4 stars Inspired by Pink Floyd, Eloy managed to create their own sound, and in the late 70s released a trilogy of Space Rock-defining albums. This is the second of that trilogy and maybe the most typical recording of the group. It's a concept album about the rise and fall of Atlantis.

I start with some heavy riffing in "Poseidon's Creation", a colossal song fitting for a god. The next track, "Incarnation of the Logos", is not a bad track but not as good as the rest of the album. Better is "Decay of the Logos", including it's beginning in an atmospheric keyboard solo. Ending the album is fifteen minutes long "Atlantis Agony." A strange song with a lot of spoken word on the first half.

One of the classic Space Rock albums, which together with its fitting artwork is a complete artwork.

Frasse | 4/5 |
