5.0 out of 5 stars Chariots of Fire is stunning and brilliant., 15 Aug. 2008
This review is from: Chariots Of Fire (Audio CD)
They don't call Vangelis the keyboard wizard for nothing. This album only emphasizes that he is. Baring in mind this 25th Special Edition of the 1981 Oscar winning soundtrack was digitally remastered by Vangelis himself.

There are some terrific tracks on this album. For example we kick off with "Titles" which is the theme everyone is familiar with. In between we have "Five Circles", "Eric's Theme" and the epic closing track "Chariots of Fire" which goes on for 20 minutes 41 seconds. In fact I found the whole album extremely enjoyable and an incredible edition to any CD collection.

I think that Vangelis is the master of the keyboards and the synthesizer. The sounds that he's able to produce on them is astonishing. For example, on this album he conjures up trumpets, piano, strings and the odd percussion. Also he creates sounds of wind noise and bell sounds on the closing track along with added percussion. What an album.
