Blade Runner – Vangelis

Sold out
$38.00
Condition: Brand New

Description

Who hasn't had a pleasant shiver run down their backs in the cinema with the extremely evocative sounds of the soundtrack? Certainly a milestone of the genre, which would have deserved an Oscar at that time, wouldn't Vangelis have been awarded the coveted trophy for "Chariots of Fire" shortly before. On this album, which was first released in 1994, you can find almost all the atmospheres that can be heard in the film and you can also feel the powerful future scenario on the album.

Beginning with the mysterious "Main Titles" over the fantastic "Blade Runner Blues" up to the sad "Tears In Rain" as a conclusion, what is fascinating here is the continuous transition between the individual pieces, which create their own, almost mythical (sound) world. The antique "One More Kiss, Dear" is a welcome change to the ubiquitous synthesizer sounds, "Rachel's Song" or "Wait For Me" (both of which aren't actually featured in the movie) perfectly match the other tracks and atmosphere. Rarely has it been so easy to "dive" into another world. The fascination that the film radiates is perfectly captured here and is hard to let go of.
