5.0 out of 5 stars Atmospheric Greek electronica song-cycle 24 May 2006
Format:Audio CD
Sadly neglected 1979 Vangelis gems sung assertively and movingly by famous actress Irene Papas. Creates and sustains a nicely relaxing atmosphere of tragic foreboding. The recording has aged very well and there's absolutely no filler. Give it a bash, dears - you know you want to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vangelis and Irene - what a combination 23 Feb 2005
Format:Audio CD
This is more of a Vangelis album than Irene Papas really. Two of the tracks are instrumental compositions by him. The rest are Greek songs arranged with synths and Irene Papas' Greek melancholy vocals. It works because it sounds modern and traditional at the same time with a slightly mystical edge. If you like Vangelis' Opera Sauvage and China (both released the same year as this, 1979) then this is for you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Vangelis' Greek side is refreshing. 20 July 1999
By "jodygeol" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This recording by Irene Papas and Vangelis is reminescent of "Heaven and Hell", but with more of a Greek sound. The album is both soothing and energizing, and it is one of Vangelis' more unique performances. Definitely worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple and wonderful! 24 Feb 2005
By Music fan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Magic is the word that could describe this album! The simplicity of the melodies and the singing with the modern Vangelis'arrangements create a unique atmosphere. It is a Greek album with a particular modern color thanks to Vangelis and Irene Papas. Even if it was recorded more than 20 years ago sound so fresh and new! Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Modern Masterpiece 12 May 2007
By Frank Foreal - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is Vangelis' greatest work - it is a very contemporary, well advanced for its time, re working of traditional Greek folk songs from the 19th Century using electronics, operatic motifs and complex arrangements-without negating authenticity. Irene Papas is magnificent interpreter of the emotion, depth of these works. She is a master actor and a brilliant vocalist. All Vangelis' other works pale in comparison to ODES.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful !! 13 Oct 2008
By Raphael - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Odes is a Supreme partnership between a Great Dramatic Actress, Irene Pappas and The Mystical and Cosmic composer, Vangelis..reminds one of another Great partnering of another era,this being ..Bellini's NORMA,with the Legendary Maria Callas and Tulio Serafin, in that they both invoke The Classical and Dramatic and Spiritual elements that is Universal and Eternal, which is contained within each of Us..Odes is a Masterpiece !!!!
