This pressing sucks. The surface noise, crackling and repetitive loud pops are all over the place (on both records) and mostly overrule the soundtrack itself, especially for Side A and B. It's pretty much impossible to enjoy the layers and subtleties of this impressive and beautiful soundtrack on this vinyl pressing. After first listen, I am fighting the urge to just put the record outside of my front door, out on the street. Fuck it.
Agalas
A shockingly bad pressing. My first and second copies full of surface noise, scratches, scuffs and non fill, even after cleaning on my RCM. Looks like digital is the way to go for this soundtrack unfortunately.
Felhann
Bad packaging which adds dirt (paper traces) to an already bad pressing. Better on some tracks than others but after hearing the original 180g Blade Runner soundtrack and what was achieved with that, this sounds quite cheap. Disappointing.
Leyl
Honest question: who in the hell paid 142 dollars for this?
Truthcliff
Typical GZ Media release these days. Pressing with a lot of background noise (wwzzzzzz) and an ugly inner sleeve from thick paper full of dirt. You have to buy new inner sleeves and LPs need thorough cleaning before you can play them.
Bludsong
Here also fingerprints and signs of dirt / dust in a new sealed copy. Many static/pops. I cant use it at the time. need to be cleaned. sounds bad. also the hole is to small. stucks on the turntable and hard to remove. very disappointed of a record pressed in 2017 ^^
MeGa_NunC
This pressing sucks. Pops and crackles on quiet passages, static sounds and inconsistent mastering. A really poor job. Very disappointing.
Arashilkis
My Amazon purchase was also terrible. Not to dirty, but the surface noise was unbearable. The volume was so quiet I turned up the amp, which I never have to touch. Disk 2 was really warped.Replacement is on the way.Edit: Just received my replacement and now disc A is warped.I have requested a refund.
Djang
Am i reading this correct, that a 180g double set is housed as a single (e.g. no gatefold) with this pressing? if so, no wonder why splitting is frequent :(
Andromakus
Great dronical soundtrack, very evocative and massive, with some references to the Vangelis 1982 original compositions. Anyway, the Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley and Lauren Daigle tracks just ruin the mood. It would be better to place all of then at the end of the second disc or, even better, do not feature them at all and have only one single disc of, by the way, great and ambiental soundscapes.
Monn
I had a look and without the songs that you mention, the album would indeed fit on a single disc with three to four minutes left.
INwhite
I'm speechless... This Blu-spec CD 2 format is amazing! It sounds so extremely precise and pure... I recommend to anyone who's wondering if it's worth buying - well, it is!
Enone
Again overpriced - Great informative reviews .Brilliant powerful soundtrack by the Zimmer Frame Nothing can compare to Vangelis - I have read and heard ten thousands tracks but Science Fiction ;) 1492
Quemal
I bought mine brand new, and it came marked, dirty and with scratches. The spindle hole is too small which makes the record hard to remove, and some of the photos on the sleeve are also low quality.All that being said, this is an amazing soundtrack, and after a good clean I'm happy with the quality of this record.
Ndlaitha
Poor printing, poor sound, a lot of pops and cracks.. 21€ wasted. Avoid!

Mr_Mix
I listened to this back-to-back tonight with the 180 gram vinyl 2018 reissue of original blade runner soundtrack. What a wonderful way to spend an early summer evening. Each album is good in its own way - but here are some comments (sometimes comparing with the original movie Vangelis soundtrack vinyl)1) Sound quality.... My copy does NOT have fingerprints or signs of dirt/mishandling from a new-purchased copy. Looks clean right out of the packaging. I washed each vinyl with spin-clean record cleaning wash, carefully, just to prep for the ideal listening experience. Out of the 2 vinyls, 4 sides total, there were 3 instances where the lower-volume gradient intros did have some light crackle, i.e. instead of listening to the growing pure drone of a synth there are some 'fireplace crackle' vinyl artifacts audible when first putting the cartridge to the vinyl on 3 sides. Well for whatever reason when I gave the vinyl a light sweep with a carbon fiber brush, on the 2nd play this crackle, which mind you is probably a tolerable amount for many, was probably decreased by 40% or so. No longer as irritating. And it's only in the first minute or so, i.e. very outer edges of the vinyl. For the rest of each vinyl surface crackle was almost nonexistent, i.e. about what you would expect from a good clean new well-manufactured vinyl record. Thus I have to report that this is not vinyl that has every sound come at you, regardless of dynamics (i.e. especially quiet parts), out of the blackest of empty silences with no surface noise whatsoever. I wish it was so. This is a paradox of vinyl altogether (i.e. sounds better than lossy digital formats, but does bear some artifacts). 2. Music quality.....Original Blade Runner soundtrack has much more emphasis on crime-noir themes in a sci-fi setting. Suitable for a focus on Deckard as someone who is a detective who is intrigued by a dame and is in pursuit of something where outside forces are powerful and pushing back. The Vangelis stuff works well because it's like a futuristic jazz sax at times, at other times has a piano section that you imagine in a dusty, whiskey filled bar - goes with the loney detective seeking occasional respite in a rough world. Some of this carries over to Blade Runner 2049 of course, but in the case of 2049 there is more of a ongoing focus (I think) of the protagonist being puzzled/affected/haunted by his own (implanted) memories and shifting sense of identity/affinity. I'm sure others who study these movies may disagree but I'm just offering an interpretation here, and I'll just throw out the tentative suggestion that Deckard throws himself outside into the world more, whereas K is much more "in his own head" from even the very start of the movie. So, the newer 2049 sound track has more atmospheric surges and swells, like the things K is trying to sort out in his own head, and the piano theme here is comparatively much more sparse (just about the only non-synth melodic element). Bottom line - there are overlaps between the two soundtracks but also differences in thematic emphasis. So, the newer soundtrack suits the more recent film. Also as a 2018 listener I just think Vangelis is great for reedy synth pads and textures that by now are presets on so many hardware synths today. The newer soundtrack seems to have more processed sounds for more modern times, i.e. the otherworldly pads and droning sounds and other textures are the next evolution. Timbre/distortion etc is pushed more in the newer soundtrack as part of the sonic construction.3. Coherence of presentation.....I wish the pop song did not exist at the end of side 4. It doesn't fit the mood of the soundtrack but I guess it's nice like an alarm clock to remind you to get up and take the cartridge off the vinyl. It's basically the 'end credits ' song that gets you to rustle about, gather your things, and leave the movie theater. But out of a whole long soundtrack you get no elvis or adele etc for all the rest of the vinyl, which is nice. 4. Packaging.....I wish the packaging of the vinyl for Blade Runner 2049 was more epic - gatefold, etc. But it's good enough just because it represents what is basically the movie poster on the front cover. I'm sticking the vinyl in some mobile fidelity sleeves then sticking the cardboard outer sleeve in some protective mylar with backing - it will look nice that way.Final review, then, subjective score:Quality of soundtrack: 8.5/10. It's unique, it's great, it takes me places. I will re-listen often.Quality of pressing 7/10. Not the disaster people make it out to be. But I do recommend cleaning the vinyl. I don't know why there is the 'intro of vinyl/right at beginning' crackle. Quality of packaging 5/10 - averageListened to using ortofon 2M Bronze cartridge.

I received my copy from Amazon and like others have already said. The Vinyl is pretty filthy out of the package. Lots of surface noise, so this is a pretty disappointing pressing. I did a deep wet clean and it helped a bit.
Black_Hawk_Down
Wait.... it says "Limited to 2500 copies" yet the last picture shows a number higher than 2500 (2518 to be exact)... what the heck?
Der Bat
I believe this might be because it had a terrible problem with seam splits so they had the overstock/replacement sleeves numbered higher for those.I've been buying records for years and this was one of the worst handled packaging/quality control presses I've ever seen.I had to send mine back three separate times for seam splits to the same spot on top.I've noticed that it's mentioned quite a few times with others.Plus with their return policy they did pay for the return shipping but it didn't come with tracking so if you didn't pay for the tracking and something happened you were SOL.Simply put this was a catastrophe for releases as far as execution of packaging.
Hanad
Good call, maybe it was in 2500-2599 range. idk thats weird
Sirara
I have #528 and yeeeeeah... people weren't lying. The quality control over this pressing is bad. I bought a sealed copy straight from the website (which they are still available, don't buy any from discog sellers just yet) and there were hand/finger prints from somebody handling these without gloves. The sound quality is amazing, but it does have a lot of static/pops in it. Still haven't experienced skipping. It will probably get better once I clean the records.
Watikalate
I have issue No. 0077. Awesome music, I'm sure the value will increase in the future!
Fenius
Worst pressing I've come across in years. DO NOT BUY!
Stan
Ok so a lot of you might be interested in this, I got my copy and cleaned it with a Smart Matrix Pro and played it to find it wasn't too bad, more surface noise and distortion than I would be happy with but hey its vinyl.Anyway after playing the entire album I decided to clean it again for the second time...........and now listening to it my copy is NEAR PERFECT with basically no surface noise or distortion whatsoever and sounds amazing.
Fast Lovebird
Same here. I cleaned my copy with disco-antistat and it plays and looks perfect.
Wrathshaper
It is the UK/EU release bought through Juno around two months ago. However I must stress that for me it needed a proper clean with a vacuum cleaner, a simple wipe does nothing.
Phalaken
Hi, was this the EU/GZ version? I am desperate to get a copy of this where the second disc plays without a ton of noise, especially on side D. I know the song at the end isn't great but I hate constant clicks on fade outs and every copy I have heard seems to have this...?
Hulbine
The quality control over this seems to be the pits. Tracks 1 and 2 on Disc 1, Side A, right from a sealed copy has a gouge that is causing major pops until Track 2 is amost done. Side B has so many "handling marks on it". My regular copy had far better quality control over this one. Disc 2 both sides have splotches in places. What where they thinking this being a premium release?
Oveley
I am having similar situation with my 2 LP's. I agree with the premium release comment.
Vudomuro
I gave my copy a VPI clean after a quick listen, and can report a strong resonant sound.Very deep & atmospheric. There is minimal surface noise, but given that a lot of the material sits literally on the noise floor it's acceptable.There are occasional background pops & ticks. But I have not heard anything that disrupted my enjoyment of the music.
ZEr0
Soundtrack is superb (with the exception of that last track/pop song) but the pressing leaves much more to be desired. There was dusty paper residue on the records from the sleeves they came in (people should stop packing them in those thick paper/cardboard material) and all sides had plenty of pops and clicks throughout. Initially I thought it was from the paper residue stuck within the grooves but after cleaning them twice on my own and one professionally done at the record store, the pops and clicks remain. Epic, Alcon Sleeping Giant Records and Sony Music...step up the quality yo.
Aurizar
I received my copy from amazon the other week and the vinyls looked like crap. Big hairlines, scratches, smudges and fluid stains on the vinyl. I filed a complaint and quickly got a replacement. I looked even worse than the first one. I had to clean the records twice before daring to drop the needle. The sound is not too bad but lacks dynamics compared to the CD I borrowed from my friend. Disappointed about this pressing for sure. And the packaging feels very lacklustre and rushed. And why no gatefold? The music however is very good indeed.
Punind
Finally I received my two copies 0552 and 0553. I opened only one. I'm very disappointed first from the shipping - one angle was bended on both albums. Also there is awful background noise. Do you have the same issue with the noise? It's constant. Not only popping. I'll try to clean the records tomorrow. I hope this to fix some of the noise. I suspect shallow groove. I have the same noise when I'm playing Picture vinyls.
NiceOne
I had the same issue (one angle bended). It's a pity but I doubt it would be a good idea to send it back and wait for another copy.Regarding the sound quality I need to listen it better.
Samulkree
Yes, i've received also my copy with a bended corner. bad shipment and package.. And yes, also background noise on side B. I agree with some of the other reviews, it feels like a cheap cashgrab. The LP's from Interstellar, Oblivion, Dark Knight are very much better.. what do i say? They are TOP !!!
kewdiepie
Mine sounds okay after cleaning but it is slightly warped. Also disappointed in the packaging. Hoping this soundtrack will get a better release in the future.
Arith
I've sold 3 copies of this here in the last month, 2 for 65.00cdn and 1 for 70.00cdn. Not sure where Discogs is getting there statistics from, looks like they're raising the prices to get higher listings for more fees.

Fesho
Has anyone run a copy of the vinyl pressing through a vacuum record cleaner and has it helped get rid of any of the surface noise?
Exellent
Fantastic music. But as said already... one of the worst rush job pressings EVER! With little to no attention to quality control. Mine looked like it had been rubbed across the concrete when it arrived.
Gogal
Judging by the opinions, it is better to go for a CD version. Shame.
Kemath
This feels like a cheap cashgrab. 4 licensed songs are entirely missing, (but they are still credited on the inlay) the presentation is lacking, the inlays are presented with scaled up screenshots... I am not going to miss this one in my collection....It really lacks love and care, it's treated like a mere merchandise product
Modifyn
Yet they are on every single other release and the copyright for this song is on the inlay - seriously your comment is very subjective and misses the point.They could have packed them on an additional smaller 7inch to not "ruin the flow"The vinyl release costs more than the CD version and simply offers less and the overall quality is not good at all.
VAZGINO
The licences song on the vinyl would totally ruin the flow when listening. It's obvious they just wanted Zimmer´s music on there. Waste of wax if they included the licensed song if you ask me.
FireWater
Adding to the chorus. My first copy was so bad I sent an email to GZ, which of course they did not answer but it made me feel better. Their pressing standards are a disgrace. I do not understand how brand new records can be scratched between coming off the press and going into sleeves. I don't understand how bits of black vinyl pellets make it all the way into the sleeve with the records. I don't understand how clicks and pops from faulty stampers make it past the test press stage and I especially don't understand why people at the GZ can't put records into sleeves without bending and creasing the inner sleeve so that there are ugly creases across the artwork. I have bought 3 copies and cobbled together a *playable* version, which still has clicks and pops in all the wrong places but I can't be bothered to try and get anything better. The quality of the pressing is disgusting, frankly.An update after hearing 5 copies of this album. Generally the first disc seems ok but the second one (sides C&D) are dreadful: there are often hard pops between tracks 1 and 2 on side C and I have found that on 4 copies the closing moments of the final track on side D are marred by constant clicks. An absolutely awful pressing and all copies seem to have handling bends and creases to the inner sleeves.
Sorryyy
LP One (Side A and B) is bad....C and D is better but not really good. After cleaning, I can say "Its a bad pressing"...don't buy. I think that music have big quiet moment...its better to listen in FLAC...Its not a soundtrack for vinyl...Its my opinion.
Jark
No fingerprints on my numbered edition but they were dirty and there is surface noise when played. They aren't warped. I agree that the last song is somewhat out of place. The music is great but the inclusion of 'Tears In The Rain' by Vangelis reminds you of just how high the bar of comparison is to his score.
Villo
Mine isn't warped and plays ok. The LPs are dirty and need cleaning right after purchase. The sleeve and innersleeves are of poor quality and it should have been put in a gatefold. All in all not a perfect edition but not horrible either. Great music :)
Kekinos
I enjoy the soundtrack very much, but the lp was really not up to standards. Really hard pops in the second song and on the b side there was even some sort of chalk like substance on the vinyl? I don't know if I got unlucky with my delivery but I was hoping for some top notch quality (i mean thats what you want when you buy vinyl, right?).
Thiama
Not a gatefold (with poor printing quality on what was printed), records dusty and dirty out of the sleeve. At least I love the soundtrack enough to say this is a worthwhile purchase.
Clodebd
Confirming that the download is for a 320kbps mp3, and includes the the tracks not included on the vinyl (Sinatra, Elvis).
Swordsong
I got this in yesterday and it sounds like garbage. I can't tell if the thing is just super dirty or if there are physical blemishes on the record. Anyone have any luck getting this thing to sound any better. I'm highly disappointed in this record.
Vozuru
Fantastic movie and awesome soundtrack, but could have been a better package overall. Perhaps there will be a select special edition released later on with different cover art and colored vinyl or something. Regardless I'm glad that this is out anyway because this music represents perhaps the best movie I've seen in a decade.

This is a bad pressing in bad packaging!It's the first time I've ever received a brand new record with split seams already, fingerprints, and a hefty amount of surface noise and pops. Even the center hole on disc 1 is too small so I have to force it on to my 1200. Also, the graphic design is off somehow, it kind of looks stretched/pixelated. It doesn't look like a record cover? The inner sleeves are of the hard paper type that scratches the record as you pull it out, and they were already chafed and ripped inside the non-gatefold flimsy outer cover, as if the record plant employee had needed to force them in, but of course only after getting his fingerprints all over the records themselves while he or she unceremoniously inserted them into the sandpaper type inner sleeves.The pressing sounds lifeless. No matter how loud I play it, it just sounds dull.And to top it off, dear lord, that Almost Human track.... W T F ?
Granigrinn
I have the same issue with background noise. It's awful. Sounds like cheap picture vinyl. And I'm using very good stylus - Ortofon 2M Black with nude shibata. I'm very disappointed from this release. Total crap.
Yggdi
Yeah I've had to send for a replacement twice and it just keeps coming back with seam splits in the cover.Now I'm not sure if it's happening in shipment or before but this is ridiculous.
Whiteflame
Agreed, Only Human is garbage compared to the atmosphere the rest of the record inspires. I've been disappointed by the level of dust on mine, and a badly cut centre hole on record one.Don't get me bloody started on the print quality of these (non-poly) sleeves - pixellated images that really let down what should've been a premium product, to accompany a marvellous film.
Dilmal
Mine is just like that so you are not alone. Both discs have a center hole that is too small.
Kriau
I have a numbered copy but mine has a defective hole which makes it hard to fit on my Sanyo Direct Drive, but I also got a non numbered one and that has a better hole. Be careful when buying this as you might get a copy that is defective.
Haracetys
Right, OK. Yeah keep sending it back then until the hole isn't defective. Good luck
Drelalen
Should not have to do that on a brand new LP.
Thoginn
a "defective" hole?? Just make it bigger! Use a screwdriver or better still a biro pen
Malann
Mine sounds like recorded infront of a fireplace - both discs dusty and the person who operated the shrinking/package machine not only fucked up the jacket, the innersleeves too...another great product, another happy customer!
Risa
Brand new, arrived on the day of release--and it's got fingerprints and dust on it. And it's warped. Both discs. Unfortunate. Poor quality control. Both discs are noisy, as well. Not the terrible pop-click noise, just a general-but-apparent surface noise. It's not a huge deal, but I'm still wondering why people can't press quiet, flat records every time. In this day and age. On top of that, if there was ever a soundtrack that deserved a gorgeous gatefold, it's Blade Runner 2049, but this is just a double-disk sleeve. All in all, disappointing. Of course, this is how they get ya to keep buying these flawed things--I'm not returning it. I'll still listen to it and love it for the great film score that it is. Don't let the bastards grind you down.EDIT: After a good cleaning, the surface noise diminished some. For all its faults, this pressing sounds decent, actually. Not amazing, but decent.
Sagda
me too after cleaning Its better...I bought other pressing in "waxwork record" is it's even worse as pressing.I have the impression that LPs are getting worse after leaving the factory, especially US pressing (clik, pop, noise...) The only and better is "Music on Vinyl". I love it...good pressing, great work.
Dog_Uoll
This is the 150g version. Just if anyone is wondering
Gerceytone
This is a very poorly thought out and delivered package. The lack of a gate-fold, choice of artwork and overall filthiness of the wax and I was very underwhelmed overall. The music and the movie deserved more from its soundtrack.I expected more care.
Leniga
Don't think it sounds too bad on my system. Not spectacular, but with my Rel sub there is plenty of low end synth thump where required. The music is solid, if a little slavish to the Vangelis score for Blade Runner. Typical GZ Media pressing. Filthy as all hell and apparently handled by people whose hands are made of butter.
mr.Mine
What can you say about this soundtrack? It seems to have its followers, but by-and-large its a complete turkey in comparison to the original score, which was about 25% of the film to start with. It cuts its own path partly, but a lot of elements are very reminiscent of the Vangellis score. This vinyl cut then, not a lot of effort gone into the sound here. Its very very low volume stuff, you will need to crank it high to get anything out of it. From the looks of it it was pressed as GZVINYL, and has absolutely no cutting engineer inscriptions whatsoever, leading to the only conclusion it is a direct from digital file transfer to vinyl by a machine. If this score still stands up in future years, then I'd put money on a 10th anniversary edition re-release, hopefully cut by someone with talent, like Kevin Gray or Chris Bellman, who can bring out the sound a lot more. Hardcore fans and collectors only here I would say for this release.

Mr.Champions
Yeah mine isn't even numbered!! Inspite of that being in the description.to find out on top of that that this isn't even that good would be (hopefully) the last and most painful kick in the nuts that has been 2017!

In my humble opinion to offer a Ltd edition, only to have a regular edition made available the same day without any discernable difference reeks.Why not just make a high quality record available to all and call it a day. The inclusion of Only human is utter lunacy. Its like your asking me to actually sit down to listen to a record knowing full well I'll have to fucking stand up at some point to advance my needle to the next track. OK, the sound quality and the pressing.. The records are filthy out of the sleeves and need cleaning. The pressings are a good 180g. The sound quality I found to be really quite high, good clarity and a really full sound. But the pressing is full of pops and crackles. Track two sound like it had a massive scratch but it passed in 4 revolutions. Overlook the crackles and you have what is a well mastered soundtrack. I bet the Jóhann Johansson version if allowed to conclude would have been brilliant. Instead what we have is a pretty decent soundtrack with odes to Vangelis... I hope I grow to like it nearly half as much as I adore the genius original.
Uaha
How is this not a limited edition of 2049? Missed opportunity.

I wish I could give two different ratings for the media and the packaging.Let's get the good out of the way. This soundtrack sounds amazing (with the exception of Almost Human). Very few pops or clicks on all sides for my copy. Fascinating electronic and (dark) ambient music. "Sea Wall" is a roller coaster of emotions just like the scene it represents.The bad: the packaging. Most, if not all of the images seemed to have been blown up from smaller sizes and appear pretty low-resolution when scrutinized. The records are inside of printed inner sleeves, nothing more. The printed inner sleeves and outer jacket are both very thin, so I got seam splits on all of it, unfortunately. Even worse, the sides of the printed inner sleeves are not the same height, so your records will actually be exposed to the elements on the shorter side unless you put it in another inner sleeve that's tall enough (which I recommend). The packaging could have been thought through some more.I'm not sure why "Almost Human" needed to be in this movie or this soundtrack in any way. It's a generic, forgettable pop song that didn't sound great on vinyl.
Gold Crown
is this for the 180 gram? I preordered that from the official site.
Mr.Death
Yes that's it. Thanks it's on here now and listed.

Currently being sold her for more than retail - which is £19.99 - it's not limited... try going AFK, get some fresh air and save a few quid.
Vozilkree
Apparently the CDs of this have mastering problems and distortion that's not present on the downloads. Can anyone verify?
Ranterl
I thought I had ripped badly, but notice noise straight away on the intro of the 1st track at least
Dalarin
Am I the only person slightly annoyed that the CD doesn't include a printed track listing?
Kanek
...and in due course the "limited editions" were followed by a regular CD release.Good luck ebay flippers selling those £50, £75, £100 versions. I just bought a normal one for £13 in my local HMV.
Dagdalas
Nah I wasn't saying that; merely that some run-of-the-mill soundtrack collectors were scrabbling to use the website in the fear that the versions sold there were going to be all there was. And that some other opportunists were hoping that some of that first bunch of people would be willing to pay over the odds to buy from *them* once the official stock ran out. Now I'm sure a FEW will - as you say, those who care specifically for collecting limited editions - but the majority who just wanted to own the music will have been happier to see the regular release turn up in their local music stores.
Talvinl
Are you saying there is no demand for limited or special editions? I'm pretty sure that the limited release will be hunted for by collectors in the future, whereas the standard edition will not.
Bliss
Excellent film. Horrible soundtrack, Hans Zimmer was not a clever option. No Vangelis, well the was a pitty...
Nikok
I wouldn't go as far as "horrible", but yeah it could have been a lot more in-keeping with the spirit of the original than the wall-of-noise approach that we got.With Vangelis clearly out of the equation (and we all wonder what Johansson's music was/would have been like), I wonder who *else* might have been a good fit. Mothersbaugh? Serra? Arnold? Some combination of the above?
Falya
Good news for some, i hope :) This morning, i passed by my favorite soundtrack seller website here in USA (Screen Archives Entertainment) and they had finally today listed it for sale (pre-order) It doesnt say anything about it being limited or a double cd, but who cares, right? It has all 24 songs listed and a yummy pricetag too. As of today, other sites also appear to have the film score listed as available for pre-order. For my part, i say thanks SAE! and happy shopping everyone!!
Still In Mind
... this soundtrack sound like a Native Instruments synth preset to me ...
Mr_NiCkNaMe
Just to let you all know the site as of 25/26 October had issues processing int'l orders with Paypal and would not allow the order to be completed. I called their help-line and was able to order over the phone for 30 bucks US.
Doomblade
I was having the same issue, but when I switched to my laptop from my phone, and DIDN'T use the 'same as billing address' option, it let me order no problem (before then, the Place Order button wasn't showing up).
Ochach
Thanks for info. I checked, and i was processing by pay pal 25 october, and it went ok.
Gralmeena
Well folks just wanted to let you all know that the preorders for this version of the soundtrack on vinyl seem to be out. I went back to the site to look over the preorder again to read more information and the site says it's unavailable. It was a 200gram Audiophile version. But there is a 150 gram version up for preorder on Bullmoose now. Here's a link for that one. http://www.bullmoose.com/p/26111283/blade-runner-2049-soundtrack-2-lp-150g-w-download-insert
