3 stars Strange noises, weird sounds and abstract impressions. Very disturbing synth experimentations from Vangelis. If you`re not into the ambient scene definitely stay away from this. Even if you are into the ambient scene you might want to stay away from this as well. It even goes beyond these tastes. It doesn`t approach any semblance of structure or composition and it`s as if Vangelis was angry at something and was venting some sort of agressive frustration toward it using his synthesizer as a sounding board. The only thing I can compare it to is perhaps the Ominous music from the Hungarian modern composer Ligeti which was featured in the film 2001: A Space Odyssey and some of the music Vangelis wrote for the film Blade Runner.

I like to listen to it when I`m burning the midnight oil working at my desk late at night and need something uninterruptive or when I`m expecting dinner guests from Alpha Centauri. I give it three stars because vangelis does cojure up some weird moods with this interesting collection of unorganized audio effects.
