The soundtrack to a 1982 sci-fi movie that Michael Nesmith also wrote and produced, Timerider is more evidence of the former Monkee's understated and multifaceted talents. With most of its 16 tracks clocking in at just over (or well under) two minutes, these instrumental compositions alternate between keyboard-driven '80s-style futurism and acoustic-guitar-driven Old West-iness that is also, for better or for worse, firmly grounded in the '80s. Every Fred Ward super-fan needs this.
