Vangelis version.
How could you not prefer the original score performed by The Composer himself?
A seminal film-score if there ever was one!

I like the Antarctica score better.

I love Orchestras, but replacing most synths for violins kills the futuristic atmosphere of the original soundtrack.
 
 
I will always stay with the original.

This is a no-brainer: Vangelis' score for Blade Runner is among the greatest film scores
ever written, period.
 
Peace.

well said brother...

though I admit to not having heard the orchestral version.. though I did read your excellent review Andrea..I'll check it out if a copy falls into my lap.  I love Vangelis's music which is PERFECT for the mood and backdrop for one of my favorite movees of alltime.
