His map represents the area of weed as shaped like an hourglass, with the broader space toward the west. It holds trees and plants from the Mississippi and Amazon. Thomson 3 does not define the limits of the sargasso sea, but places the northern border near the Azores.
He seems to think that it extends to south from the Bermudas. The floating islands of gulf weed are usually from a couple of feet to two or three yards in diam- eter, but he saw on one or two occasions fields several acres in. They consist of a single layer of feathery bunches of Sargassum oacciferum, not mat- ted but floating nearly free of each other, only enough entangled for the mass to keep to- gether.
The matter is easy, because the steamship route between Barbadoes and the Azores crosses the area diagonally and passes very near the center. On the twenty-seventh parallel the line is very near the center of the usually accepted area as de- fined by Carpenter. Returning, the steamer passed by daylight much of the area passed by night on the outward passage. On the outward passage, the first seaweed was seen just north from the twenty-first par- allel, but only a few isolated bunches, 6 to 12 inches in diameter.
As the twenty-third par- allel was approached, weed became more abundant and the quantity increased until nightfall, when the twenty-fifth was crossed.

I am VERY interested in the historical theme of this movie, although I don't share the original Spanish views of the new continent. As such, I have an emotional feeling about the soundtrack as well. Of course, this is not a masterpiece but a good piece of music.
I would suggest you to watch the movie while listening to the music if you can. One of the highlights is the Bolero type track: "Eternity": it develops a phenomenal and powerful choir aspect as well as a fantastic and bombastic passage.
It might be considered as pompous but my perception is just that it is one of the best pieces out there. The same sort of hypnotic vision can be experienced during "Hispanola". If you would like to enter into Vangelis music, this album is a good opportunity. For a more in-depth description, you can grab any of my previous reviews of the man. The long and maritime closing track which is naming the three boats that were leading Columbus on the new continent and which will end up into the massacre of a whole civilization.
I will never endorse this "Spanish grandeur". Four stars. This is a good Vangelis album for sure. It's difficult to write about a soundtrack without mentioning the material that it was purposely written for.
Did you notice the two dates? No, it's by no means an accident. This coincidence actually holds the key to why this movie wasn't as great as it was intended to be. It's simply a rushed production that took liberties with its source material.
In result it became an overblown snooze-fest of a movie that has been bashed by critics and public alike, placing Scott's career into a ditch for the next eight years. Fortunately, there isn't a logical regression between movies and soundtracks. Instead, it works generally in favor of the soundtracks. Allow me to explain If a movie is good, the soundtrack is generally a hit as well no matter of its quality, mainly because bad soundtracks to good movies still remind its listeners of the good movie that it was made for.
A bad movie, on the other hand, doesn't automatically result in a bad soundtrack and - Conquest Of Paradise is a perfect example of just that. Not only can this soundtrack be enjoyed without the listener ever seeing the movie, but I would actually consider it to be an obligatory requirement! I've had this soundtrack for almost a year now and I still love playing it! During that time it has become one of my favourites and is almost as good as Blade Runner.
However, unlike that soundtrack, I've not seen the film to which it belongs. The main reason I bought it is because it shares the same composer as that sci-fi classic; Vangelis. But why has he made so few, as he seems equally at home creating the warm choral and orchestral sounds of the 15th century as he was in the cold synthesised sounds of the imagined 21st? Of course, in creating his soundtrack for , he still employs his trusted synthesisers.
Perhaps Vangelis is choosy about the projects to which he agrees to work on. The best thing about this soundtrack is its lack of repetition, bar the re-occurence of the 'Conquest Of Paradise' theme in 'Twenty Eighth Parallel', though in a completely different arrangement on piano. Here is the full track list:- 1. Opening 2. Conquest of Paradise 3.

I'm a big follower of Vangelis and have many of his albums, I love his collaborations with Jon Anderson and his film scores are legendary.
I haven't seen the film but I know the gist of the film and I can imagine how this music integrates with the various scenes. Vangelis is a master at bringing the best out of a film with his music and having listened to this album I'm moved to watch the film that he composed it for.
The mix of the recording is, as usual for Vangelis' works of this size from the last two decades, extremely wet. During the voyage from Barbadoes to the Azores, the writer had opportunity to gain important information from two officers who had crossed the sargasso sea many times.
