Greece, 1994, progressive electronic / film score / space ambient

VangelisBlade Runner: The space ambient opening of the score is a lure darkly shining amidst the drizzle-shrouded cityscape. Beautiful retro-future moments featuring a lonely pianos and classy harps evoke memories of a future that never was. This is always a powerful listen, arresting my attention in a way few albums in my collection can, weaving a nameless yet welcome sadness in my breast. How can an album both soothe me and make me feel anxious at the same time? I guess I just feel sorry for pretty much everyone in the film. It’s such a bleak world, and can there actually be any escape?
