One of my latest musical obsessions has been Vangelis’ Alpha.
I like instrumental electronic music and have liked a lot of his past works. Apart from being well-written and catchy, this has one of my favorite musical trends-the slow start that gradually grows more and more lush. Alpha concludes with a massive triumphant blast of synths.
The cosmic theme of its original album fits perfectly with what feels like a journey through an increasingly beautiful landscape until the full wonders of the universe suddenly come into view.
