Vangelis hasn't done many OST's that would fit Filmtracks.

a few of the more conventional movies: (left out the old unknown ones)

Missing - no official score released (only some bootleg)

Chariots of Fire - will always have to fight with Raiders on this website, while the big 20min Chariots of Fire is a superb piece of music (truly unparalleled!), it's prolly too electronic for all these tender ears around.

Blade Runner - an album'esque official OST and a more complete/genuine bootleg. Blade Runner would deserve a Filmtracks review tho, eletronic as it may be, it *is* one of the best sci-fi movies around and the music has had a big role in making it a classic. Anyway, the world really needs an official *complete* OST.

The Bounty - No official OST, only a bootleg. Apart from 8..10 tracks that would make a great OST (when remastered), the rest is dull drums and repetitions.

1492 - album'esque OST, got a great review

Mythodea - imho not an OST, but got a fine review anyway

Alexander - prolly the most orchestral, and thus Filmtrack'ish OST from Vangelis yet, it got oodles o' stars here.

So, as you see, his recent (including 1492 and the 1994 blade runner) work is usually organised as an album without the dull moments you might find on typical OST's (it's dull, but it's there just to be complete) while older work isn't officially released.

So, in a nutshell: you can't blame anyone for the lack of reviews. :P

His Themes album might've a chance tho.. Clem: would you mind listening to it?
