180 gram heavyweight vinyl in gatefold sleeve. Issued with black die-cut antistatic protective inner.

[Liner notes inside gatefold sleeve:]
"Most of the music contained in this album originates from recordings I made in London in 1982, whilst working on the score for the film Blade Runner. Finding myself unable to release these recordings at the time, it is with great pleasure that I am able to do so now. 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. 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."

WARNING, risk of buying a damaged album!Many people have said their album was damaged, but also many have said theirs was fine so I made the risk of buying one. I unfortunately got a scratched one.Nearly everything about the album was great! No warping, cracks, creases in cover, etc. Even great sound which some have said was bad compared to the limited remastered version. Except scratches! Which went through multiple tracks.I bought this overseas brand new and knew this could happen from reading reviews here, but at the time I didn't inspect the album which was a mistake on my behalf so I could have returned it then. Since I live in Australia I thought I could return it to Warner Music Australia, I couldn't find an email so emailed the US site, they said return it to them and reorder one.Its just as expensive buying another from the Australian site (Which are the only ones with stock) than it is shipping it to the US.I then found an email to the Australian Warner Music, they didn't respond at all!As of this moment I am still emailing Warner Music US to see what I can do. Im not sure if I will be refunded at all but I really would like this album, it's just such a shame that this is something we have to deal with!
  • Vudozilkree
Just bought one and mine is very curve... One side is convex, second is concave. On one side only label is sticking to turntable plate and rest of record is flying above.... Alll part edition is so defective?
  • Perius
Nope, mine is perfect, I've been refunded several time for such defect, claim for a refund or another copy : )
  • Vizuru
One of the best soundtracks of all ranks up there with Brian Enos stuff in terms of ambient brilliance. One of those records that you never tire of hearing in that there is always something new to be found......and this pressing is great. Very happy!
  • Tto
Just bought this pressing today. I've always wanted to have the Blade Runner OST on vinyl. This pressing sounds really good on my 1982 Akai AP-D210 turntable. The basses are amazing. I also like the fact that they added snippets of the original movie dialog and sound effects. The only down side to this other wise amazing pressing is the lack of a poster or a movie still.
  • Kata
No issues with my pressing. Sounds incredible. This is an album to immerse yourself in and play from start to finish. Stunning.
I am getting some nasty high frequency distortion on the B-side of this reissue. Unlistenable, really. Side A sounds just right. I guess I have to return it.
  • SoSok
What can I add to what others have already written? This is a beautiful record and is so cohesive as a piece of music in its own right. My pressing is very good, very natural sounding and completely devoid of pops and clicks. The song 'One More Kiss' is very quiet which I don't know is deliberate or because it is the last song on quiet a long A side. A gorgeous piece of music to own and lovely on vinyl.
  • Andromajurus
Does the song Blush Response sound good on this pressing? I find that the digital file/CD version of this song is very thin/bass shy and would like an improvement on that.
  • Erennge
All of the tracks are superb mastered full with bass lines according to the standards of these times. Output also high.
  • Tar
incredible SOund...Fantastic. Great pressing..Some rare pop. But not a real problem vs the extrodinary sound.. Masterpiece.
  • Munigrinn
This album is fantastic. You should get it only for Tears in Rain, one of the most beautiful tracks that I have heard. Solid pressing with minimal static noise.
  • Humin
Good pressing for myself. What a masterpiece.. Vangelis is a genius
  • Manarius
I was one of the lucky ones to spot this on sale at HMV. Had it sent all the way to NZ. I didn't want to count my chickens.... but i'm listening to it now and it sounds Amazing! Fucking Amazing! I couldn't resist putting it straight on so i'm getting the odd (very few) static clicks. I can't imagine any other pressing sounding much better than this. If you have the chance, get it Now!
  • Terr
well, imagine no longer because you just need to hear this version: which doesn't have the same problem with low-end distortion (during 'tears in rain' for example). i just did an a/b test and the audio fidelity version sounds far clearer. listen to your copy again and you'll notice what i mean :(
  • *Nameless*
The music on this record is incredible! Unfortunately the manufacturing ist extremly poor. A lot of crackeling and surface tension! Had to wash it several times with antistatic rinse.Edit: Meanwhile I returend the first copy and got a new one. The second one is much better.
  • Framokay
Picked up the new pressing of this from Bull Moose. I had and sold the Audio Fidelity numbered red pressing of this. Sound quality on this version is as good or better to be completely honest. Clearaudio Concept MC, MS Phonomena II, KEF LS50 Wireless.
  • Dddasuk
i'm afraid i have to disagree... the low-end on this version is badly distorted compared to the crystal clear audio fidelity version. i have both pressings and when compared you can hear the distortion throughout this pressing, with the easiest place to pick up the issue within 'tears in rain' when the low-end is pushed. such a shame!
  • Mallador
I bought this version of Blade Runner - Vangelis LP 180g (East West) from an Australian seller goldmine-records on eBay. My setup is of a Project-RPM 5.2, Ortofon MC20 Supreme, Cambridge CP2 Phono Pre, Little Dot MKiii Pre-amp (Valves) to Myryad mi120 and mi240 pre-amp and power amp, connected via Chord Silver Siren and Chord Oddessey 2 cables to a pair on B&W CDM 1NT speakers. My setup is heavenly smooth very dynamic, low bass and hi frequency treble with smooth sweet roll-off. So how does this record sound? SU-PERB. Just superb, flawless. Deep black noiseless backgrounds and smooth and delicate piano and the amazing synth work by Vangelis. My phono cartridge and it's Van Den Hul diamond also tracks supreme detail. I real show-off record. Amazing!
  • Adoraris
Interesting about distortion, what is the cartridge you're using? Curious.
  • Survivors
I've listened to this record on Michell Gyro Deck, Axia Transfiguration Phono Cart, Naim amps and Castle Harlechs speakers compared to my set-up. I can't give it any flaws, or comment on distortion that is in the way of enjoying this version of Blade Runner - Vangelis.
  • Pipet
i've written elsewhere on this page about this but you really need to compare it to this version: again to 'tears in rain' during moments where the low-end is pushed and you'll hear the distortion... that isn't present on the audio fidelity pressing. sad but true!
  • Yozshujinn
What other vinyl versions do you have to compare to?
  • Faugami
Any comments on the sound quality of this press? 1 more character
  • Ironfire
Superb quality. Nothing more to add. I think it is even better than Audio Fidelity, red vinyl, edition.
  • Clandratha
I think I will have to agree, but there is only a slight problem in clarity due to distortion in Tears In The Rain for only moments, say 1-3 secs and perhaps a sec there after. Well spotted. However, my cart is particularly high quality, and I've heard this album in a $2500 Axia Transfiguration cartridge on a Gyro Deck, where the diamond digs deep and the cantilever design is the lowest distortion. Same with carts like Ortofon Salsa and designs geared to lowest distortion. This album was perfect with the Axia. Elliptical, Semi Elliptical (some Shibata designs) or radial type diamonds perhaps will give you trouble with low end distortion and clarity. So, equipment will also contribute to how much distortion and detail you will pick up unfortunately. One day I would love to hear the Audio Fidelity pressing.
  • The Sphinx of Driz
it's a good pressing, but not without problems. there is low-end distortion throughout and you can clearly hear it during 'tears in rain', whereas you can't hear it at all on the audio fidelity version (i have both pressings).
  • Tejora
My copy sounds just perfect, I can wholeheartedly recommend this release - very quiet pressing without any audible surface noise. Bass-heavy Tears in the Rain is a good test due to its sound character and it sounds perfect, without distortion. Given that, I have never heard a different vinyl release, just CD.
  • Wenyost
My copy sounds great, clean, flat pressing without any surface noise at all. Haven't heard the Audio Fidelity version though
  • Tiainar
It seems to be a repress of the 2015 version, which I think sounds OK. Some cracks and pops, but the Audio Fidelity version is the ultimate to have.
  • Vrion
I was so happy to see one copy in person in Korea, only to found out that my pressing is absolute trash , surface noise everywhere. Sigh.
  • Rainpick
Pleased to see that these are back in stock at Amazon for now as well.
  • Marilace
Does this have the dialogue from the scenes still in it? I listened on iTunes recently and that did, wondering if this is the same. Never heard a soundtrack that wasn't just the isolated music before.
  • Virn
It does indeed have some dialogue through a few tracks
  • Kinashand
Does anyone know if this is the much praised Kevin Grey mastering? Nothing on the credits about the mastering so maybe if anyone owns both they could comment?
  • Thetahuginn
I don't think Kevin Grey did mastering on this one.It is only a reissue,not a remastered material.I have several copies.Both U.S and European pressings.There are some differences.Tears in the rain sounds like the tonearm will go crazy on European pressing.To much low end and you must be aware this is over 50 minutes music on one single LP.Hm...very tough.Mr.Grey did some magic there.If you have both of these,just compare visually...tears in the rain on U.S. version is double wider than on EU press and that is a track with so much low frequencies and at the end of the side of the record...bad really bad.Wandered why they didn't release it on a double package.That is really odd.I also think this is a restock from 2015.Not a reissue.
  • Khiceog
This new version sounds great. My pressing is very clean with no surface noise. The packaging is minimal - just pictures and the Vangelis quote on the gatefold with no insert, but the cardboard used is heavy weight and not likely to damage easily. The inner sleeve is black paper which is a nice design touch. "Blade Runner Blues" sounds especially great on vinyl. Perfect rainy night listening.
  • Vertokini
One of the best-sounding vinyls ever [2015 reissue European print/black vinyl] in addition to being an absolutely timeless classic as a movie soundtrack. Truly recommended.
  • Dorizius
  Doomguy-id What, are you going to retire me officer?  aivoradio Being a replicant doesn't prevent one from feeling remorse, though. Probably was having a bad day at the colony and for that I'd like to apologize. I tend to get mad at people who review to brag that they own an expensive/rare vinyl. Obviously that was really far fetched in this case.
  • Qulcelat
  Sinner101 - What are you even talking about? You sound like a malfunctioning replicant.
  • melody of you
One of the best-sounding vinyls ever [but only the version I have, remember me]. Oh and on a side note it's also a pretty ok soundtrack to an ok movie. But yeah, truly recommended and I am deeply sorry for anyone unlucky enough to not own this masterpiece [not me though, please don't forget about me].On a serious note, maybe I should stop collecting, I'm not that far in and who knows, maybe I'll one day get to the point of my only source of self-confidence being my vinyl collection too if I don't stop or at least slow down now... Consumption is a drug
