The score played a crucial role in the episode, set in a retro-futuristic 1987 seaside town where a love affair between two young women seems to warp space and time. – The Vinyl Factory
“Mansell’s score is the futuristic well of metallic effects and sad melodies that give ‘San Junipero’ its personality.” – Noisey
