HIGHLIGHT ** IN DE KIJKER
APHRODITE’S CHILD: END OF THE WORLD
“ (…) Let me explain: much of the stuff that the album delves into, such as the prominent use of keyboards (The Moody Blues and Procol Harum did the shit out of that), the exploration of Middle Eastern styles as seen in songs like “The Grass Is No Green” or “The Shepherd And The Moon” (The Beatles), and sappy ballads (maybe fucking everyone in the UK at that time), has been done before, but the defining factor that makes all those elements fresh is the group’s Greek origins. I wouldn’t be able to tell you how it changes anything aside from the vocals (as a side note, Demis Roussos sings a very good English) and perhaps the overall sound, but I’m pretty sure many of the more emotional numbers wouldn’t have worked at all if they were done by Brits.(…) .
Another thing I love about the album is how chaotic it sounds. Many of the songs are packed sonically, and even when there isn’t that much going on, it always seems like they’re playing in the middle of a huge mob, which, in a way, reflects well upon the situation they were in, with the protests in France and all that. That chaotic production also immediately makes itself known on the opening title track: “End Of The World” is one of the most moving psychedelic ballads of the 60’s, with Roussos’ vocals being carried over by the reverberating production, and the song climaxing in two huge emotional explosions only foreshadowed by a huge vocal “EYYIAEYYYYYYEEEEEEEEEEE” before you’re thrown into a symbolic “end of the world”. It gets me every time”
