3 stars This album is among the first ones by Vangelis. Do not expect a "1492" or "Chariots of fire" album. Mostly it consists in acoustic, exotic and rhythmic guitar through bass, primitive percussions and strange electric piano notes. The quite addictive "Stuffed aubergine" also has an excellent floating & mysterious keyboards arrangement plus an interesting electric piano sounding a bit like a guitar. There were some musicians involved: Michel Ripoche, Brian Ogder, Mick Waler and Silver Koulouris. The fast and progressive "Stuffed tomato" should slightly remind you the Frank Zappa's "Ocean is the ultimate solution" track!

Rating: 3.5 stars
