4 stars After the hit "Titles" on "Chariots of fire", Vangelis proceeded in a similar way to produce another great radio friendly hit: "Theme from Antarctica": very floating, symphonic, ethereal, majestic & emotional, the sound is absolutely crystal clean. The VERY sophisticated & refined overall sound is a bit like the "Soil Festivities" and "Blade Runner" albums. Along with the "Blade Runner" album, it is the beginning of his best created atmospheric soundscapes: the deeply floating, echoed & sustained keyboards sounds occur, like on the "Mask" album. The weak point is the repetitive parts in the compositions: despite the involved tracks do not use the same keyboards sounds, one may consider some of them as catchy variations on a same theme, i.e. variations on the first track "Theme from Antarctica". I find that the album has a rather dynamic & cold atmosphere, absolutely not as warm as "Mask". Nevertheless, it is an excellent album from Vangelis.

Rating: 4.5 stars
