Biography

There is far more to Vangelis than his Academy Award winning, platinum, #1-charting 1981 album Chariots Of Fire and its #1 title song. Odyssey - The Definitive Collection (Hip-O Records), released November 4, 2003, celebrates his most famous and enduring recordings over 30 years, from 1973 to 2003, from his pioneering electronic music to the now classic "Chariots Of Fire" to a new ...

Amazon.co.uk Review

Most composer collections are like those "clips" episodes that you get at the end of a long-running TV series which is low on budget. The tracks are akin to episode highlights and aren't really sequenced to do more than acknowledge what's made the composer popular. That's not the case with this collection. Although it only features two previously unreleased cues ("Theme from Bitter Moon" and "Theme from The Plague"), the whole album has been segued together to make one long unique listening experience. Opening to the lapping of waves (a watery motif that continues), "Bon Voyage" from Oceanic is a perfectly subtle place to start. The tracks are then sequenced according to an organic flow from the end of one to the beginning of the next, as demonstrated by the spacing of four cues from 1492 across the album. If you're unfamiliar with Vangeli's electronic soundscapes outside of Bladerunner (the drip-drip of "Rachel's Song" is included), there's no better place to dive in for an hour. --Paul Tonks

Amazing. This album encapsulates the very best of Vangelis's work. It is dreamy but powerful collection certain to catapult you into a multitude of audio landscapes including space, oceans and the Far East. A number tracks have ecclesiastic overtones rich with monastic chanting and almost regal rifts. Full of ambience and acoustic scenery it succeeds in not having even one weak track. Psalmus Ode is one of the most moving tracks I've ever heard. A definite must for anyone who enjoys soundtracks and enchanting music.

I was really into Vangelis in the late 70s and early 80s. He's always beena bit inconsistent with quality, and after some duff releases I neverreally bothered with him from the late 80s onwards. I only picked up thisalbum because I was curious and because it was dirt cheap in CD sale. Iwas very pleasantly surprised.
It is a compilation drawing on his major 90s releases. The playing orderhas been very well selected to make a smooth, coherent listeningexperience. I was also struck by the quality of the music. There arelilting piano runs, majestic washes of elecetronics, tasteful soundeffects and some superb vocal performances, both solo and in a splendidbaroque sounding choir. I was so taken with this album, I've startedbuying up the original source albums e.g. El Greco and Oceanic.
After several years' absence, I'm back with Vangelis!

I feel for people who have just these snippets to this great man's music and are happy with that. There has to be a market as he fires off or his record company releases endless variations on compilation CD's. I will concur that he is a bit hit and miss, but thankfully he hits more then he misses. I am a collector of the music of Vangelis and being interested from the time of Heaven and Hell. I snap these compilations up happily enough, and bang them on to whet my appetite for his CD's. I love oceanic.

Track 6 Come to Me: Excellent, mystic vocals.
Track 11 West across the ocean sea: What words can describe this feeling, gobsmacked!
Track 13 Rachel's Song. Lovely vocals,the trouble with Vangelis is that when he is on song, words can not do it justice and this is one.
Track 16 Dawn: Great ending. A Sandwich?

This is just some of all the great tracks on this CD that I love slightly more then the rest. But It's close.

There is a fine booklet with this CD of mine. At the back it has all the albums that the tracks have been taken off. Get it, and if you love his music as much as I do, just work yourself down the list. It is worth it

Another `Best Of' selection to whet the appetites of us Vangelis fans in the years when no material is released. Only this `Reprise', released in 1999, of his work for Warner in the 1990s has a couple of previously unreleased tracks. These two are the theme from his soundtrack for Roman Polanski's quite awful film `Bitter Moon'; and the strangely unappealing `Psalmus Ode' from his soundtrack to another film called `The Plague.'

Covering Vangelis's work in the 1990s from his disappointing `The City' through to the fantastic and phantasmal `El Greco', the remaining fifteen tracks, skilfully and freshly segued into one another, come from `1492' (five tracks); `Oceanic' and `El Greco' (three each); `Voices' (two); and `The City' and `Blade Runner' (one apiece). (Although the film `Blade Runner' was released in 1982, the soundtrack had to wait over a decade to appear.)

Some of the tracks (such as `Bon Voyage' and `Fields of Coral') on this reprise are excerpts. And the choice of tracks is not necessarily the best, in my opinion. But the selection does show how Vangelis has mellowed and become more reflective with age. There is none of the anger or sense of acceleration, for example, that accompanied much of his work for RCA in the 1970s, and occasionally appeared in his work for Polydor in the 1980s. But there are still some classic tracks here to inspire anyone new to his work to explore further.

This compilation provides a fairly good insight into Vangelis' music of the 90s, when he was on the EastWest label. However, I think that the choice of songs (made, I think, by Vangelis himself) could have been better.

The album focuses on the slower, quieter, more new-age songs from his repertoire on that particular label. While the best-known hit of that era, Conquest of Paradise, provides a more dynamic texture to the overall sound of the album, the rest is mostly on the quieter side of the spectrum of his music. Some tracks might be regarded as "fillers" (although I'm far from calling any of his music this way!), for example the opening to Conquest of Paradise, or the lovely, but short piano-based Dream of Surf, could've been dropped for some better known track, like End- or Love-theme from Bladerunner. I would also choose a different song from The City. Dawn is a nice atmospheric, ambient instrumental, but is hardly the best song off that album.

Nonetheless, Reprise is a very good album, relaxing and enjoyable. I just wish it had more better-known tracks. Vangelis however had apparently his own mind about the tracklist. what can you do? He's the boss! :)
