I can't tell if this is meant to be sarcasm, but something tells me it's not. It's completely erroneous; Vangelis' music for Chariots of Fire was just used last year during the Olympics, for Christ's sake!


You do realize that that music was played by The London Symphony Orchestra last year right?

Gee I wonder why those Brits didn't whip out some 1981 Yamaha synthesizers to play this. I mean, people LOVE that cheap synthetic sound right?


Wow, congrats on sounding like a complete a**hole, facehugger. Since when did this thread become only about you trashing all 1980's synths?



You have to keep it in perspective, the guy is a troll and an idiot. He's like Yor, determined to make every thread about his own half assed opinions.

Indeed; hence why I added him to my ignore list. Just another self-important fool with an inflated ego.

This is indeed a marvelous track, so glad I picked up the 2-disc edition of this score, as I am finding much to enjoy.

I am really enjoying the 2nd CD in the deluxe box of the MAN OF STEEL soundtrack....it's similar in flow to many "new age" space music albums I love.....I really appreciate the journey it takes me on, and could be a good listening experience to EM fans even without seeing the movie (IMO).

Totally agree
as I said before this MOS release is a masterpiece, a real breakpoint.


A "masterpiece" like Vangelis' Chariot of Fire.

Seriously, who still listens to that score thirty years later? Is it still used for commercials? For trailers? For sports event fanfares? NO. That synthetic fastfood music has not stood the test of time.

Something like John Williams' works (e.g. Raiders of the Lost Ark, of the same year as Chariot of Fire), on the other hand ...


John who?

The Man Of Steel EARTH track was really nice.

Congratulations you're now on my ignore list too. Apparently you lack the tiny bit of intelligence to have to resort to personal attacks.

Yamaha CS 80...."cheap synthetic"........I gotta laugh.

Agreed. I think it was retailing for $6000 back then. Love the sound of that beast. I have the Arturia CS80v plug in version of that synth and its awesome.

Don't get too bent out of shape by posts from people who probably weren't even alive when this score came out (Blade Runner was released a year after this "dated" score).


Gee I never knew $6000 was expensive! I'm sure a garage composer's worst dilemma is to decide whether to get one of these, or to hire an orchestra.

Blade Runner is a great score that has not dated a bit.

Synthesizers for Olympics, on the other hand, is like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle -- it should strickly belong to the 80s.

Why? Any more than double horns belong "strickly" [sic] to the late 19th century?

Arguing down the slipper rope will not get you far, you know.

But since we're going down that road, how about "a gozzi" as a sleeve style should belong to the Renaissance Age? How is that supporting my main point "a fad should belong to its specific era"?

BTW grammar nazi, picking out spelling mistake from a non-native English speaker, is that the best you can do? Maybe you should write something in Chinese to show your command of language?
