As a biased 20+ year Vangelis fan, 1492 Conquest of Paradise is most assuredly Vangelis' greatest movie score. The tracks "Conquest of Paradise", "Light and Shadow/Deliverance" and "Eternity" rival any of the greatest musical scores in movie history from such great composers as Bernard Herrman, Philip Glass, John Williams and Hans Zimmer. I applaud iTunes for having an almost complete Vangelis collection; however, most noticeably missing is his best album, DIRECT.
1492-has lasted the test of time with me. A must have for any collector of sound tracks.
One word describes this, Fantastic!
This is a definite masterpiece.
