When reviewing a score, you have to take into consideration the entire product -- a single memorable cue does not a great score make.

As for the album presentation, as much as I personally do enjoy the music from Bladerunner, I can't help but agree the album situation is a mess. I personally find the '94 album to be the best presentation currently available, but to me it looses a whole star for having dialogue over the music. When will album producers finally learn we don't want dialogue on our score albums! If I want to hear the music and dialogue together, I'll watch the movie!
