I like both. But Jarre wins for me.

I would choose Ralf and Florian above all, but would you call them synthesists? I guess so..

Well, they DID make alot of music. Even if alot of it was sequenced they still set every step of those sequences and programmed every sound in them.

I have to admit, 666 does make a pretty strong case.

As a kid Jarre was the reason I even looked at a keyboard. Fond memories. I don't have much interest in Vangelis unfortunately.

Come on team Jarre.

Damn this is close! I'm kind of indifferent to both of them but Jarre seems like the kinda guy who would wear sunglasses at night so I want Vangelis to emerge victorious.

Can we have a draw?

Each of them has to sacrifice an arm so they have to join forces :lol: .

Whoa, wot happened? All of a sudden the Jarre supporters woke up? It's a dead heat now...
I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.

Speechless. Rest in peace. I just wanted Vangelis to win because I've always loved the Chariots and Bladerunner soundtracks, other material notwithstanding. I am an unashamed fan of the Chariots themes even if they've become a cliche. It's a cultural touchstone...JMJ is just spacey cheese compared to that. IMHO and all that.

My current vote is strictly keep it close to a tie so that BOTH get to DIE. The material I dislike by both of them outweighs the little I do enjoy almost ten times over. As someone else pointed out, why wasn't Kraftwerk on the list? I would have also loved to have seen how far Klaus Schulze, Brian Eno or John Carpenter could have made it.

If you'd followed the series of threads from the beginning, you'd seen that we suggested our "warriors" to be included in the poll before it started. So I guess noone suggested them.

This turned into a real nail-biter. I'm glad. Although I voted to keep Vangelis around, Jarre deserves some credit. I never gave him much of a chance before but the more I hear the more I like.
