4 stars WOW! Vangelis really masters the modern keyboards here! Welcome to the realm of Asiatic music. As the titles reveal, the Chinese influences are omnipresent. Very charming and beautiful, this music will transport you into an Oriental world. There are miscellaneous instruments: piano, violin, delicate percussions, exotic string instruments. There are absolutely NO ordinary tracks! Vangelis succeeds very well here on fitting together traditional acoustic instruments and modern, floating, rhythmic & melodic keyboards.

On side 2, you are invited to participate to the ascension of an Himalaya peak! Absolutely delightful, especially when you reach the "Summit": I LIKE the scattered volume effect on keyboards at the very end!

rating: 4.5 stars
