2 stars "Inside" was a brilliant introduction of the new Eloy sound, and "Floating" tried to replicate that formula. In some ways the jams are even more compelling than on the previous album, and wordless vocals seem fine when there really isn't much to say anyway. The problem lies with the compositions or lack thereof. This album really sounds like it was thrown together on a weekend binge. I say this because there will be those who actually prefer it to Inside on that basis alone. But in terms of refinement, arranging, and subtlety, it places a distant second.

If you are in the mood for loads of well played organ, riffs, totally stoned vocals, chunky bass and rhythm section, and Bornemann's lead guitar off the leash, then you will enjoy tracks like the title cut, "Light from Deep darkness", and "Castles in the Air". Personally, while I enjoy all of this in small doses, it really isn't what gets me going, so I have to rate it accordingly. 2.5 stars, rounded down.
