Vangelis used to be a leader in electronic music. What went so terribly wrong? You know an artist is in trouble when his most currrent work sounds like second hand copies of earlier efforts. You can hear shades of Vangelis's scores for "Chariots Of Fire", "Blade Runner" and "1492" in his score for "Alexander" - and this is not a compliment. Vangelis should have composed a score that was unique and stood on its own two feet. Instead, the listener is left with wishy-washy shades of past efforts with horn blasts right out of Hans Zimmer's score for "Gladiator". Vangelis had better get his act together. Over the past few years, his albums have been very weak and his fans are getting tired of all the greatest hits collections he releases with the same 20 and 30 year old tracks combined with new throw-away demo tracks which should never have left the studio.
