Review by Matti
3 stars Besides the hit single 'Rain and Tears', also other songs of the debut album End of the World were released on singles. This is the title track, and it's among the more interesting Aphrodite's Child songs of the pre-666 era. Again I'd make a reference to the classic Moody Blues for the rich and warm soundscape dominated by keyboards creating orchestral nuances. The song is nocturnally atmospheric and has a lot of passion & drama, especially for the emotional vocals of Demis Roussos. Early Barclay James Harvest had songs with a similar feel.

'You Always Stand in My Way' sees the Greek trio rocking hard. Yes, this is actually a heavy rock song! Just change the Moody Blues type of Mellotron-oriented keyboard arsenal to a Hammond, and it could be an obscure Deep Purple song. A curiosity more than a recommendable or representative Aphrodite's Child number.
