    From ProgressiveRock :
    Phos was in fact the Greek band's fourth album, and represented a significant change in style from earlier releases. Original called Socrates Drank the Conium, the band's heavy psychedelic rock centered on the guitar work of John Spathas. Not that much had changed by their third album, On The Wings, which was their first to be internationally released. Some three years later, though, the original trio of Spathas plus drummer George Tourkogioris and bassist Anthony Trandalides, hooked up with Vangelis in his London studio to record Phos. Vangelis provided significant contribution to the album, as both keyboardist and producer to the Tourkogiorgis/Spathas compositions. The result is a unique album. The opener "Starvation" is a remake from their first album. Spathas' multi-tracked guitars are still primary, but Vangelis' trademark tones provide added color. "Queen of the Universe" and "The Bride" refreshingly hint at Greek folk music. "Killer" is heavier rock, while the complexities of "The Time of Pain" and "Mountains" are reminiscent of Gentle Giant. Only when the tempo slows, as on "A Day In Heaven", does the band miss the mark. Unfortunately this would be the only album from this lineup. Some yeas later Spathas and Tourkogiorgis would reunite for another round of albums. Vangelis would of course continue being Vangelis.
