5 stars A very exciting album, Vangelis' 1977 release, Spiral is a great accomplishment in the realm of electronic progressive music. It shows the artist very much finding the sound world he would be living in for quite some time, and also features some of his most virtuostic keyboard work. The synth sounds are very much his own, and the album is punctuated by great compositions like the title track, the very energetic and quirky "Dervish D", the supremely melodic "Ballad", the named after it's compound time signature "3 + 3" (9/8 over 3/4, I believe), and one of his most well known and accomplished melodic emotional builders, "To the Unknown Man." Strongly recommended, especially to progressive electronic listeners.
