Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cosmos (Audio CD)
Vangels music has played the soundtrack of most of my adult life. It is a pity that he has faded from view so much in recent years. It is a pity too that he has, on occasion, launched into some self-indulgent cacophanies such as Beaubourg; the 10 minutes and thirty-five seconds of which knocks the heart out of the first disc of this collection. Nevertheless there are some of his greatest pieces here, notably To The Unknown Man, Alpha and the theme from 'Cosmos'. All these I have elsewhere but to put his 'spacy' pieces together is a worthy effort. However, at only just over 40 minutes per disc I felt rather short changed. Hence the less than perfect score that Vangelis usually evokes from me.
