2 stars This album consists of two main things, the songs used in the movie Chariots of Fire, and the full composition by Evangelos Odysseas Papathanassiou, the man behind VANGELIS. The first side of the album, the side with the songs from the movie, it highlighted with the first piece, Titles, which is easily recognizable. The other songs are more the ambiance that was used in the movie rather than actual songs (except for 100 Meters). The second side, the full song Chariots of Fire, is a nice modern classical piece composed of only synthesizers. VANGELIS does a great job with all of the synthesizers, the man is a true genius with them, but the piece is just a little bit too slow to get to the main section for my liking. The climax though is amazing and very uplifting. It's a good album but not essential to any collection.
