4 stars This ia real gem.

It's one of those albums than can only be made in the early seventies. 4 long songs in different styles but with lots of emphasis on the organ and guitarsolo. Inside is always paired with Floating, because they both have the same approach and sound.

Here Bornemann has a different vocal approach than on later albums, almost similar to Ian Anderson. But that comparison has been made a million times.

The album starts of with one of the true hammond-epics ever made. Lots and lots of organ in this one. Real psychedelic rock and not yet space- or symphonic rock, where Eloy got known for in later years.

Side two has shorter songs where the titletrack is a hardrocking song with nothing really special, but a great guitarsolo.

Future City is psychedelic and has realy Tull-influences. The middle-section with all the percussion is a real suprise and kind of catchy.

Up and Down is the real spacerock-song on this album. Real slow and meandering, it's a great trip with great guitar and organ.

Other bands that do this kind of thing are: Hoelderlin, Jane, Nektar and Grobschnitt. I love it!

Kingsnake | 4/5 |
