About this deal

Looking back at Ridley Scott's powerful and evocative pictures left me as stimulated as before, and made the recompiling of this music, today, an enjoyable experience.

Some of the pieces contained will be known to you from the Original Soundtrack of the film, whilst others are appearing here for the first time. The score evokes the film's bleak futurism with an emotive synthesizer-based sound, drawing on the jazz scores of classic film noir as well as neo-classical elements and Middle Eastern texture. When the "Blade Runner Trilogy" set was released the original 1994 album was remastered and it is these remastered recordings that are used on the "Retirement Edition".The 2015 pressing is not perfect at all but the wax on that pressing is so much quieter and features only a handful of loud pops rather than constant, medium level noise which I find to be much worse. The 1989 compilation Themes included some tracks from the film, but it was not until two years after the 1992 Director's Cut of the film that the score saw an official release. We have one of the widest ranges of hifi available in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland from excellent integrated amplifiers to the latest stereo micro systems.

An orchestral rendition of part of the soundtrack was released in 1982 by the New American Orchestra. Visual inspection showed a definite difference in the grooves at this point which is a slightly different colour to the rest of the track.The vinyl sounds absolutely and stunningly crystal clear, almost all the way through, but alas, there's a strange noise happening in the fourth track of the first side.

The decision seemingly paid off, as Clint Worthington notes in his review of the film: "[Zimmer and Wallfisch] lean heavily on Vangelis' original 1982 score for inspiration, but 2049 is refreshingly light on incidental music, mostly allowing the booming, immersive sound design to take center stage.

Composed by Vangelis for Ridley Scott's 1982 classic, the Blade Runner soundtrack has assumed legendary status amongst fans of synthesizer music.The original motion picture soundtrack for Ridley Scott's 1982 science-fiction noir film Blade Runner, composed by Greek electronic musician Vangelis. The mastering on this pressing is pretty far from the 2015 pressing and the CD anniversary and is clearly only focused on the mids. The duo was brought in somewhat later in the production process, after the score’s initial composer, Icelandic composer Jóhann Jóhannsson, ceased involvement due to creative differences. Examples where various disciplines come together to produce something as seminal as Blade Runner are rare, and this pressing is the perfect way to honour that. The movie needed something different, and I needed to go back to something closer to [the original film's composer] Vangelis.
