Prog Reviewer
4 stars 「If I joined Yes, it is likely to have become famous very much. More people will listen to my music if Yes secedes afterwards and it performs alone. However, I am not interested in the activity based on the established career. 」

I will be able to ask his music for the appearance of the opposite posture indeed in this word on which it made remarks when he refuses the request of the joining to Yes. The pursuit of the music at which he aims appears originally in own music character and it appears in the work by opposite. The spirit of man who might never compromise gives the listener his creativity by announcing always a lot of excellent works.

This album is a work at the second work after it transfers the register to RCA. Some differences can be discovered in the intention of the work with the former work and the point of the composition in this album though it basically undertakes the extension from "Heaven And Hell" of the former work.

First of all, it is a point in the concept album with the theme with a very grand composition of this album that has finished. And, the point that Vangelis is devoted to the multi musician when this album is produced. He was playing the percussion instrument in "Aphrodite's Child" to which it was already on the register before. This album appears remarkably splendidly in music on which he worked based on such a career. The point to create an original repeatedly a Music character will be splendidly noteworthy ..his enough grasp of the characteristic of a lot of machine parts used.. ..the melody with the keyboard that was able to take harmony.. in addition to subjacent rhythm and idea.

It has the meaning of the reflection power of the planet and non-illuminant with "Albedo 0.39". If the flow from "Earth" that he announced in 1973 is considered, astronomy included in thought and this album of him who flowed to reach this album at last and an astronomical, physical element might be splendidly expressed. The creation that he spent on this album can feel the power still enough by compose of the tune including space and the mystery being splendidly expressed through the whole.
