Album Remarks & Appraisals:
The iconic composer of 'Chariots of Fire' and 'Blade Runner' and pioneer of electronic music, Vangelis returns with a brand new album, Rosetta, devoted to music inspired by his long-held passion for space. Vangelis was inspired by the Rosetta Mission, an extraordinary and ground-breaking project by the European Space Agency [ESA] to land a probe on a comet for the first time in history, and he has composed this suite of inter-connected music especially for ESA.
