A delicate psychedelic and ethereal song with a crystalline voice. The Battle of the Locusts 13. Without a doubt the best known is 'Rain and Tears', which still can be heard occasionally from radio.

A little lack of coherency, spoken interludes and a few weaker passages are the only negative points that can be found on this unique double-album. Catchy piano grooves, psychedelic Indo-raga sitar and helium induced vocal pitches augmented by flute and sitar trade-offs.
Don't Try To Catch A River 03. This is a brilliant example of 60s psychedelic pop and for anyone interested in that scene should by no means miss out on this one. Just change the Moody Blues type of Mellotron-oriented keyboard arsenal to a Hammond, and it could be an obscure Deep Purple song. To me it is an album worth three stars and no more. It leaves an album of good and sometimes great songs. Demis Roussos' raspy vocals are backed by high vocal harmonies reminiscent of the early Moody Blues.
Hic Et Nunc Here And Now 17. End Of The World 06. Page 1 of 1 This may not be a complete discography for Aphrodite's Child. Don't Try To Catch A River 05. The sleeve shows light wear and the vinyl appears barelyplayed Last copy in stock. I don't think that the album is as brilliant all the way through, as it is in some of it's parts.
These 19 minutes are a sort of mixture of electronics and space rock jam over which are superposed some extracts of the record. Obviously the record is intended to be sat through, that is listened to in one sitting. Again I'd make a reference to the classic Moody Blues for the rich and warm soundscape dominated by keyboards creating orchestral nuances. The editing wasn't necessary after all. Let me love, let me live 15. Yes, this is actually a heavy rock song! Worst part is the bass level was different from song to song, and was particularly lacking in Babylon. The Capture of the Beast 21.
Day Of The Fool 12. End Of The World 06. It is pompous, dramatic, eclectic and furthermore based around a concept of biblical thematics. Definitely my favorite track and the catchiest that even manages to squeeze in some ragtime piano sounds. Your rating: or to assign a rating to this band.
The Grass Is No Green 10. The mere glance at the cover fills me with joy and I stand in awe, somewhat, when listening to it. Disc 2 is bit more experimental and improvisational. It is an impressive album and I think one ought to have taken part in it by listening once or twice but I fear it is not the Classic it is supposed to be. Spring, summer, winter and fall 666, 1972 01.
But 'Rain and Tears' has proved to be an evergreen classic, hence three friendly stars for this pop single. Few artists were able to offer such musical variety at the time and unite opposite genres such as rock, folklore, electronics and jazz. I find myself wander off, both in mind and body.

Some of the multiple ideas spread all over the record are ahead of their time. The song hurries ahead in a very straightforward way without much new details, and for that reason it is quickly worn out. Break End Of The World, 1968 01.
Roussos has a unique vocal style that gives a flair of exoticness as his Greek accent and Mediterranean influences clearly separate the band from the British scene all the while encompassing the best aspects of it. Quando L' Amore Diventa Poesia 10. Such a funny night Bonus: 19. Don't cry to catch a river 03. The album was recorded through the period of 1970 and 1971 - didnt find exactly for what reason it was released only in 1972 - what made the album have a anachronistic sounding.
