Disjointed and laughably bad
on 23 March 2005
I bought this album after hearing Oceanic, Bladerunner, Voices, and the City, all by Vangelis. If you like the deep, moving, atmospheric and emotional pieces that Vangelis is capable of producing then do not get this album. Vangelis work, following the City takes on a much better tone than these earlier productions. Even so, this album might be ok if Jon wasnt butchering the music by squeeking all over the top. People familiar with the vocals in Voices, 'losing sleep in a waking dream' will be dissapointed with the menial, far less exciting 'watching match of the day' lyrcis of this album. The voice doesnt sound eerie and haunting in my opinion it sounds like a bad joke, a tone deaf beegie squeeking all over what might otherwise be an acceptable musical accomplishment.
This music is not deep and atmospheric, it is a massive dissapointment. If you want good vangelis, get Voices.
