Vangelis

So I was going on about Vangelis in a previous post and true to form I couldn't hold back from picking up some thankfully cheap copies of his cds. At time the guy can go totally over the top, but he can be perfectly sublime too (as the Bladerunner Soundtrack demonstrates).
<-Love that pic!

This track is a great "prog" trip through space. He has a lot of brillant albums and I especially love his prior band, Aphrodite's Child.

Talk about over the top, I think almost all his work with Jon Anderson of Yes fits that bill perfectly - some of it is pretty good and some of it embarassingly laughable.

But his range is so much more then just "Blade Runner" or "Chariots of Fire."
