Ridley Scott's 1982 film Blade Runner is universally hailed as one of the finest sci-fi movies ever made. The landmark film remains a classic to this day and includes breakout performances from a laundry list of popular movie stars such as Harrison Ford, Daryl Hannah, Rutger Hauer, Sean Young, and Edward James Olmos.
The film's accompanying soundtrack composed by the world-renowned Greek musician Vangelis also holds cult status and although it was very well-received by fans and critics at the time of Blade Runner's initial release, including nominations for Best Original Score at the BAFTA and Golden Globe awards, it wasn't officially released until 1994.
Its 12-tracks add up to nearly one hour of music, a dark and melodic amalgamation of classical compositions and synthesizers which mirror the futuristic film noir envisioned by Scott. Vangelis makes each track truly flow into one another with movie dialog samples from the film's actors interspersed throughout. The soundtrack also features notable contributions from Demis Roussos on vocals and a lingering sax solo by Dick Morrissey on "Love Theme."
