Customer Review

on 1 September 2005
This is a truly excptional album. I have been listening to Vangelis for a number of years now but this is without doubt the best thing he has ever done. I bought El Greco when it was commercially released in 1998 and I deliberately don't play it too often in case I get too used to it! It is a distinctly Vangelis album, steeped in joyous melancholy, but more than that, it is an album where Vangelis as composer and not just as innovator comes to the forefront. It is a composers template of how to draft an album; judiciously paced and balanced, with a masterlike grip over the timbre and dynamics. In a world of cheap, throwaway plastic pap, El Greco is an essential work for your collection.
