    From ProgressiveRock :

    Aphrodite’s Child was a Greek singles group that had some success in the UK, but more importantly, spawned two of Greece’s greatest musical exports, singer Demis Roussos and composer Vangelis. By the time of this album, the beat era and any pop legacy was all behind them. What Vangelis proffered here was something far more psychedelic and progressive. Based on the Apocalypse of St. John, 13/18, 666 was recorded in Paris over the prior two years. The double album was all over the map but that doesn’t detract; it was as wholly conceived a concept as any of the time. From great pop hooks ("The Four Horsemen"), heavy rock ("Do It"), to Magma-esque Progressive rock ("Altamont"), the album covered a lot of musical ground while remaining unique, cohesive and quite idiosyncratic of Vangelis’ later solo recordings. "Infinity", a female orgasm trip offered by Irene Papas, was controversial upon the album’s release, yet any of which has certainly worn off with age. The performances were all top notch, in particular, Silver Koulouris’s psychedelic guitar work and Lucas Sideras’ drumming. The album’s mangum opus, the twenty-minute finale "All the Seats Were Occupied" is simply fantastic. Gradually unfolding into a tight psychedelic groove, it reprises the album’s various themes, drifting in and out of consciousness to a tight summation of this classic work. Roussos left for a solo career in Greece after the recording, while Vangelis would eventually move to London to begin a long and distinguished solo career.
