I totally agree with you. I was let down when I first heard the album. It's great but it's a selection of the score. I feel like they could've done a better job crafting the album.
Hell, something experimental like releasing the music as it is as a long (digital) track would've been interesting.

I think what made it difficult for them is how the tempo changes all the time, which might have resulted in an unpleasant listening experience (I think that might have been their point of view). For example, in the movie, the tempo of the cue "Home" changes a lot and some layers are taken out while the album version has a constant tempo.

Unfortunately, the number of people who noticed how unsatisfying this release is, is quite small, so there won't be anything official. Once again, we have to wait for leaks or bootlegs.

Am I the Only one that feels Johánn Johánnsson touch everywere along this score?
Truly is the Vangelis reminiscense in each song, but the style is more near to Johánnsson than Wallfisch and of course Zimmer.
Could be Denis Villeneuve's suggestion, or maybe Benjamin has study Villeneuve last works, but is unquestionable that 2049 score sounds very Johánnsson.

Many people these days talking bad about 2049 score (No melodies, No Vangelis, All ambiance...), but the reality is that this work has perfect match with the rest of the film.

2049 is different to the original Blade Runner. Yes it has the same world and feeling, but is another director's vision, and the music follows (perfectly) the same way.

Shivering Soldier is the first track that appears "as used in the film" form on the release.

Supermarine is a misleading action suite released before the premiere, because of marketing purposes, I think the studio was a bit scared, so they wanted to demonstrate that this is more of a summer blockbuster than a black and white war movie.

Home is the classic "different version in film" case, only to give Hybrid Soldier the chance to come here and give a defense speech about how Zimmer, Nolan, and every soul at warner bros, at water tower music, at remote control and every world-class star status earned professionals in hollywood couldn't make the "as used in film" presentation dream come true. the "no the time for caution" event is still comes hilariously amature from a creative business built on the words: "Make it happen"

Wow. How cool is it that Howe who worked on this has also scored "Professor Marston & The Wonder Woman". And from the reviews it looks like his debut score for mainstream movies is spot on. Can't wait to listen to it.

Hey Hybrid, a page for this would be nice. Thanks.

Balfe did write a lot on Inception and produced it so that makes sense . Looking forward to the film next week - the soundtrack is very enjoyable and classic

I can't help myself, but whenever I hear this score, I feel this little Inception vibe. Is it just me?

Also, my favorite track is "Hong Kong Falling". It's so cool how the action part ends.

Am I the only one extremely irritated by the fact that I can't just buy the "Blade Runner" cue without buying the whole album? I mean, I been around long enough to know this is how things work, but it still bugs the hell out of me.

"Blade Runner" is actually a very good cue, and encompassed some of the best ideas and materials from the whole album.

Just occurrd to me that the first melody from Steve Jablonskies "Burn or Jump" (Deep Water Horizon) could have been a good inspiration for the the Sea Wall rescue/fight sequence. The second part could have been used for when Deckard is going to see his daughter.
