Reviewing a master is a voyage of futility.......one I cannot join in on. Its going to be a very sad day when Vangelis is no longer with us here on Earth. Even the Mountains will weep.

It's a good release for collectors. I don't see the point including two versions of Ask The Mountains. Personally I like the more instrumental extended version. 3/5

I basically heard this release because of my interest in Vangelis and a track I heard Stina do on the Romeo & Juliet soundtrack. What a perfect pair!

The title track is brillant but if your tired of the same old Vangelis sound then don't bother. He again uses his ambient tones and keys much like in the Bladerunner soundtrack, and a lot of other works. I personally like this style though. Over the music you have Stina showing off her angelic vocals with a little help of Echo added. Works well. The extended version is mainly more of Vangelis building up the track for 3 minutes before Stina gets in.

The "B-side" of this single, Slow Piece, I actually like better than the title track. More ambient soundscapes and piano from Vangelis and yes, is a bit slower of a track. These two worked so well together I wish they'd done more.
