5 stars Eloy have released a very special live album that caters to the huge fanbase with "Reincarnation On Stage". They revisit their masterpiece albums of the 70s and focus on "Colours" in particular which is no problem for me personally as I love those albums. "Ocean" is represented along with the brilliant first 3 songs of "Silent Echoes and Mighty Cries".

Decay of Logos, Bells of Notre Dame and the incredible Atlantis' Agony at June 5th 8498, 13 P.M. Gregorian Earthtime are among the highlights. The songs are augmented by a great production and very clear vocals from the wonderful Frank Bornemann. Gerlach and Folberth's keyboards are fabulous and really shine in the ambient sections. The 3 female vocalists sing beautifully and with emotional fervour enhancing the concert experience. Frank speaks to the crowd in German but of course sings English. Every lyric is discernible and I have really grown to love his inimitable style over the years. Eloy ignore the lesser known albums of the 90s more or less and focus on the classics such as "Dawn", "Power and Passion" and "Planets" though there are a few cuts from the more recent albums such as "The Tides Return Forever".

It is a long concert of over 2 hours and one I would like to see released on DVD. I was absolutely enthralled with this concert. Every song was executed with passion and dexterity. This is a real treasure. Yet another masterful performance from this sensational band.
