Just bought:





I've been meaning to watch The Blade Runner again as it's been many years, so I figured there was no time like the present to upgrade my DVD version with 30th Anniversary Edition. As a bonus, I also bought the special 3-CD edition of the original soundtrack by Vangelis.

That looks like a nice purchase - I have the Anniversary Blade Runner Soundtrack and like it a lot.

Good to hear, Conor. I recall enjoying Blade Runner many years ago and I do distinctly remember it's soundtrack, which sounded quite nice. I think what I'm going to do from now on is when I buy a film (that I like a lot) and want to upgrade to blu-ray (especially those special edition digibooks and steelbooks), I'm going to purchase the soundtrack along with it. I don't buy movies too often, but this seems like a good idea and will, in the process, expand my soundtrack collection.

That sounds like a good plan - Im quite fond of Soundtrack albums too (I really dig Pink Floyd and Peter Gabriel's Soundtrack albums in particular!).

My favorite soundtrack is to a film I've never seen titled Ran (a feudal period Japanese film). The music is written by a favorite composer of mine: Takemitsu.

Other favorites: Chinatown by Jerry Goldsmith, Psycho by Bernard Herrmann, and The Mission by Ennio Morricone. Oh and all of Williams' Star Wars despite him being a cribber. :)

Money very well spent, John.

This one was in print and then sold out and jumped to a ridiculous price.  Fortunately, Intrada did another release, but it seems that this run is almost gone as well, so snagged a copy.  If you enjoy Lalo, go to the Intrada site and they may have a copy of this short run tv soundtrack left.

Thanks. It was recommended as being his best album by a number of people on another board, so I thought I should have it.

Some techno:

LFO - Sheath
LFO - Tied Up



Spatial distortion is a serious problem
deteriorating headphone listening.
Crossfeeders reduce spatial distortion
and make the sound more natural and
less tiresome in headphone listening.
