5 stars Eloys' "Oceans" was my introduction into the band, right next to "Silent Cries...", and has become one of my favorite Prog records over the years. Pink Floyd was my first taste of space rock, but Oceans showed me what an entire album of tripping through space and time was like. I wasn't too sure I would enjoy the vocals at first, but they do grow on you after a while. While the vocals department may be lacking, the band makes up for it in the instrumentation. Synthesizers and screeching guitars carry you into the album like a riptide dragging a helpless swimmer out to sea. The first 3 tracks of this 4 part album are prog majesty, while the 4th track is alright. It drags on with monotone commentary for 1/3 of the song, but once the band comes in, they explode with full force. No record is perfect, but this one is damn near close. 5/5 stars for me.

Best Track: Poseidons' Creation

Worst Track: Atlantis' Agony...

Scorpius | 5/5 |
