Verified Purchase. When this album first came out in , I didn't want to have anything to do with it. However, when I first heard the album some five years later, it quickly became my favorite Vangelis album. More of the same goodness and voices. Maybe it was alluring.
It immediately became my favorite cut on the album, even before I heard the remaining four cuts. The instrumentation was not so floating, though. It has some life to it. It blended in very well and came in and out of the piece at various places. It uses different vocalizations to maximum effect. It has too much power behind it and all through it. I could listen to this CD all day long.
My favourite melodies on this album are: Messages, for the very uplifting feeling that it always gives me when I am feeling in a melancholy mood.
The song never fails to bring my spirit up a few octaves. Prelude and Dream in Open Spaces are my second two favourite melodies. Just beautiful melodies.
These melodies will stay with me long after I have finished listening to them and often times, I will play them in the background while I am reading a novel on my Kindle Fire HD. Perfect backdrop for romance novels. I do like all the other melodies on this album as well. But the three above I listen to everyday. One person found this helpful.
I bought 3 different CDs by Vangelis and I am soooo happy with them. Beautiful, beautiful music! Sometimes it's the music, sometimes it's the time in which the music is consumed, either way this was a very impact-full release. It has stayed with me since, and I cannot recommend it enough. So sorry this artist isn't as prolific as he once was. I love his music. An instant stress buster! Transcends you immediately to peace and tranquility! I listen to this repeatedly without getting bored!
I know for a fact that Vangelis recorded more songs with each of the vocalist here. There are two more Paul Young tracks that we may never hear Perhaps someday, a reissue will come out with those extra tracks on it.

Alex Misiewicz Photography By. It's a shame they never worked together again! Cardia1 October 14, Report. Good work overall! Reply Notify me Helpful. Although quite romantic, lush and stifling for a little time, there are a number of great tracks with excellent vocal accompaniments see credits The vocals work well. One track does borrow heavily from an Irene Papas track Menousis but it's all in a winning effort. Reply Notify me 1 Helpful.The CD tracks "Dial Out" and "Intergalactic Radio Station" are NOT on the LP. The LP has CD tracks on side A and CD tracks on side B. Vangelis announced this album as the first in a series of interconnected albums that would explore a wide range of the musical spectrum.
