A beautifully crafted and majestic album. Antarctica captures the mood and feel of this unique landscape with wonderful moments of surreal tranquillity. The opening theme is bright and cheerful while the tracks that follow descriptive, conjuring up distinct images of Antarctica. My particular favourites are tracks 2 and 6 which transport me to the region every time. A definite must for any Vangelis fan.

Vangelis composed, arranged produced and performed this staggeringly luscious album two years after he scored 'Chariots of Fire' for which he won an Oscar for Best Original Score. For this soundtrack album he conjures up a world of snow banks and freezing winds along with images of emporor penguins and polar bears and icebergs floating and dancing on the ocean surrounds. This album is the soundtrack to a little known Japanese film called "Antarctica" which came out in 1983. It's a pity cause I can't find any sign of the film on DVD anywhere.

Anyway. Back to the CD which is a triumph of musical genius and magical soundscapes which he conjures up so majestically on his synthesizers. He opens up with the Theme which is 7 mins 29 secs of Vangelis craftmanship at work setting the theme for the entire album. The rest of the album doesn't disappoint either. My other favourites are 'Antarctic Echoes', 'Memory of Antarctica' and 'Life of Antarctica'.

All fans of this man, and I'm sure there are plenty, will absolutely love this album and it's a real treat to hear it over the hi-fi. Just listening to it, the listener has images of snowy landscapes along with icebergs drifting along the edges and the wildlife hunting and searching for food in the water and on the surface of the deeply freezing plateaux. Terrific and stunning album.
