It sounds as if Vangelis may be playing over a continous sequence while he changes the sound that is played. The style is similar to his album Masks. There are two extra cuts on the CD that were not on the original album version of this recording. Dial Out isn’t very memorable, but fits on the album. Intergalactic Radio Station is annoying, and seems out of place.
The CD release of Direct includes bonus material - which fits the flow of this intense and dramatic offering - not included on the cassette or vinyl releases. Like most Vangelis, this defies categorization. It has strong elements of rock & roll, symphonic synth ambience, and new age instrumental aspects.
