From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

2 stars I've heard a lot of Vangelis' discography, and it really can be a real hit or miss affair. The guy loves to experiment and sometimes you get gold and sometimes you get a really horrible monster. This one leans to the monster category.

I was expecting something along the lines of the music that was used as the soundtrack for the public TV show, Cosmos. (Hosted by Ca'al Sgngn - his true alien name, [aka Carl Sagan], from what I've heard.)

There is a lot of drama in the music, and maybe if you're a fan of opera, I'm not, there may be some appeal to you. It is a truly symphonic album, but I find it more regressive than progressive. One of those "I probably wouldn't have bought it if I'd heard it first" kind of albums. So get it if you want some "Music for the NASA Mission 2001 Mars Odyssey", which sounded like it could be really appealing to me, but wasn't. But if you're looking for some really good space prog, you might want to look elsewhere first. One of a few albums in my collection I would have liked to listened to first and probably wouldn't have added.
