I have many soundtracks that are favourites but would take Bladerunner in terms of soundtrack purity. This for me is genre defining. The music performs its function in the traditional sense of adding atmosphere, drama et al to the movie presentation. Many soundtracks do this, but more than any other (musicals aside) you could imagine the music genuinely forming a continuous backdrop to the world that Bladerunner presents. An example would be the scene where Deckard is sitting at the Piano, a seamless interweaving of soundtrack and the in-scene piano playing. Just IMO. .
