For those who care about such things, note that the audio of the 2002 CD is brickwalled -- I asked the new-release company back in 2010 when the reissue came out whether this would be rectified in the reissue and they told me that this was just a repackaging of the 2002 audio.

What a sorry state of affairs for such extraordinary music -- the digital compromised and the analogue vinyl a click-and-pop-filled mess pressed by incompetents.

What's more they found it impossible to release this without a picture of Clooney gurning out of the sleeve -- what a shame they couldn't have used the beautiful visual from the rear cover. The first album that I've declined to buy simply because the LP cover is so fugly...

Bold, groundbreaking, beautiful, mindblowing. Those are the first of the few synonymous that comes through my mind everytime i listen to this motion picture score. Solaris is warm, subtle and sensitive - the way the orchestral and electronic parts starts to melt together and same time unravel a bit by bit, minute after minute so it's almost awe-inspiring experience and i especially love it how it seducts the listener in to the deep unknown part of dark space or should i say state of mind..? Anyway. Whereas Vangelis' Blade Runner is still today inspiring work and man himself is pioneer on soundtracks that rely on ambient textures, i personally think right next to the Blade Runner is Cliff Martinez's Solaris. In both cases the music catches the atmosphere so perfectly and leads the viewer to the point where the music itself becomes essential part of the film. Like someone said before, this is ambient for mature listeners.
