The third and last album by the collaboration of Jon Anderson and Vangelis. There is one album after this, but it was made years later, and mostly by Jon Anderson, because Vangelis had other things on his mind. Attempts for another album were undertaken by Jon Anderson, but were not even answered.

When Rick Wakeman wanted to leave the progressive rock band Yes in 1974, Vangelis was briefly considered for his position. It was not happening, but it did lead to a side project with the singer and leader of Yes, Jon Anderson.

Judging from the chart positions, this was the least appreciated album. it was the first I heard though, and I really liked it from the start. I remember I was singing the songs while I was on holiday with my parents in France. The locals must have looked strange when they saw me walking there, singing weird songs that even now I don’t understand.
