If I'm not wrong,the score for "The Piano" by Michael Nyman was released in 1993. Regarding all kinds of music(not only soundtracks),that recording was a real masterpiece.
After nearly a decade,this time Vangelis comes with "Mythodea".The original piece was written in 1993 and it was not about Mars.So shaming Vangelis with using the same notes of Gustav Holst's "Mars" is injustice.By the way they do not even sonud alike.
Mythodea is one of the exceptional recordings(again considering all genres)
that deserve a high appreciation.In my opinion it is the last ten years' best.
