Where's the rest of the stars?

There're a few stars missing in this review's conclusion, the correct amount of stars should be:

As heard in the movie: *****
As heard on (the commercial '94 '07) albums: ****

The sole reason for the 'on album' four stars is the incomplete tracklist, you still need the bootlegs to be complete. The sound quality on the official releases is excellent, but it's not complete, not the pure soundtrack as it is.

During my study (musictechnology), we spent a lesson watching (snippets of) Blade Runner, to analyze the music and the soundscape. Yes? Hello? This movie and its music made it to college as a reference object to study!

Can you really watch this clip with dry eyes and think: 'nah, two stars, three at most'?

Or is it just ye olde conservative Filmtracks point of view on using synthesizers? They can do nothing right, it seems.
