Robert Fox – The Fire and the Rose “Remaster”

If you are a fan of Vangelis and have yet to hear the instrumental music of Robert Fox, then you are in for a treat! When “The Fire & the Rose” was originally released back in 1991, many reviewers actually dared to say that Robert Fox was surpassing the works of Vangelis himself. Subsequent releases have shown just what a genius Robert Fox really is, but revisiting this extraordinary album confirms that not only is ”The Fire & the Rose” one of the all time best Robert Fox albums, but it is one of the best symphonic electronic music albums ever.

The connection to T.S. Eliot’s “The Four Quartets” has ensured added interest and with perennial sales, now, 20 years on and “The Fire and the Rose” has undergone a superb digital remaster by David Wright with fresh new artwork presenting the music in a much richer and warmer soundscape than the original. Musically though it remains one of the most heartfelt musical statements you’ll ever hear and fully deserving of the accolade “A classic”. If the original is on your CD shelf, then you’ll want to investigate this remaster. If it isn’t, then it should be!
