Comments about the soundtrack for Alexander (Vangelis)

Edit | Delete
Many cues and themes are missing!

First of all, GREAT Soundtrack by Vangelis! I would say better than 1492 since it works well in the movie and also shows his maturity! Sure, 1492 rocks but Alexander is also cool!

Like previous Vangelis soundtracks, this also suffers from the same problems: Many of the main cues and themes are missing! For example, when young Alexander is wrestling, a theme resembling Titans and Vangelis's earlier album Voices is heard, but not in the soundtrack! Likewise, many of the delicate themes are missing.The war sequence theme In India(when Alexander fights the local tribes) is great!(sounds like Lord of the Rings!)with choirs. That is also not present.

Most of the music from the CD is there. But more of the cues could have been included!

I could go on like this for hours! It is sad that Sony Classical choose not to release the soundtrack in all its entirety! Let's hope we get one of those "More music from Alexander" CD's released soon by Sony!Likewise, the entire soundtrack to 1492 should also be released!
