To all of you....
No one can compare Vangelis' Chariots of Fire with John williams' Raiders of the lost ark!! The latter one is far superior...
I'm not saying that chariots of fire is bad, i did enjoy it a lot when i got it, but right now it just doesn't sound good....
I do hate synths most of the time, but i do like them very much when it is a sound that cannot be achieved with acoustic instruments...that's what synths are all about!!!
If you imitate a choir with a synth it sounds AWFUL (Titanic, anyone?), or if you imitate sounds such as claps (just like chariots' main theme)...well, i don't think it will sound good either way...
Chariots of fire had its day, and it can still be enjoyable, but the synths do make it sound terrible...
Synths can be a great tool if used properly (yes, creating sounds that aren't possible with acoustic instruments), and Vangelis' music would sound much better if he used a real orchestra...
