The City is also one of Vangelis' more jazz-oriented albums and is a breeze to sit through. It also wouldn’t be out of place functioning as a film score for a documentary about urbanity and urban dwellers of a cosmopolitan city

Vangelis (born March 29, 1943) is a Greek composer and performer. He gained wide popularity after composing soundtracks to Chariots of Fire (1981) and Blade Runner (1982). Strictly not bootleg recordings as they appeared on a label, but they were released without Vangelis' permission and were later withdrawn from the market. 1973) L'Apocalypse des animaux.

Vangelis' city is cosmopolitan, tastefully blending exotic sounds and disembodied voices, at once futuristic yet reassuringly familiar. Where Direct was remote, The City is almost sensual; swiftly coursing rhythms and bursts of sensation create a tactile quality. As program music, it succeeds at connecting events seamlessly for the first half of the disc.

I love this album. Years later, I still play it often and get the same Yamaha CS-80 Blade Runner bliss.
This is a relaxing melodic album, ideal to listen while reading a book or while having dinner, or even to help fall asleep. "Procession" is my favorite track in this album.
Not a bad album whatsoever, it has the Yamaha CS-80 and definitely follows on from Direct, even some Blade Runner vibes here and there. If you like Direct, you will like this one. Give it a listen from start to finish and it will grow on you, I wouldn't touch this with a barge pole due to me favouring his earlier CS-80 albums, but now I love it!
I think it’s fair to say that some of Vangelis’ most accomplished works were recorded in the 1970s and 1980s. But this 1990 album remains underrated, even by loyal fans of his. Released in between Direct (1988) and his outstanding film score 1492: Conquest of Paradise (1992), The City is a concept album centering on urban life, by turns explosive and meditative, providing nearly 45 minutes worth of excellent electronic music, with seamless overlay of Vangelis' trademark voices and ambient sound recording e.g. footsteps, a motorcycle starting. Not to worry, these overlays do not make up more than 5 minutes of the total runtime. The City is also one of Vangelis' more jazz-oriented albums and is a breeze to sit through. It also wouldn’t be out of place functioning as a film score for a documentary about urbanity and urban dwellers of a cosmopolitan city. Such is Vangelis’ unparalleled skill in painting vivid soundscapes mainly through his synthesizers that you will find The City ending with 'Procession', a 9-minute long piece with a repetitive melody and chorus that grows increasingly intense, with more instruments layered on top of each other, coming full circle to the ambient sounds used in the first track 'Dawn', as if another day awaits, possibly anew, or possibly same old.Highlights:'Nerve Centre' - the album's 'noisiest' piece, a kind of heavy rock-inspired track with Vangelis simulating the electric guitar through synthesizers. It is wonderfully arranged, and ends off with the feeling that you are seeing fireworks of joy.'Good to See You' - perhaps the best track of the album with a slow jazzy rhythm that makes you feel like you are strolling along the sidewalk as night falls. One of Vangelis' most underrated compositions.
Unfortunately even the greats have their 'off days'. This is one of those days for Vangelis. A musical evocation of a 'day in the life' of a 'City' has the makings of a good idea. Istanbul, Athens, Mumbai? Er it's hard to tell, the City is as anonymous as the music, generic and a bit flat. When things go up-tempo the melodies are well within the scope of this man's talent and the production is bland, the tracks segue in an uninteresting fashion and (worst of all) Vangelis never strays far from the presets on his synths. Why do I own this album? For tracks 5, 6 and 8, which despite all my gripes are lovely. 'Twilight' could have made it onto 'El Greco', it's that good.
