping mixture of chugging synths, morose strings, and crisp drums, proved to be a hit single. The album's lengthy set pieces are taut exercises in melodramatic electronics and bombastic big beats, as Wang Chung mirror the Sturm und Drang of the film's antiheroes and tense chases (of both actors and autos) in the mixing board. This soundtrack is just as enjoyable independent of the film, marking it as a successful work of audiovisual art.
