Review by Matti
COLLABORATOR Neo-Prog Team
4 stars Even though this is more commercial than most Vangelis albums, I liked this right from the first listen in '95 and still do. There are three songs with lyrics (two of them so ethereal that the voices of Stina N. and Caroline L. are more like instruments; Paul Young is the one from Mike + the Mechanics) and in the first two tracks appears a male choir. And some additional voices here and there in the background. Yes, it's very romantic, tender and melodic album, but extremely enjoyable. Maybe the word commercial only raises your prejudices, so let's just say it's easy to enjoy (whether a fan of Vangelis or not). And nothing wrong with that as long as the music is good enough not to get worn-out with few listenings. A safe choice in order to get laid, too! Its follower Oceanic is more cheerful, sunny album with quite similar overall style to this one. There COULD be more of the power of the opening track, I mean perhaps a bit too soft and edgeless work, but I personally enjoy it for 4 stars anyway. Less favourable reviews are likely to follow...

3 stars I hate to be predictable but here is one of those less favourable reviews! Vangelis can churn this sort of stuff out in his sleep.Starts strongly and has all the trademark Vangelis touches..and therin lies the problem.It's is all too familiar even with the additions of some nice vocals.Admittedly there is nothing here to turn you off but then neither is there anything to get excited about.OK middling Vangelis album.

2 stars Aw, in my opinion this album is really the most poorest of this musician's 90's records which I have yet heard. These songs have been crafted in a very commercial way, but which yet troubles me even more is the too sweet and sissy approach of melodies and themes in the music, making up a listening experience which is very easy (and obligatory) to be forgotten. Only thing what's interesting in this album, is the presence of many singers, a phenomena referred in the album title. If you like modern airy-fairy angelic synthesizer music or you are a die-hard fan of VANGELIS, you may want to check this record out, I personally sold this album away after giving it some dissapointed listenings.

Review by Chris S
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars This has a truly distinct sound and cannot be dismissed as mere Vangelis " New Age Filler" It builds on thematic structures most often punctuated by Voice hence the conceptual topic.Voice can distinguish between retoric and failure and Vangelis knows this building audio sculptures from the " siren" like calls of his voicelike angels to beautiful climaxes as the voices remind us of repetition ebbing in and out, back and forth. Nostalgic reminders of subliminal wonders. Vangelis is seducing with Voices and succeeds very well in his missive. The opener is almost majestic in its choral stamp of prescence, demanding an audience but supportive in nature, nurturing as ever.The vocal tracks always come off best and " ask the mountains' and " come to me" endorse the point of communication and security, almost protective by nature." Losing Sleep" is also equally as beautiful and I can't help wondering why this album has not conjured up more opinions from fellow progressive enthusiasts. A rare treat and thoroughly solid. Three and a half stars.

Review by octopus-4
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR RIO/Avant/Zeuhl Team
4 stars Reprising ideas from "Conquest of Paradise" (1492) and "Chariots Of Fire", this album's title track is paying a tribute to both. This is the "final" sound of Vangelis. After the jazzy period immediately following the end of Aphrodite's Child, the clearly progressive electronic period of the late 70s and after being survived to the 80s, Vangelis quits with the experimentalisms. That's why now his ethereal music, often based on major chords, is perceived as newage. The classical influences in the orchestral arrangements and the lyrical choirs can look pretentious, but they are the consequence of years spent experimenting sounds and sequencers.

After the pompous beginning "Echoes" opens much relaxed. The main theme is reprised but it's a complete different interpretation. The same melody of the first track is now spacey or "liquid". It's played by a subtle keyboard, the choir sings low and something totally different. Just a bit less melodic and it could been exchanged for a Tangerine Dream's work. Effectively also they moved to realm closer to the newage in the 90s. This track too reminds to the two albums mentioned before, but from a different angle.

"Come To Me" is the first real highlight. The "Flute and Harp" create a mix of Celtic and Far Eastern mood. "China" and "Ireland" plus the amazing voice of Caroline Lavelle. In this song she's between Annie Haslam and Maire Brennan. It was since So Long Ago So Clear that a song like this was missing from Vangelis' solo discography. A 5-stars song.

"P.S." is a short filler which reprises the main theme after a short excursion into the medieval mood of early Clannad. Then it comes another great track: "Ask The Mountains" with the dreaming voice of Stina Nordenstam is a travel into ice and cold, and really better than Antarctica. I had similar sensations from Kate Havnevik (give her "Melankton" a try). It's a great song.

Calling "Prelude" the sixth track is quite strange. It starts with a minor chord and a singer that reminds to what Demis did on Blade Runner, only with a lower pitch. Then the piano plays a melody with echoes of Greece. Who considers Vangelis a newage artist could mention this track as example. Listening to it I can imagine Greek islands in the Mediterranean sea.

"Losing Sleep" comes from the 80s. It's probably the voice of Paul Young or the fretless (electronic) bass. There are self-references to the title track but played here and there behind a minor chords melody. It makes me think to "This is Not America" (Metheny/Bowie), a 80s hit, but the tempo is slower and some passages are too typical of Vangelis.

"Messages" opens ethnic. Seashore, birds and percussions. The melody is similar to the main theme of Antarctica but the total effect is similar to Mike Oldfield's "Song Of Distant Earth". Aborigens on an outer planet. Very melodic and spacey at the same time. It goes in crescendo until the final fade-out and the return of the seashore.

"Dream In An Open Place" gives what the title promises. Put your headphones on and let your mind travel in the space-time.

A great album. I don't like the title track and it's follow-up too much, but they are not really bad. Some excellent songs and the peaceful mood that permeates the whole album make it one of the best releases of this period.

If you need relax and appreciate melodic music this is for you, otherwise stay away. This would mean 3 stars as it not for "any" collection, but it's good music and also metal fans need relax sometimes, so I give it 4.

5 stars The second original release of the decade, and the third winner in a row (the other two being 1492 and Blade Runner). I have dubbed the opening and title piece 'Chariots of Fire, Part Two.' It's not the same music, but it conveys the same tone of power and overcoming obstacles. It is a power ... (read more)
