4 stars First of all what a fabulous cover! Probably my favorite progressive rock album cover (along with Marillion's Fugazi). When I first saw this I said to myself 'well I hope the music is worth of it'. With the first sounds of Call Of The Wild I realised the production of this album is excellent. I heard some early band's albums before and it wasn't something I liked. But this one. Hey. Why don't you like it? OK I can understand you prefer less commercial sound and more complex songs but believe me guitar solos on here are technically great. Take this one from Fire & Ice, wow it's like something from John Petrucci. The whole album sounds like something between Shadowland and Yes (90125 era). Just a bit more hard rockish. Vocals are like taken from Yes and I'm not sure I like it. Guitar work is really good and there's a lot of space filled with synthesizers. But it's still rock music. Songs are pretty long but also very melodic and not boring at all. Racing Shadows and Call Of The Wild could be hits but no one cared for Eloy in 1992. And good because it's music for chosen ones. Final song Jeanne d'Arc sums up this album with orchestral power. I got chills up and down my spine. I haven't heard most of Eloy albums but from those I heard Destination is the best. I recommend this piece of good produced well arranged and played with precision music. Listen without prejudice.
