Ha ha ha! Vangelis and lack of origanality??? This is kind of joke. Chariots of Fire is one of the greatest score ever. Why? Because of it's new style. John Williams's Riders of Lost Ark is only postwagnerian another huge orchestral score. There is of courese beautiful main theme, but it is stll the same. LACK OF ORIGANALITY. Try to be objective.
