Blade Runner 2049 (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) Album Reviews
Fit the movie increbily well!!
Honestly thought it fit the movie so well! Sure its somewhat different that the original but it fit the tone of the movie perfectly.
Finally a soundtrack that makes the movie work
Movie was super awesome sound track in theatres even better you could watch this movie without dialogue and just listen to the sounds and it would still be epic.
Individual Purchases Not Available
I like the music, though it’s not as distinct as the original. My real grip is that the individual music I purchased, even after I decided to buy the whole album, is unavailable to me. Why is that Apple?
This sounds like an ad for Native Instruments and Heavyocity plugins.....BORING. The producer they kicked off the film had a much better score written..
Best part of the movie...the music.
It's phenomenal! My only complaint is that it's all over the place. No attempt to match the tracks to the films progression. Otherwise it's everything I'd hoped it'd be. And I didn't have to wait 12yrs to have it. Purchased it within ten minutes of returning home after seeing the film.
"Sea Wall" , which plays out during the final confrontation, is so masterfully crafted and raises the tension of what's otherwise a pretty standard showdown. Buy it, if only that track alone.
why is this not Itunes mastered?
there is absolutley no reason why any artist (especially a score/soundtrack artist) to release anything on itunes and not have it mastered for itunes from the start.. other than that I like this, its true to the roots of the OG Blade Runner.
Not worth the ordeal
This is just not a good soundtrack. It lacks any reasonable sense of musicality. There is no sense of meaning to the amporphous sonic scapes. The inclusion of songs only emphaiszes the meaninglessness of the "music". Presley and Sinatra demonstrate the power of music. "Almost Human" is derivative, poorly performed and ridiculously dated. What is sad about this soundtrack is that it fails to match the visuals in artistry. Why not have a stronger more trained voice singing the song? Why not have discernible melodies instead of needless punctuated sound blobs that resemble slammed doors rather than actual instrumentation? Why not spring a few extra piano notes to demonstrate some sense of focus and purpose? Why bother titling the pieces, there is no differentiation in tone or mood? Why not hire an actual person talented at soundscapes? Lustmord would have been perfect for this soundtrack, and he had least would have brought an artistry that this sorely lacks. I wouldn't recommend this soundtrack at all, in fact, I feel like a fool for buying it.
My favorite is Tears in The Rain
Movie blows my mind - Ears...not so much
The movie is epic and inventive. The music is simply not. A hard line to walk here for the musical team up. How do you get us back into that world sonically? Most of the tepid reviews are so right on the money. Where are the new themes? Deeper sonic experience that 30 years of talent and tech can deliver. Should this have been handed off to Crystal method? I can only have wished. Instead, minus a few beat tracks, I'd get this for a better relaxed massage.
Watch the film before reviewing the score...
I’m a big Blade Runner fan, saw the first film in the theatre when I was eight and it forever impacted my imagination as a young artist. All these later Zimmer pulled off the right score for this film. I ‘thought’ I wanted more original themes but after seeing the film today, this score fits it perfectly. I loved the movie and the score. Great job.
