pressed to vinyl here for the first time, vangelis' soundtrack to the 1982 sci-fi noir detective thriller is as bleak & electronically chilling as the film itself.

by subtly interspersing clips of dialogue & sounds from the film, vangelis creates haunting soundscapes with whispered subtexts & sweeping revelations, drawing inspiration from middle eastern textures & evoking neo-classical structures. often cold & forlorn, you can almost hear the indifferent winds blowing through the neon & metal cityscapes of los angeles in 2019. the sultry, saxophone-driven 'love theme' has since gone on as one of the composer's most recognised pieces & stands alone as one of the few warm refuges on an otherwise darkly cold (but beautiful) score. the album is pressed on 180g red translucent vinyl with a beautifully designed gatefold cover.
