4 stars One of my favorite Vangelis albums. Side One of the original LP sounds somewhat like his later solo work (this is one of his first post-Aphrodite's Child releases), with some gently- flowing electric piano, and even some laid-back trumpet(!). Side Two consists of two long drone pieces which pre-date the whole "New Age" drone genre (think Brian Eno, Steve Roach and a host of other "Music From the Hearts of Space" artists) by more than ten years. These two pieces simply blow me away. I can't think of anyone before him who did anything like this, so I'd have to give him the award for starting the genre. Prog fans may be put off by the static nature of drone music, but I have a large collection of the stuff. I guess I appreciate the sounds themselves as much as the notes being played. Great music to "zone out".
