9/10 according to Ian (Norman Records staff) 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!

A quick word about reviews
The following things sometimes happen:
- one of us will like or dislike a record much more than others here do
- artists get their friends to submit suspiciously favourable reviews
- artists get their marketing team to submit even more favourable reviews
- people review stuff when they're high.
If you read a review that you think is bonkers then please do submit a better one. We like to see a bit of debate about the music we stock. You might even win our Weekly Review Competition, and with it a £10 store voucher.
Norman Records 'mini-reviews'
We would dearly love to have the time to give every record the time it merits, but sometimes there just aren't enough hours in the day.
So if you see one of our 'mini reviews', don't be offended. Don't think we can't be bothered. We're a small team and this is really just our way of saying, "Here's something worth your attention...sorry we haven't had chance to do it justice".
And, of course, feel free to submit a better review. You might even win our Weekly Review Competition, and with it a £10 store voucher.
