5 stars Well, I suppose many people will find it hard to listen and I don't blame them for that. It's not a classic prog sound almost at all. The experimentations are too many and sometimes very weird, even for prog music. Then why would I give it 5 stars?

The thing we should all should focus, I think, on is the concept of this double album. It is about the Apocalypse, the Seven Seals and the arrival of the Beast... and the musical approach to this suject is at least brilliant! I could never imagine a Revelation more revolutionary than this! Vangelis is doing an excellent job here surely among the finest of his whole career. I like much all this sound effects that create this sometimes very chilly atmosphere to the concept, which sometimes you are thinking it must be really happening now.

What a pity AC broke after this album, I was sure many amazig works could have followed.
