Review by Trotsky

2 stars This attempt to condense Vangelis' pioneering synth albums into a palletable single disc was the first bit of his solo music I picked up. As with the similarly celestial and electronic Tangerine Dream, once I consumed the fare, I have felt no subsequent hunger for seconds.

Sure there are some memorable space synth anthems like Pulstar, Aries and Spiral (all pulse rhythms and ambient synths) as well as exciting fusion-inflected experiment Bacchanale and the suitably cosmic So Long Ago, So Clear (with vocals by Yes' Jon Anderson), but there are also dreary lullabies like To The Unknown Man and the New Age forerunner Albedo 0.39 (spacey sounds underpinning a deadpan voice stating scientific facts!). The 10 minute plus excerpt from Beaubourg, which is basically a cacophony of sound effects, is particularly trying.

While Vangelis is a great musician, I'm less than totally enamoured of the sound of him interacting with himself. The lack of rhythmic and instrumental diversity tends to make this music more one-dimensional than it should be. It doesn't really help that while Vangelis originally slaved for hours to create the dense layers of sound that gave his music its character, nowadays any novice can park himself in front of a half decent Korg and replicate music of this ilk with the minimum of effort. I suppose one day I may take the trouble to check out highly rated albums like Heaven And Hell, Earth and Albedo 039. But that's way down my list of priorities at the moment. ... 41% on the MPV scale

2 stars Hmmmm....not sure about this one. I find it really hard having the best of albums for artists like Pink Floyd, Vangelis and Mike Oldfield, especially where their works are more continuous in terms of composition. So invariably the song selection especially back in 1978 where album lengths were limited, is in short restricted to 25 minutes approx per side.' To The Unknown Man' and the Jon Anderson collaboration of ' So Long Ago So Clear' from Heaven and Hell are the definite highlights on this generally poor offering.

4 stars It is difficult to judge if the music of Vangelis is Prog or not. In my opinion Vangelis' music is Prog but only because not Rock in the sense of Rock with drums, guitar, bass... in other vision Vangelis' music is not Classic Music because have too Rock elements. Sure in my personal vision Vange ... (read more)

4 stars This compilation covers only 4 albums that were released between 1975 and 1978 on the RCA lable.Many prog fans understandably regard this as the best period of Vangelis music for the simple reason that the music is more prog sounding.I'm a bit dissapointed that Alpha was ommitted from this com ...
