- Sex Power by Vangelis

Here’s an intriguing reissue, well timed to coincide with the deluxe new ‘Blade Runner’ pressing is a very limited repress of Vangelis’s debut ‘Sex Power’, originally released in such limited quantities that originals fetch a fortune on the collectors’ market. Anyway, on this one the Greek soft synth legend offers a selection of therapeutic numbers ranging from his trademark soothing synth swells and gently fingerpicked guitars to quite a bit of percussive-led bubbling relaxo loveliness which lands somewhere between Popol Vuh and Moondog.
There’s certainly shades of his ‘Chariots of Fire’ soundtrack in the more keyboard-led numbers but thankfully I’m not finding this as cloying (probably partly because it lacks the overexposure some of the pieces on that one have experienced over the years). In fact it’s a delight throughout, highly recommended!
