9/10 according to on Thu 25 Apr, 2013

This is truly the greatest soundtrack ever created, the now legendary Vangelis-produced ‘Blade Runner’ OST has made a long awaited comeback to the world of vinyl and it is worth the wait. Interspersed with dialogue from the film itself which gives it an even more atmospheric quality, Greek composer/musician Vangelis pulled out all the stops here, after 1981’s ‘Chariots Of Fire’ which really cemented his name in Hollywood, the music on this soundtrack is perfect in its futuristic film noir ambience.

From the opening titles as we fly over a neon lit city to Rachel and Deckard’s sax soaked ‘Love Theme’ this is a beautiful and epic piece of music, after initial releases of the soundtrack being orchestral compositions by the New American Orchestra, fans were crying out for the superior Vangelis version and you can see why, featuring vocal contributions by Demis Roussos and said sax solo by Dick Morrissey and a production quality that would stand up by even today’s standards. Released by Audio Fidelity on transparent red vinyl this is a must own for movie music buffs everywhere!

Press release

The BLADE RUNNER soundtrack was composed by Vangelis for Ridley Scott's 1982 film considered one of the finest sci-fi movies ever made. It is mostly a dark, melodic combination of classical compositions and synthesizers which mirrors the futuristic film noir envisioned by Scott. The soundtrack holds legendary status and at the time was well-received by fans and critics including Best Original Score nominations for a BAFTA and Golden Globe yet, except for a few cuts, it was not released until 1994.

The movie remains a classic film with a long list of popular movie stars includingHarrison Ford, Daryl Hannah, Rutger Hauer, Sean Young, and Edward James Olmos most of whom appear on this record in movie dialog samples mixed into the 12 tracks of nearly one hour of music. Vangelis makes each track flow into one another. The soundtrack features vocal contributions from Demis Roussos and the sax solo byDick Morrissey on "Love Theme." The gatefold jacket includes many colorful stills from the film. BLADE RUNNER is a timeless classic on film and now on 180g transparent red vinyl.
