Zimmer does it yet again!
on 10 January 2018
After seeing the movie in IMAX & experiencing the full force of yet another brilliant Hans Zimmer soundtrack I simply had to get this on vinyl!
Lovely 2 disc package sadly not a gatefold sleeve but the inner artwork makes up for that with super glossy stills from the film.
As for the sound, well it is breathtaking! acres of scale & depth & sound staging. The score is faithful to Vangelis's original 82 masterpiece & I believe he was involved in the production of the 2017 sequel. I love it when a score really does take your mind back to specific scenes in a film & Blade Runner 2049 does that superbly. Zimmer's use of weird & unidentifiable electronic keyboard sounds & almost seismic bass sounds is a real treat for the ears. 'Sea Wall' is a stand out example of what I mean here. The album was keenly priced too.
Best played loud & on a decent system, in fact if i still worked in Hi Fi this would be my equipment test disc it is that good!
