Mills' attempt to compose a soundtrack for Fritz Lang's monsterclassic 'Metropolis'. A Tresor release.

While some of it sounds really awkward and occasionally pompous (the ambient parts, at least), it has its good moments. There were two 12"s out of it, I think; I also remember him performing by playing on top of a cut-up video version of the original, which I considered to be at least ill-advised, but then he revisited this idea with 'Three Ages' (*).

Sometimes it's the thought that counts.
