Wonderful, the best

"I am really picky when it comes to soundtracks. Vangelis is one example of me being really fussy. I'm am not a real big fan of his work (chariots of fire to be example - it stole the academy award of john williams for indiana jones) however i do not disregard his work.

I first perked an interest into his work when watching alexander. I later found my way to 1492 conquest of paradise. I made my choice based on reviews that held high praise of this work. Which i agree.

I can not notice that 1492 and alexander sound so similar despite being different pieces of work (one being less synthetic than the other).

The 2nd track is the highlight. If you closely listen it sounds very similar to track 12 or 13 of alexander (across the mountains). Same tune for the voices but it is more varied in Alexander.

Track 3 monastry of rabida is another excellent piece, i personally think it sounds similar to a cirque dis solei soundtrack when it reaches the end.

The use of the choir is of high standard (except track 5, light and dark, tracks 9 and 10).

The use of synthesisers may annoy some people but track 8 (eternity - will make you think otherwise, once you pass the annoying start)

i also am not a real fan of 'new age' music, but vangelis makes it an exceptional listen. Highly recommended for those who want a powerful listening experience."
One of the best!

"If you ever wanted to sit back and listen to music that takes you to another time or place then this is the CD for you! Vangelis at his VERY best - not one track can be disregarded as 'fluff or filler'. I first heard it playing in the background in a big time bookstore. I ran all over the store trying to find someone who could tell me WHO & what & where that music was coming from! I finally found someone to help me & I purchased the CD that VERY day. Have loved it ever since. I never ever get tired of it."
