From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

4 stars Definitely, one of the best soundtracks ever (along with Zimmer's Gladiator). If this page would focus on new age music or soundtracks, without a doubt this album would be rated with 5 stars. Notwithstanding, this is an excellent album with excellent arrangements and a wonderful sequence song after song. One of the many elements a prof album contains is the story behind the album, the concept; Conquest of Paradise contains that, because it is the soundtrack of the movie 1492, what else do you want? From the beginning you can start picturing the movie in your mind, and if you haven't seen the movie, you imagine all the scenes with the musical arrangements of Vangelis. The choral aspects are amazing, the instruments used are as well amazing. I have listened to this album at least 100 times and never get tired of it!
