An album which is a mixed bag. Most tracks are very short and sounds unlike any other album!. Essential to own if you are a progressive rock fan, but quite hard going if you are not in the mood.

Based on THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN, "666" by APHRODITE'S CHILD is a substantial concept of intellegent, thought provoking Progressive Rock, no stupid devil horns here. 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.

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.

So great and epic is this album that it would be well suited for use in a film soundtrack. Along with Close To The Edge, this is my favourite prog record. Kicks off with The System; a short and ritualistic chant. (Are they saying "we've found the system so f--- the system?) Babylon is a lively rocker that sounds like a live recording, but this is really a studio track with some crowd noise added on to it. For quite some time' I thought the narraton on Loud Loud Loud was by a woman, until I found out that it was actually spoken by a 12 year old son of a Greek diplomat, which explains the unbroken voice. The Four Horsemen is the best song on 666 by a long shot. I found Demis Roussoss' vocals quite haunting; and the guitar solo that follows is one of the best I have ever heard. Would make an ideal piece of music to close a movie blockbuster.. What a classic.
Although 666 is very much in the progressive rock category, other types of music are present too. Battle of the Locusts, and Do It are 2 short guitar freakouts that some of the instruments top players would be proud of. Greek folk prevails on The Wedding of the Lamb, while some other tracks are either chants (E.G 7 bowls), or unclassifiable as music, such as The Awakening Beast and Ofis.
CD 2 opens with 7 Trumpets, a brief spoken piece, before giving way to Altamont. A brilliant atmosphreic tune with a good bassline combined with brass on top. A short narrative then follows and you can really picture the scene as you listen to the words being spoken.
A track known as Infinity; which is written on the song title list as a symbol that cannot be typed on a keyboard, is just the actress Irene Papas having some kind of psychedelic orgasm or going through some form of torture.

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.

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!
