4 stars Another unknown but very good symphonic album. Point of Eruption is the only release from Troya. The music sounds both melancholic and space, and is mainly guitar and mellotron driven.

The opener, She, introduces the disc with smooth organ and light guitar, to go on with beautiful symphonic piano and vocals. Battle Rock is more energic and alternates between epic and slow movements. The next song, Chromatik, features mysterious atmosphere and trippy guitar solos sometimes reminiscent of Novalis. Festival announces that the second part of the album will be dominated by organ and mellotron and is very psychedelic. The two final tracks Sinclair and Choke conclude superbly the album and let the listener in the sky...

Point of Eruption is not terribly different from other albums of the genre from this period, but is very enjoyable and relaxing. It's a pity that the album is too short and the sound quality is below average. Anayway, a beautiful spacey symphonic album which should please fans of Pink Floyd, Eloy and Novalis !

Modrigue | 4/5 |
