I know this is just another of the MANY Vangelis compilations, but the selection of music, and the way it flows, make it a very good example. Magnificent music, for a bargain basement price!

Value for money doesn't always mean rubbish and that is definitely the case here! There is no weak track on this Vangelis cd - it flows majestically from start to finish through sounds that only this unique composer could make. The tracks are taken from the later part of his career, but the best bits are here - Conquest of Paradise, Blade Runner ('Tears In Rain' is a lovely touch - if you've seen the film...), Voices, Oceanic and the wonderful addition of 'Dawn' from The City. Ok, so it's only one cd, but to be honest it's got everything you need to start on your journey through the great man's music. You will NOT be disappointed! Stick it on and be whisked away...

There are a confusing number of Vangelis compilation albums. If you only ever buy one, make it this one. Whoever put this set together has a real feel for what the man is all about. Chariots of Fire has been mercifully omitted for once. The tracks that are on here are from several albums and soundtracks, including some obscure ones, but they blend together beautiful. It makes good background listening for when you are working but for best results immerse yourself with good headphones and a darkened room.

A particular highlight for me is the hauntingly beautiful Rachel's Song from Bladerunner, with sublime vocalising by Mary Hopkin. Chill out music doesn't come at a more perfect temperature than this.

Ordered for my wife - she had heard bits of it and could not find it anywhere else in the UK.
It arrived on time and 100% AOK - what more could you ask - we even got an immediate "ripped" copy via Amazon to play with while we waited for the hard copy on the CD.

Many Thanks
