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...
