    I really do not understand the positive reviews for this version. The mastering on this pressing is pretty far from the 2015 pressing and the CD anniversary and is clearly only focused on the mids. Missing a lot of highs and lows that are really distracting and take a lot away from the experience when you have heard the other master. I also have a considerable amount of noise throughout the record on both sides. So much for virgin vinyl. The 2015 pressing is not perfect at all but the wax on that pressing is so much quieter and features only a handful of loud pops rather than constant, medium level noise which I find to be much worse. Even if you get a great quiet version, the mastering is simply missing too much to be anywhere worth the hefty price. The presentation itself is fine but the color scheme is clearly more washed than the original designs. I would highly recommend just purchasing a sealed or NM copy of the 2015 version as the mastering just as so much more range.

        Watch out for the price hike on this after Vangelis Passing ( RIP )

          Be careful if you have a warped copy and try to flatten it. Whatever vinyl formulation QRP used does not like heat treatment. I used an AFI Flat, others have used Vinyl Flat, result - a flat but unplayable record :( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NkO3X3zSALg

            I missed out on this at release but i have the companion Sacd from AF which features the same mastering and i will never ever part with it. One day i will spend silly money on a copy of this masterpiece!

              Blade Runner Soundtrack is simply superb. Ridley Scott sure know how to make a movie and applicable score to accompany it. This one is just outstanding. Excellent sound quality and music that draws you in closer to the characters narrative. I highly recommend it.

                This is one of the most amazing pieces I have. It's difficult to accept how good the channel separation and dynamic range is in this LP density. The sound is 4-dimensional. They must have done everything right.

                  Hi, was the numbered sticker on the wrap or on the jacket itself? Thanks.

                    I remember this sounding nice when it was spun on an ok set up years ago. After a significant upgrade, randomly spotted this in the collection and didn't think much of it based on previous plays. Holy moly this sounds good. It's one of those records that will sound better and better as equipment allows. Straight into my personal top 3 for mastering / pressing quality.

                      I’ve owned a few thousand records in my time ... and this is in the top ten best pressing/mastering/packaging of all of them.
