If you ever wanted to sit back and listen to music that takes you to another time or place then this is the CD for you! Vangelis at his VERY best - not one track can be disregarded as 'fluff or filler'. I first heard it playing in the background in a big time bookstore. I ran all over the store trying to find someone who could tell me WHO & what & where that music was coming from! I finally found someone to help me & I purchased the CD that VERY day. Have loved it ever since. I never ever get tired of it.

Vangelis is best known to many music fans for his film soundtracks. His score for Hugh Hudson's "Chariots of Fire" (1981) made quite a splash in its time; nowadays, however, his soundtrack music for Ridley Scott's "Blade Runner" (1982) is probably best-known and most highly regarded. Vangelis worked with Scott again on the 1992 film "1492: Conquest of Paradise," one of two films released that year in commemoration of the 500th anniversary of Christopher Columbus's voyage across the Atlantic. Even if "1492" the soundtrack does not quite reach the heights that Vangelis achieved in "Blade Runner," it still provides tuneful, anthemic music of the kind for which Vangelis is known. If you like Vangelis's work on film scores, or if you are a fan of the film "1492," you should enjoy this soundtrack.

Vangelis' New Age style doesn't seem like a good fit for an epic drama like Columbus' voyage to the New World, but it works. I think the darker themes are better. The tracks from Old World Spain are particularly good, mixing "guitar" in. A must for Vangelis fans.

1492-Conquest of Paradise is played on the Star clipper cruise ship every evening when they raise the sails on the ship. I bought the CD for that reason as it transcends me to the wide open seas with billowing sails. The CD arrived promptly, was well protected in a bubble wrap mailing envelope and was in mint condition. The sound of the recording is crystal clear. It ranks right up there as a classic like Vangelis' Chariots of Fire.

This CD was played while raising the sails on the Star Clipper. Listening to the CD brings me back to good sailing!

I first heard this music while watching a demonstration of Luzitania horses in Portugal this spring. The horses really seemed to be "into" the music and performed wonderfully. I too, loved the music and searched for it high and low. No one had it in stock and finally found it at Amazon. Now when I listen to this soundtrack I have vivid recollections of the beautiful horses in Portugal. All of my friends also enjoy the music.

This sound track is highly recommended.

I am really picky when it comes to soundtracks. Vangelis is one example of me being really fussy. I'm am not a real big fan of his work (chariots of fire to be example - it stole the academy award of john williams for indiana jones) however i do not disregard his work.

I first perked an interest into his work when watching alexander. I later found my way to 1492 conquest of paradise. I made my choice based on reviews that held high praise of this work. Which i agree.

I can not notice that 1492 and alexander sound so similar despite being different pieces of work (one being less synthetic than the other).

The 2nd track is the highlight. If you closely listen it sounds very similar to track 12 or 13 of alexander (across the mountains). Same tune for the voices but it is more varied in Alexander.

Track 3 monastry of rabida is another excellent piece, i personally think it sounds similar to a cirque dis solei soundtrack when it reaches the end.

The use of the choir is of high standard (except track 5, light and dark, tracks 9 and 10).

The use of synthesisers may annoy some people but track 8 (eternity - will make you think otherwise, once you pass the annoying start)

i also am not a real fan of 'new age' music, but vangelis makes it an exceptional listen. Highly recommended for those who want a powerful listening experience.
