2.0 out of 5 stars Incomplete., 5 Aug. 2005
This review is from: Blade Runner (Audio CD)
Well, this soundtrack is good for a quick listen, but for film fans who adore the film it's not going to whet your appetite. The themes are either cut short or present in an edited form, and the majority of the music from the 117 minutes runtime (which was almost constantly underscored) is not on this CD. I would recommend avoiding this purchase if you're looking for a musical experience to match that of the film.
The best solution at this current date is to hunt down the Esper Edition bootleg, released recently (either late 2004 or early 2005 depending on who you believe). This is not the first bootleg of the Blade Runner music - 20 such versions exist, thanks mostly to the untimely release of THIS soundtrack some 12 years post the release of the film itself. Vangelis himself has at points given support to such versions, even going so far as to release an extended 'private' soundtrack with around 200 copies (which of course was swiftly copied and distributed amongst the hardcore). However, the Esper Edition is somewhat definitive - it has excellent sound quality and takes almost all of the music used in the film.
Hopefully someday this will be released officially, but until then it would be a waste of money to purchase this rather limp stop-gap.
