Almost any song in the album can be picked to go down the caves of one's soul, but particularly touching are the atmospheric 10-minute epic, "Creation du Monde" (Creation of the World), the liquid "La Mer Recommence" (The sea begins once again) and the three most touching tracks of the album: "La Mort du Loup" (The death of the wolf), "Le singe bleu" (The blue monkey) and one of Vangelis' most eternal works, "La Petite Fille de la Mer" (The little girl from the sea.)
A stream of simplicity, sincerity, sadness, intense melancoly, bitter loneliness, a cried out heart calling for tenderness and understanding, there's also a true and deep love for nature and simple things that go in this music..
If you think life is a collection of emotions and perceptions, then you can't die without having heard this piece of both despair and hope.. Do you like the sea ? Do you know what it is to breath the wind in the rocks, on the border of the ocean ?
If you use to cry on music, I guess you're gonna die on 'La petite fille de la mer'.. Like Vangelis did..... A bit of his life went in that album.. Nobody sensitive could ever be the same after..
All the most beautiful feelings a human being can ever have in his life are expressed in there..
Some albums just can't be criticized.. Even how consciencious you want to be.. When that occurs, then all you can do is to stay humble in front of such a beautiful masterpiece, and admire the work..

That's a very big claim, seeing as most critics and fans feel duty-bound to link Vangelis's peak with the later albums like 'Albedo 0.39', 'Spiral', 'China' or 'Bladerunner'. No sooner has the CD started than the fast, short title track rushes in on a flurry of percussion. The only up-tempo number of the album, this song serves to prepare your senses for the rest of the tracks by putting you in an aware mode. 'La Petite Fille de la Mer' is truly haunting in structure and delivery. Its melody could easily have been borrowed from a Turn of the Century (1900's) music box or pocketwatch. As mechanical in form as that may make it, to hear it again is as rewarding as to hear it for the first time. 'Le Singe Bleu' is a long, wind piece that catapults the listener into deep space at one moment and a darker part of the enchanted coastal forest at twilight the next. 'La Mort du Loup': poignant keyboard piece that sounds like the tide of deathly dark water lapping against the beach at dawn. 'L'Ours Musicien': the listener is now lying on the beach by the forest, gazing up at the stars, hearing the sound of the lumbering Ursa constellation as it trys to move in the Heavens. 'Creation Du Monde' - a very long, synth track which has the listener contemplate how little has changed about his surroundings since their formation. This is truly space music in that it can transport the mind to a swirling, lofty, other realm. This long, contemplative piece leads off into eternity. From that void, 'La Mer Recommence' comes back to the listener who, now watching the tide at late dawn, sees the pattern of life in the rhythm.Read more ›

This is one of Vangelis' earlier soundtracks, and it's pretty diverse. There is quite an eclectic mix of moods here, from kind of spacey to poignantly emotional. Read morePublished on May 15, 2013 by Stan
