2 stars Well, this is really amusing.... my fellow reviewer gives "Invisible Connections" one star (my rating is four stars), and he gives this album five stars, calling it Vangelis' greatest. I'm really not able to go into detail explaining why I don't like this album, because I sold it years ago. I listened to it several times, and kept it for years after it was released, thinking that at some point I would finally appreciate it. It always seemed "uncomposed", like Vangelis thought that just trotting out one loud flourish after another would satisfy his eager fans (he was prolific in those days, and many critics accused him of releasing quickie throwaway albums in between good ones). By this time, I was getting tired of his synth sounds, too. And there just weren't any original-sounding melodies. This was the beginning of the end for me. After the dreadful "The City" and the overly-familiar themes of "1492", I became wary and listened to every new album in the record store. And I haven't bought any of them.
