  • Great soundtrack

    Listened to this SEVERAL times. Great soundtrack. Don’t compare this OST to Vangelis’s.. they’re two different movies, two different feels. I recommend both of them!

    I enjoyed the film and the soundtrack did it's job. The film was brilliant while the soundtrack was somehow a bit dissapointing compared to the impact made by the original Vangellis score.

    Yes, five stars although I do have a couple of nitpicks. I look at this in the same way I looked at Daft Punk's score for "Tron: Legacy" compared to the Wendy Carlos amazing off-time-change compositions for the original "Tron": younger minds, different ideas. Not fresh, but different. I was mostly glad that the music BR2049 wasn't some EDM-influenced racket. There's a place for that and this ain't it. I see some complain that it uses too much of the Vangelis-written themes which I really felt wasn't out of place. Much like Jed Kurzel's adaptations of Jerry Goldsmith's "Alien" score for "Alien Covenant", I found them to be a welcome note of familiarity in a visual world that's very much updated from the original. It's not unlike comparing scenes of NYC in the 1930's versus now. Where Vangelis's work was steeped in a classic "film noir" tradition (which probably was made moreso with the Deckard voiceover in the theatrical release of the original), Zimmer & Wallfisch have a more modern sound to fit a modern film. My two issues: Just me, but a little more organic, analog instrumentation in certain moments wouldn't have been a bad thing. The right instruments at the right time could've given certain dialogue passages a little more heft. Again, that's my armchair filmmaker side coming out to play. Then, there's that synth that sounds like they sampled a crotch rocket motorcycle in a tunnel and tuned it to suit their needs (reference "Pilot" around the 1:48 mark). Playing it though home speakers seems to take the harshness out a good bit but, in the theater, I guess I was sitting in the sweet spot where I'd get the brunt of whatever frequencies were gonna give my ribs a bit of a shaking.
  • Fantastic Score

    The score for Blade Runner 2049 is beautifully crafted using similar techniques from Vangelis's 1982 score, both composers managed to deliver a fantastic score that set the mood, and delivered tension, awe, nostalgia, and beauty to the film.
  • Deep, mindful, thoughtful

    This score reaches into the soul! Nicely done. As pleasing as the original score.
  • 2017 and perhaps the decades most jaw-dropping film

    To put it clear and simple this is probably the most captivating movie I have ever seen. And with any good movie comes an incredible soundtrack.
  • Nice review by Darshan

  • The music fits the movie

    There is the temptation to compare this score with the score for the first movie. That really doesn't seem fair. Some reviewers have noted that this score lacks strong themes. If you are looking for hummable themes, that is true. But in the context of Blade Runner 2049 it makes complete sense. You see, this movie is told through the eyes of the replicant, K (Joe). I imagine that a replicant's mental landscape would be more like the score that accompanies this movie: deep memories, guardedly summoned and not completely trusted. The only scene that is anything close to happy is the scene on balcony in the rain. And even then K is struggling to make a connection to Joi. The music unfolds on a subconscious level with a deep, wrenching quality. The musical themes in this movie are decidedly dark and sparse - notes rather than phrases. The songs from the scenes with Wallace (Wallace, Her Eyes Were Green) use something similar to Buddhist throat singing - an appropriately unworldly sound for sure. The few humans that we do encounter in the movie are toxic, cold or arrogant. With that in mind, the final song (Almost Human) is really quite ironic. The Sinatra and Presley songs are poignant, if not comical, given how different the world has become. The songs from the transit scenes (Flight to LAPD, Mesa, Pilot, and Sea Wall) are incredibly powerful and really help carry the movie forward with urgency. But the songs that leave the most lasting impression for me are the ones filled with longing (Sapper's Tree, Rain, Joi, and All the Best Memories Are Hers). These songs pick up the real theme of the movie: the desire to be complete.
  • Worth buying

    Loved both movies and the Vangelis soundtrack. While this soundtrack is clearly different from the first, it’s a strong soundtrack and I was happy I bought it after a dozen listens now. Just make a playlist taking out the Elvis and Sinatra tracks and loop it over and over for a wonderful experience. If you loved the sound in the 2049 movie then you’ll more than likely love this too.
