The music by Michael Nyman has been praised as one of his better works, and considered unusually buried in the sound mix of the film The album is Nyman's 23rd release, and the fourteenth with the Michael Nyman Band The American album became very difficult to come by; American Nyman fans attempting to special order the album only a few years later were often presented with copies of Randy Edelman's Six Days Seven Nights, derived from distributors' fuzzy searches In France, however, the album was promoted as "Michael Nyman Nouvel Album"

The score features yet another of Michael Nyman's waltzes "Waltzing the Bird" is based on Nyman's early "Waltz in F," which appeared on Michael Nyman, although it develops in a very different direction "Love Theme" is a very loose reworking of material from the String Quartet No 3 with material from other themes written for the score of the film

The only liner notes on the French release of the album are an uncredited synopsis of the film in French
