Rick's Perspective
Another soundtrack album and not bad as soundtrack albums go. It's a shame DVD wasn't about at the time as it would have made a nice sporting DVD release. It was always a pleasure to work with Mike Samuelson the producer and Tony Maylam the director. It was recorded in the worst studio I have ever worked in in my life. (You'll have to check the cover to find out which one)!
Wakey's Verdict
For collector's only!
Little Known Trivia
After the world cup final in Madrid where Italy thumped West Germany 4-1, my wife at the time complained of a severe stomach pain. An immediate doctor's visit back at the hotel confirmed there was indeed a foreign body inside her.....It turned out to be my daughter Jemma aged just a few weeks in the womb!

Bjorn Olaf Syvertsen on 4th December 1997 [Other reviews]

This is not one of my favourites. That is, it contains some quiet and very nice piano pieces, but some of the more synthetic tracks gives one an unpleasant feeling of being in a supermarket...
