The Finest Yet,
This review is from: El Greco (Audio CD)
I have listened to Vangelis' music for as long as I can remember, although my interest began with "I'll find My Way Home". Over the years his albums have fallen into varying categories, those which are easy to listen to, those which are okay in the background and, more recently, those which are powerful.
For me, this is the best album Vangelis has produced yet, its eight movements soaring with emotion. Its so different from anything he has done before. Anyone who has only heard Chariots of Fire has never heard Vangelis at his best (I always thought that was an album he did in his sleep).
The first and last movements on the album are excellent and those in between are equally great. I eagerly await his next album (Mythodes, I think its called).
For those who like music that reaches deep into your mind and soul, who like music that stirs both the memory and the imagination then this album is both relaxing and emotive.
