As suggested by other reviewers here, this is indeed one of the top prog rock recordings from the golden age of progressive rock. It's hard to imagine something like this being released these days -- fearlessly experimental, theatrical, all compiled by real live musicians. Wow, imagine that. The somewhat dated sound has held up well over the years, too. It still sounds fresh and vibrant, though the recording and production techniques are a bit creaky. A warning to prospective buyers: it appears that there is a version of this disc that has "Aegean Sea" as the first track. Avoid if at all possible; buy only the version with the tracks in the original LP order, commencing with "The System". What was the record company thinking when they messed with this? Shameful. Stick with the original beauty instead. My fond memory of this work: as a teenager, we'd light candles and sit around in darkened rooms listening to this, and inevitably someone would shout, "It's too scary, it's freaking me out, turn it off!" Har har. I sincerely hope that future generations of teens have similarly frightful times with this disc. It's really not satanic, but the kids do need a good scare now and then.

Based on THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN, "666" by APHRODITE'S CHILD is a substantial concept of intellegent, thought provoking Progressive Rock. Somewhat surprisingly firing them on all cylinders is keyboard wiz Vangelis and Euro warbler Demis Roussos. The album itself is of major importance, influencing alot of groups; Pink Floyd's "The Wall" and Genesis' "The Lamb" are evidence of this fact. The music explores every aspect and emotion from the Beautiful and Good to the Demonic and strange, the 20 minute "All The Seats Were Occupied" is one of the greatest Opus' of all-time, which strangely is a kind of Overture at the end of the album. "666" by APHRODITE'S CHILD is a Completely Original work of Mind-Blowing Progressive Rock, once you've listened to this unforgetable album, it will stay with you for the rest of your life.

Okay - if you're a fan of Demis Roussos, latter-day Vangelis or Rain and Tears-era Aphrodite's Child.... TURN BACK NOW!
In some places, this album has some REALLY fine music and some very engaging melodies. However, some of the tracks (like "Infinity") are really weird, almost demonic, soil-your-pants style music! Spoken chants, insane ramblings - the works! If you like music that dares to tread on uncharted territory - you can do far worse than buying this CD!
Highlights - "Babylon", "The Four Horsemen", "Aegian Sea", "Infinity" and the 20-min "All The Seats Were Occupied".
Not recommended for people with weak hearts, strong religious beliefs or a taste for Celine Dion!

An album of particulary outstanding lead guitar and drums. A cornocopia of musical talent fused with haunting vocal melodies and extraordinary biblical symbolism, '666' is perhaps the strangest, wierdest but most rewarding musical experience. Enjoy the brash commercialism of 'Babylon' but savour the exquisitly perfect guitar playing and spoken overdub on 'Aegean Sea'. Outstanding is 'The Four Horsemen',with its staggeringly ethereal vocal, and aggressive electric guitar solo. I challenge you not to be impressed. A perfect track to blast the Hi Fi speakers apart! A wonderfully eclectic album, with tracks to suit most tastes. Collectively, it's a difficult album to grasp, but its concept trancends the variety of obscure musical styles and produces a very rare collection of unforgettable relevance.

I first heard a crackly cassette with a copy of this album 13 years ago, and have wanted to listen to it again ever since, on buying it, I have not been disappointed. Think pink floyds the wall and you will not be far off, it hard to hold anything to David Gilmour and Roger Walters, but, this is very much in the same vain and 10 years its junior.
As a predecessor to prog rock, this is album is almost an rock opera, with some catch tunes. As the title suggests, there are some disturbing religious overtones, which on consideration do add to the atmosphere of the piece, but expect some strange looks if you play it out loud.
The album kicks of with the system a simple chant of 'we've found the system, to f* the system' before launching into the catchy rock piece Babylon, which is very upbeat raw guitar, which shows the musicians Greek roots. The album then reaches Loud, Loud, Loud, which is where the albums religious overtones kick in, followed by the excellent Four horsemen which is the song (along with the out of place ballad finally break) that made me recall and buy the album. It starts with a narration that leads into some natty guitar work.
We then go Greek again with the 'plunk plunk' of the lamb which would not be out of place in a greek restaurant, all be it a lively one. The Aegian sea is a fantastic piece of guitar music, which does draw comparisons to axe greats such as Gilmour in style, before we are back to pseudo-religious chanting again with seven bowls.
The album carries on with some great tunes, such as the rather funky novelty track the beast, guitar thrashings in do it and the battle of the locusts, some silly breaks like ofis, a too happy pop rock hic and nunc (here and now) and more of the same chanting the capture of the beast.
