2 stars Another mainly pop oriented effort by Aphrodite's child. Roussos voice and Vangelis keyboards are the main selling points.

The first and title track is a fine ballad with Moog and organ chords, solemn and a bit reminding of "A whiter shade of pale". Vocal is in the foreground of this song.

"Annabella" is another ballad with gentle instrumentation with flute, water flow, but also mighty organ.

"Let me love, let me live" is a hippie repetitive song with good organ improvisation in the background. "Funky Mary" has a Hendrix chaotic vibe to it although without an ingenious guitar. The vocal does not come from Roussos at all. "Good time so fine" has two vocal types by Roussos: rough for the initial phase and the shiny vocal for the chorus part. This is a nice pop song.

"Such a funny night" has a very playful melody, bouzouki and bass. The vocal is almost female in the beginning and descending all the time - an unusual approach.

One of my favourite tracks.

A good pop-oriented album but not much for a progressive mind.
