Album Review

Evangelos Papathanassiou (aka Vangelis) is one of the most celebrated electronic musicians ever. He is certainly the most popular and most widely heard. His CDs feature symphony orchestras to augment his electronics. His older discs are classics and they are in the symphonic synthesizer style. L'Apocalypse Des Animaux is one of his earliest albums. It is the soundtrack to the Frederic Rossi film of the same name. The disc is short (35 minutes), as it was originally recorded in the analog domain for release on a vinyl LP. This CD demonstrates that Vangelis has always had the innate ability to paint pictures with his music. The atmospheres are lush and full. Deep listeners will see the music. This CD will appeal to fans of Constance Demby, Yanni, Suzanne Ciani, and Jon Jenkins.
