Review by Tarcisio Moura
2 stars This compilation was given to me as a gift from a friend who recently came back from a long travel through europe. It has no real surprises. It includes the five hit singles recorded by Demis Roussos former band Aphrodite´s Child and seven of his own solo career. As expected it includes no tracks from AC´s revolutionary (and mostly unlistenable) 666 album. While I must point out that I like those songs very much, specially Roussos unique voice, I found the CD to be quite weak, since it has only the obvious hits and nothing new. It gives no perspective of how important Aphrodite´s Child was as band and has not enough songs to do justice to Roussos as a solo performer (where is Velvet Mornings? just to mention one).

If you happen to find only this album on the store and you just want to hear AC´s pop hits and some of Roussos most famous stuff then this CD may suit you. Otherwise there are better compilations of both AC and Roussous.

Rating: two stars, because of the fine tunes included.

4 stars Interesting compilation. And the fact that "The Art Of Démis Roussos And Aphrodite's Chid" is an Italian compilation is normal, due to Italian success of both Aphrodite's Child and Démis Roussos. I do not have problem to judge this compilation: Great music, for me. But Prog... Hmmm... Prog ... (read more)
