2 stars Were it not for the Oscar-winning film score, for a quite over-rated Hugh Hudson movie, this album would probably have enjoyed a lesser fame. Nonetheless, it is still one of the more boring music scores by Vangelis I ever heard, and since I owned a vinyl record I never really enjoyed it much. "Titles" was a huge hit, a popular and very accessible melody but nothing outstanding. The rest of the album is boring ambient, synth-laden "elevator music" that IMO cannot satisfy a demanding prog rock listener. Not recommended unless you are a Vangelis completist or if you like boring background soundtrack music.
