Greece, 1972, progressive rock / psychedelic rock

Aphrodite’s Child666

One of those albums that gives me chills, especially the apocalyptic spoken word parts. The visionary nature of this psych rock is first rate goodies. This album is so disjointed I’d not really call it a concept album but rather an album with a lot of different things going on built around a concept. I love the variety of musical influences and explorations on display here. Even the baum-chicky-baum corniness of “The Beast” somehow, weirdly, fits right in. Not at all the way I’d envision a musical presentation of the Revelation according to St. John. The track entitled “∞” is where it’s at for me, though, the highlight of the album. What can I say? I like orgasms, especially religious orgasms.
