Soundtracks - recommend

Just been watching Bladerunner, which is stunning in ultra HD. Made me think, is there a soundtrack out there that comes close to the perfection of Vangelis’ score for this?

I’d have to say the Countryman soundtrack and specifically the Wally Badarou tracks

I’d recommend you watch and listen to Vladimir Cosma’s score/soundtrack to ‘Diva’

Ryuichi Sakomoto’s score for The Revenant is sublime. Haunting, ethereal, beautiful

Michael Nyman stuff for Gattaca. Can find the album but someone has put together a playlist. The Departed is a great piece of music.

I was going to mention Eric Serra, you beat me to it.

Tangerine Dream Firestarter
Jack Nitzsche Starman

Both not amazing throughout, but the main themes are awesome, I’ve lost count of the number of tunes that rework/edit Firestarter

Love this as a kid

luke solomon did a housed up edit of wu tang - fast shadow years ago, don’t think it got to see the light of day but it was pretty good.
