BBC Review

In 1982, director Ridley Scott released one of the greatest science fiction films of all time: Blade Runner, based on Philip K Dick's dystopian novel of humanoid robots (replicants) and a Chandleresque hero (the 'blade runner' of the title) whose job was to hunt them down and eradicate them. As much as Scott's film relied on its rain-drenched nightscapes and neon-glazed city sprawl to reflect the existential angst of Harrison Ford, it also succeeded due in no small part to the score by the former Evangelos Odysseas Papathanassiou. Besides his work on the score for Chariots Of Fire, Vangelis' most lauded film work resides here.

For 12 years following the film's release, a dispute between the composer and auteur kept the synth-drenched score off the shelves. Much joy heralded its original release, yet it was incomplete, missing many cues and extras. Now, with Scott's painstaking ten-year overhaul of his 25th anniversary print now complete, we get the whole thing and more.

This 3 cd set is both a delight for fans of the Greek keyboard meister's work and for anyone who wants a primer on how exactly to make cinematic music evocative, emotive and above all still stand up on its own. Long a feature on many a late night groover's chill-out playlist, Vangelis' work here resides on just the right side of the line marked 'new age'. The synthesizers at once convey icy alienation and also, strangely, the entire dilemma of a human in a world inhabited by machines with emotions. This is especially true on the fantastic ''Blade Runner Blues'', and on the album's most famous track, ''Love Theme'', where Harrison Ford and Sean Young overcome the man/machine divide to the strains of a wailing saxophone.

The masterstroke is to include the dialogue that fits each key scene. For instance we get ''Tears In The Rain'' we get Rutger Hauer's finest moment ('Attack ships on fire!' etc) as he slides into non-existence on the roof of a crumbling downtown hotel. And then there's all the stuff we missed out on the first time around. It's every bit as good.

where the bearded one gives us 'music inspired by the film'. It's not that it's bad,But Blade Runner is still one of the best soundtracks to one of the best films of all time. Vangelis' proto-electronica remains beguiling and essential. It's every bit as important as that new DVD! --Chris Jones

I've discovered this 3CD set rather late in the day but love it. CD1 is the previously released Vangelis Blade Runner "soundtrack" - not a soundtrack album in the strictest sense, of course, more a collection of themes and riffs used in the film supplemented by some extraneous material sung by the likes of Demis Roussos and Mary Hopkin. It's an album I always liked because it conjures up the feel of Ridley Scott's epic film so well, aided by the inclusion of some choice bits of dialogue at the start and end, even though I would not count myself a fan of much of Vangelis' musical output. I'm surprised how much I like CD2 though. It's a sort of ambient take of the first album, comprised solely of instrumentals with no added dialogue. As other reviewers have pointed out, you can hear some of these throughout the film and it notably contains the music to Dr Tyrells death scene and the following scene where Batty takes the lift back down the Tyrells building, plus music from the ensuing chase and fight between Deckard and Batty, and an instrumental version of Tears In Rain, minus Batty's final lines of dialogue (here it's called Fading Away). What makes it for me is the atmospherics - there's lots of tinkling bells and such, plus street noises, clicks and bleeps from the film which evoke perfectly images from the film for me, such as on Empty Streets and Leon's Room - and the two tracks that are listed as bonus tracks (One alone and Desolation Path) which add some melodic structure to the whole CD. The third CD is a bit of a curate's egg though. It's a Vangelis album of new music inspired by the film and his original (i.e. CD1) release and works well overall, but is a bit bland and featureless at times.Read more ›

I think it's all great, even if every last note of what was in the film still isn't here, not least the prologue music, for which I must admit I've sorely hankered for many a year.

But, at the price, this three disc set is almost worth buying for Disc 3 alone, even if it is new material that wasn't actually part of the OMS. As a complimentary set, it's only a little inferior to the original music ~ the new arrangement of Just One Kiss, Dear is hugely better and more fitting than the original (even though I can't think quite where it might have fitted into the film ~ but then neither did the original, of which no more than the most fleeting few bars featured in the background to some brief bar/cafe scene), whilst Sweet Solitude is sheer magic. I don't care for absolutely everything Vangelis has done (some of it, prior to Chariots Of Fire, is very weird) but, for me, his music for Blade Runner represents pretty well the pinnacle of his career.

Purists may carp (they always do) but, for the rest of us, this is a very welcome augmentation to the original single disc issue. The second disc, consisting of atmospheric themes from various scenes in the movie is also very good; not melodies per se, but highly relevant and evocative, bringing back so many strong memories of the film that you wonder how they didn't seem to be serious omissions from the 1994 OMS. But then we had to wait so long just for that CD that we were thankful for what we got.

Regardless of whether or not you already own the original single album, this new 3 disc set is a steal, both musically and sonically and a very welcome augmentation to the 1994 single disc. Highly recommended.

I'm getting a little annoyed by some people giving negative reviews of this 3CD set when they simply don't appreciate what they have here. Now, don't get me wrong, this is NOT the complete Blade Runner score. For some reason, they've never seen fit to release it. But taking a balanced look at what IS in this release, here is a break down of the tracks on CD 2, which is the disc containing previously unreleased pieces of the score.

1) LONGING. This track does not appear in the movie as far as I'm aware, although it isn't listed as a bonus track. Instead, it offers a fairly short introductory piece which leads nicely into Track 2. Yes, these tracks are abridged, as Vangelis did with the 1994 soundtrack release (CD 1 in this album set).

2) UNVEILED TWINKLING SPACE: This cue is the last piece heard in the film, when Deckard 'rescues' Rachael and they flee his apartment. It includes the beautiful, haunting tones where Deckard is looking at the origami unicorn.

3) DR.TYRELL'S OWL: This cue is mixed quite low in the movie but plays all through Rachael's Voight-Kampff test at The Tyrell Corporation. It begins with Deckard's line "It's too bright in here."

4) AT MR.CHEW'S: all this music corresponds to the scene in the freezer where Roy and Leon ask Chew questions about Tyrell. In the movie this cue is around 3 minutes whereas here it is 4:47, which suggests that Vangelis may have scored a longer cut of this scene.

5) LEON'S ROOM: (erroneously called LEO'S ROOM on the back of the CD). This music is actually the music covering Deckard's Esper analysis of Leon's photo in his appartment. You can hear it quite clearly in the movie, although occasionally it's mixed low and those lovely Esper bleeps get more of your attention.
