3 stars Like it used to be the case most of the time with this band they had been with this release here much behind of their time and not knowing that it's actually from 1979 one would put this one right in the middle of the 70's. Starting off in Floyd-WYWH-style in the first two tracks Eloy prove rather to be the masters of boredom than sensation in most of the remaining disk. There's just too little happening and the band wallows too much in this solemn mood dominated by synths carpets and elegiac guitar solos. There's some reminiscence to country fellows of Tangerine Dream in between and overall this record is quite a pleasant listen but really anything outstanding. Just another example of Eloy's bombastic style and another vinyl I keep in my collection mainly for nostalgic reasons. IMHO dated already by the time of its release, extremely derivative and just good, but not essential!
