4 stars The German ELOY is obviously one of the most celebrated continental prog names but quite unknown here in Finland for some reason - like almost any psychedelic prog apart from Floyd's debut seems to be. This LP I found from a flea market last autumn. I haven't given it very many spins yet... Nevertheless, this music works extremely well in its own field. Somehow it's charming to see such a serious psychedelic and conceptual approach in '77 when both things - as well as prog in general - were considered old-fashioned.

This album has four lengthy tracks and a concept about the myth of Atlantis, but it all stays quite accessible and the musical drama keeps flowing from start to end. Frank Bornemann's vocals sound a bit like Roger Waters, and the plentiful keyboards would be at home on Tangerine Dream's late 70's albums. Rhythm section is very solid too. 'Incarnation of the Logos' can be streamed from this site. Give it a try and be taken into a psychedelic ride in the oceanic myths. But don't play this music in a party if you don't want to appear as a relic (ok, you could use this to accompany a drug trip, but drugs are for losers!).
