Albedo 0.39 is a studio album by Greek electronic musician Vangelis, originally released in 1976 via RCA Records.

Vangelis is a Greek musician and composer of electronic, progressive, ambient, jazz, and orchestral music. He is best known for his Academy Award-winning score to Chariots of Fire (1981), as well as for composing scores to the films Blade Runner (1982), Missing (1982), Antarctica (1983), The Bounty (1984), 1492: Conquest of Paradise (1992), and Alexander (2004), and for the use of his music in the PBS documentary Cosmos: A Personal Voyage by Carl Sagan.

Greek electronic composer Vangelis created his piece Albedo 0.39 while influenced by blues and jazz music. The concept album is themed around space physics and the title is based on the planet's albedo; the proportion of the light it receives that is reflected back into space.

Albedo 0.39 features amazing pieces like “Pulstar” and “Alpha” and went on to become his first British Top 20 title.

Vangelis played every instrument on the record, which contains effective and versatile synthesizer passages. The sci-fi techno sounds and progressive parts mark the different sides of the record, infused with jazz. A truly wonderful listening experience and a must-have for every progressive and electronic music fan.

The multiple-award-winning composer of electronic, progressive, orchestral and jazz music started his career working in several successful bands, such as Aphrodite's Child. He has composed over 50 albums and is still creative in developing new concepts.

This album is a limited edition of 1,500 individually numbered copies on 180 gram audiophile transparent blue coloured vinyl with a printed inner sleeve, pressed in Europe via Music On Vinyl.
