IMHO the worst in Aphrodite's Child short discography.

So is the question "is 666 the greatest prog concept album ever"? If so, I'd probably say no, but if it's just "is 666 really good" I'd say yes.

It is quite nice. There are a few moments where it drags but when its on its top notch. I'd give it a 4 or 4.5.

Cons yes, pros no in terms of me believing that it is the greatest Prog concept album. If there truly is such a beast as the bona fide greatest Prog concept album, then I don't know what it is.

Me, too.  666 was based on the bible.  The Lamb was based on having a really weird dream.

Oddly enough I did Wayne's War Of The Worlds.  Had to skip a couple of tracks.  Care to guess which?

I had heard of the 666 album when I first got a used copy, I had been a fan of V's latter 70's stuff.  I like that stuff better.

A great album, but not the greatest.  Accentuating the positive, I voted yea.

Not the best, and it is uneven IMO with some great moments and some not-so-great moments. Break is woefully out of place, tacked on the end as it is.

How does that fit in with The Book of Revelations concept then Tongue
 
It's a pretty Pop song that does not fit with the lyric, music or the concept of the album.

Should have been called 911 because they could have used some outside help. I do like it but for me the mood is completely wrong. PLJ BAND from Greece also has that apocalyptic mood down perfectly on their "Armageddon" album. Just my opinion.
