This soundtrack definately has some of the best synthesized music out there. The pulsating rhythms and entrapping melodies lead one's mind to dream of distant planets and sci-fi scapes. Although the music is reminiscent of Blade Runner, the sci-fi movie with Harrison Ford, it has absolutely no real connection with the movie. If only the title had more relevance, I would give it five stars. For Blade Runner fans, a better buy would be the fantastic soundtrack from the movie by the famous Vangelis.
Overall, a good cd if you like the synthesizer genre or simply want some escapist and relaxing music.

4.0 out of 5 stars Synthesizer Nostalgia & Discovery April 29, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This collection is a mix of originals and rerecordings by other artists, and ordinarily I wouldn't touch anything not by the original artists. Here however there are exceptions. Some of the tracks are banal themes like Stallones "Lock Up", or the simplistic Yanni theme for the Jennifer Jason Leigh film "Heart of Midnight" (look out for the sound boom in shot in that one). There are odd curios such as the pleasant "Turtle Beach" track, and the booming "Das Boot" and "Big Trouble in Little China". But there are some great tracks in here as well, good enough to force a purchase.
Firstly there is the "Haunted Summer" track by Christopher Young - a melodic cathedral of ambience which sweeps you for a full bodied seven minutes of near religious experience akin to Brian Eno's "Ascent" (used in "Traffic"). Add to this the simple repetitionist love theme by Jack Nitzche from the bombed Kevin Costner/Tony Scott film "Revenge", also the inspired two toned pace of Tangerine Dream's track from "The Park is Mine" (early Tommy Lee Jones), and lastly pepper liberally with the Mark Ayres version of the "Bladerunner" theme - another seven minutes, and might I add in comparison with Vangelis' original - I actually prefer this powerful rendition of the classic track!
These four tracks save the compilation from complete novelty value, and they shine amongst early contributions to the synthesized cinema sountrack. It is a CD you will probably want to program on your CD player as the mix is a little odd, and sadly somewhat flat in the middle. However, I recommend the CD for the reasons above alone.
