Review by Matti
PROG REVIEWER
3 stars Vangelis had made music for films before, but this Oscar-winning British film about the Parisian Olympic games in 1924 was the first one to receive international fame, and it also made Vangelis more famous; one of the Oscars was - deservedly - for the original score. [I remember when I saw the film probably in the 90's, the decade I listened to the music of Vangelis quite a lot, I thought that the music often seemed more outdated than on the album. But let's get to this single.]

The main theme 'Chariots of Fire' might have been the first Vangelis tune I ever heard. If I had to choose just one word to describe the tune, it would be "fresh". No need for more detailed descriptions, as I believe most of you are familiar with it. The B-side contains 'Eric's Theme' which is pretty good too, but not as delightful as the main theme. Typically soft electronic sounds of Vangelis of the time, with a rather slow tempo and not much progress. This can safely be labelled as Easy Listening instrumental music. The source album in its entirety is more recommendable than this single.
