Probably the best of Vangelis's Nemo Studio years on the RCA label, this album features two standout tracks (Pulstar and Alpha - the latter was featured in the Cosmos TV series) but Nucleogenesis is a tour de force that showcases Vangelis at the height of his compositional prowess. The title track Albedo 0.39 is hauntingly mysterious and beautiful.

PEOPLE, trust me here. Avoid ALL CD versions of this album and go for a vinyl LP pressing, the CD's have been mastered from degrading tapes whilst the original LP's retain the original sound, also, don't be fooled by the remastered 2013 CD as that was taken from an original CD and not the tapes. The CD versions compared to the LP's have less stereo image, distortion and seem to have some instruments missing from the mix.

A satisfying Production, with relaxing smooth melodic tracks as well as some less interesting ones. another good release by Vangelis.

Can anyone comment on the mastering of this release, does it differ from the original RCA CD?

This album is one the grandfathers of mainstream electronic music (next to Autobahn and Oxygene) and takes it's place at being of one the first and best. Catchy tunes, memorable rhythms and many great songs. This album is one of Vangelis' best and i would recommended it!

Calling all hardcore Vangelis fans!

Was there ever an instrumental of the title track released? I love the spoken word vocals, but it would be amazing to listen to the actual music without it.

It's like the best spacey Library track ever.

Okay, forget all the cheesy New Age imagery that surrounds this multi-talented artist (he plays every instrument on his records) and check out this album. This is Vangelis' jazz-rock fusion album. Tracks like 'Nucleogenesis', 'Main Sequence, and 'Pulstar' actually rock! There are the few obligatory not-so-great tracks but this release seems to surprise listeners who would write Vangelis off along with Kenny G and Ya(wn)ni as a schmaltzy 'adult contemporary' artist. He would earn that title later; however, along with 'Albeedo', his 70s material still stands out as some of the most original music ever recorded.
