It consists of extended tracks from the soundtracks of three films. The first track is from the soundtrack of the film Mrs. Soffel (1984). The second track is from the documentary The Times of Harvey Milk. This film won the 1984 Academy Award for best documentary. The material of the third track is from the Carroll Ballard film, Never Cry Wolf (1983).

Mark Isham (A RIVER RUNS THROUGH IT, ROMEO IS BLEEDING, QUIZ SHOW, and MOONLIGHT MILE) is in fine form as he embraces the classic sound of swing that personified old world Vegas, and mixes it with musical themes that reflect the warm relationship between the main characters in the film. An intimate, Vegas-style lounge feel courses through the vocal performances on the album, mirroring the classy sophistication and style of the film. Disc: 1. 1. The Cooler - Mark Isham. 2. Better Life Motel/Table On Fire - Mark Isham. 3. Candy - Rebecca Kyler Downs. I loved the music in this film. It paints a portrait of old Las Vegas and everything it represented-hopes, dreams, fun, entertainment, but also heartbreak and despair, and then picking up the pieces.

His scores for Never Cry Wolf, the Academy Award-winning documentary The Times of Harvey Milk, and the Mel Gibson/Diane Keaton film Mrs. Soffel showcase his musical depth and dreamy style.

Music by. Mark Isham. Writing for The New York Times, . Scott said, "The setting. is a little tired, and the premise is pretty hokey. Mr. Kramer, rather than trying to discover anything new, is content to recycle familiar characters and story lines. and the direction are skillful, if occasionally gimmicky. Mark Holcomb of The Village Voice said, "Taking a page from the Sin City cinema revisionist's handbook, The Cooler mimics the Vegas insider's perspective of Casino (without Scorsese's fetishistic attention to detail), the seedy/saccharine insouciance of FX's Lucky (devoid of quirky chutzpah), and the couch-potato glitz of NBC's Las Vegas.
