The best tracks are Hymmne and Reve. Some of the keyboard arrangements (such as in Reve) do sound a bit dated. However, for 1979 it was pretty high tech stuff. Quite a few of the elements and sounds that Vangelis created for Opera Sauvage served as a prelude to the same sonic characteristics he would later utilize for the soundtracks of Bladerunner, Antarctica, and The Bounty for the early'80s. There is something naturally organic, yet technically mechanical to Opera. This is a fantastic production to listen to late at night for having a good night's rest! It is also a great introduction into Vangelis' next musical career phase for recording movie soundtracks ( though, not sure if Opera Sauvage was a European film or not)...
I do believe that he started using synthesizers like no one else before, back in the late 60's. Opera Sauvage is no less enchanting than his other magnificent albums. Vangelis is a man who never advertises his products, we never see him, we know nothing about him or his personal life, but he still manages to touch us deep down with his truly heavenly music. I hope that this genius will stay with us for many years to come, always creating timeless music for us.

This is really a very special music. It's a bit nostalgic, a bit experimental, a bit electronic, a bit acoustic. It's sweet and wild. It's a balance between forces. Yin & Yang. Read morePublished 13 months ago by BPMan
