The music returns to the same sort of groove that Vangelis explored in Spanish Harbour. The music has a blissful feel and sums up the easy-going attitude of most of the album, and then fades out to the surf sounds that began the album.
The surf sounds and new age feel may put off some listeners that have heard too much of the lite instrumental songs that pass for new age music. The surf sounds have been used and abused by lite new age groups for 15 years, and some of the music on Oceanic tends toward the superficial gloss.
Vangelis, though, was using these effects years before they became routine, and still does it more effectively than others. Some of his effects sound like whales, ships horns, porpoises, seagulls and even chimes at a beach house. His use of ambient effects is as masterful as his orchestration. Remember music for a old musical!

The album includes effects which sound like whales, ships horns, porpoises, seagulls and even chimes.
