3 stars Fais que ton reve soit plus long que la nuit ("Have your dream last longer than the night") is one of the rarest and most curious albums of Vangelis. It pays tribute to the 1968 Paris student riots against the deGaulle establishment. Vangelis and his Aphrodite's Child fellows Demis Roussos and Lukas Sideras stayed there at the time recording their first album. In 1972 Vangelis captured the atmosphere and passion of these student uprisings and his personal experiences. The album offers an effective collage of folk based chansons, protest songs students sang on the barricades, heated discussions, street noise and the typical Vangelis sound effects from the early 70s best known from L'Apocalypse des Animaux, Earth or Ignacio. The album provokes a peculiar melancholy mood. A vinyl copy of Fais que ... is very hard to find. On CD there's only a bootleg existing on which you can find Fais que ... titled as Poem Symphonique together with the 1969 solo album Sex Power. It is not reaching up to Vangelis' masterpieces, but due to the brilliant realisation and the historical audio document the album is more than a collectors/fans only.
