4 stars It sounds as if Vangelis is not quite popular on PA. Maybe that to have been placed in the prog related section has something to do with this; but I admit that the artist is quite difficult to catalogue.

Anyway, this second soundtrack to illustrate the animal life features lots of African percussion work (most of the time on the light side, this is not "Burundi Black"), some beautiful flute passages, and some melodic and passionate musical moments.

I guess that it is wise to listen to the music while viewing the documentary, but I did not. If you like ambient music and relaxing atmospheres or recurring themes this is quite an album for you.

There are quite a few moving parts; all of them being rather peaceful and impregnated with pure beauty. At times, it is not far from TD (and this is a compliment). Atmospheric mood, aerial and stripped down music: it should please the fans of electronic prog (at least for the last twenty minutes or so). It is my case and I rate this album with four stars. What a pity that the start of this album sounds a bit too much tribal to my ears.
