I would have to say it is a toss up between Soil Festivities and Direct.  Direct is excellent because of it's more varied content, but at the same time, Soil Festivities is excellent because of it's focus.  I voted for Soil Festivities because it didn't have a vote yet, but could have easily voted for Direct too.

Not an easy choice, but at the end, I voted for Chariots of Fire.

Rhapsodies - Irene Papas is simply the best vocalist Vangelis ever worked with.

 Mask, largely because Movement 4 is one of my favorite pieces from him. After that, Antarctica, Direct, Soil Festivities, and Chariots of Fire.

A slew of wonderful records. Rewind a few years, and I'm voting for Direct...

...but this is here and now  Soil Festivities is simply one of the best from the Van man. I'm glad others have voted for it, too.

Direct!

Mask although it takes a bit of getting used to. Some of Vangelis best work is in the eighties for sure. After about 1985 he moved back to Greece  , Athens more specifically. Most of his best work was 1975-1985 (West London - Spheric studios I think) with Mask representing a full circle from Heaven and Hell and both featuring the English Chamber Choir heavily..

I hate that album. The song featuring Jon in particular. The Italian electro-pop duo (Chrisma) tells a ridicolous story, if you understand Italian. 
It's the only album in his huge discography that I really don't like.
