4 stars As for the music that Vangelis at this time had created, the idea at which he had to aim exactly might have been opened. Of course, it is said that there was a fact that actually rehearses with them man who has received the request from Yes. However, he might have understood the situation, directionality, and all the parts in music.

All elements as his music character are blocked enough in this album of man who debuted from RCA. Making good use of of composition and technology of idea and tune perfectly polished. These parts are important when talking about the content of this album.

Fact to which recording is processed operating all almost musical instruments. And, when the album is created, the flow that appoints English Chamber Choir might be related as a certain point. Or, the song of Jon Anderson is one of the very important parts in the point to compose the album.

Melody and rhythm that reaches the peak from part of grand chorus in "Heaven And Hell Part 1" at once with which tension overflows. It is likely to draw it in to music to which he created the listener exactly. High development of artistry that transcended frame of music. Coming in succession of the hymn and musical instruments presents development to which the forecast doesn't adhere. The composition of the tune processed almost perfectly will call impression.

Song of grand Jon Anderson in "So Long Ago,So Clear". And, the arrangement of a perfect tune of Vangelis might be along the flow of the concept of this album. It is possible to listen to the keyboard and the synthesizer that plays various sounds still freshly.

The processing of the organ of "Heaven And Hell Part 2" and the arrangement of the rhythm might be also splendid. As for an electronic part, elements of musical instruments that the aspect is waited for and he operates are completely reflected. Whether the music that he Vangelis had to understand everything very and to do was sent enough is understood. The chorus part also has already created one space. He splendidly completed a grand theme as a work.

The music that Vangelis at this time had created gradually revolutionized the music character at the same time as becoming one art and always announcing a high-quality work. It might be a field where only he can exactly do his various works. And, Vangelis at this time might have reached a climax. It is a work always popular among the listener.
