3 stars The main thing I like about this album it that it doesn't claim to be a best of album, but rather a reprisal of Vangelis albums from 1990 to 1999. It goes back to the albums made in this period and selects a sample from each which are then compiled into one CD spanning the entire decade. This may seem as a cheep way to sell more albums but I like the idea of a reprisal of music as it lets you think back on the music. Despite the fact "Reprise" may seem like a random assortment of songs, it actually flows very well which I think is due to creative arrangement.

"Reprise" has all (well, most) the most memorable songs from 1990 to 1999 which includes the famous "Conquest of Paradise" which was a world wide number hit and it remained at the Top of the German charts for three months. There are many other memorable songs which mesh well together on this album. The CD art and Booklet aren't just cheap and low-budget but they give a short summary of all the albums which songs were taken from for Reprisal as well as many cool pictures of Vangelis's equipment. Of course, there is nothing like owning the actual albums of Vangelis, which is why I can't give it more than three stars. But this is a very good place to start with his works. Good, but non-essential
