Vangelis is one of the most celebrated electronic musicians ever. He is certainly the most popular and most widely heard. His albums feature symphony orchestras to augment his electronics. His older discs are classics 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 LP is short (35 minutes), as it was originally recorded in the analog domain. Vangelis has always had the innate ability to paint pictures with his music. The atmospheres are lush and full, and deep listeners will see the music. This will appeal to fans of Constance Demby, Yanni, Suzanne Ciani, and Jon Jenkins.
