4 stars All the songs from this EP (with one exception) were taken from their "Page of Life" album (from the first version of that album which was released by Arista Records in 1991). This EP is now considered more as a "rarity" and it is difficult to find it as it is now of print. At the time of release (1991) I didn`t know that Jon and Vangelis have released a new album titled "Page of Life", and it seems that the original version of that album was only released in Europe in 1991. This EP has two versions of "Wisdom Change". One is a single edit (only available in this EP), and the other is the full version of the song. I prefer the full version of this song. I also could hear some differences in the mixing, but maybe I`m wrong. Anyway, the full version is better. The edit lacks a brief keyboard solo (using a "trumpet" sound) and it also has a shorter fnal part, but both versions have a very good vocals arrangement by Jon Anderson. This is a very Pop song in style with some New Age musical arrangements. "Page of Life" is a very good song, more New Age in style, and it is one of the best from the "Page of Life" album. But the "real rarity" in this EP is the song titled "Sing With Your Eyes", which I consider as one of the best songs Jon and Vangelis recorded as a duet, and maybe is my favourite song from them. It is a very good ballad, with very good arrangements and mixing, and a very good "atmospherical" instrumental section played by Vangelis. I don`t know why this song was relegated to this EP as I consider it as the best from the "Page of Life" album sessions. It also wasn`t released in the second version of the "Page of Life" album from in 1998. If someone wants to listen to this song it is available for listenig in youtube: www.youtube.com/watch?v=e0IDCHTtchw.
