People, I need some help & guidance: As a big fan of Hong Kong genre auteur Johnnie To I always wanted to get the soudtracks of his films, especially my favorite ones, THE MISSION, PTU and EXILED.

However there don't seem to be any CDs, not even compilation albums, which - considering the (international) success of To and his Milky Way company seems highly illogical. Maybe I just didn't look in the right places. Or I was to lazy.

Can anyone point me in the right direction on this? Intel on this issue, anyone?

This appears to be it, including a pretty detailed description (I don't know anything about the website or how dependable it is):

http://tinyurl.com/3dnvw66

(It's also on amazon.com, but it's listed as "currently unavailable" there.)

Hmmm. Just saw from your profile that you're in Germany. Maybe this will be better (although I think it's more expensive than the other site, isn't it?):

YesAsia is a perfectly dependable site, though since you're in Germany you'd want to order from their global store rather than the US one previously linked.

Off the top of my head I can only think of one score to a Johhnie To film that got a full release, and that's Sparrow, which got a CD release in France.
