3 stars While I particularly like the debut and self-titled Eloy album, I do understand why some of the Eloy fans would not second my opinion. The reason for that is - believe it or not - that "Eloy" is not exactly a progressive rock album, but a classic 70's rock album.... And a fairly good one by the way, despite having come as a big surprise to someone who discovered Eloy listening to Dawn (1976), Ocean (1977) and Planets (1981) albums like me. If you don't consider yourself a hardcore/radical Eloy fan, you will probably enjoy listening to the space guys from Germany with a true rock and roll attitude, a more raw sound and infinitely less effects..... One will find signs of what Eloy will turn into on the following albums in songs like "Isle Of Sun" and "Something Yellow" but they are mixed with traditional (and very nice) rock n roll songs such as the opening act "Today" and "Song of a Paranoid Soldier"... I will rating as 3 starts just cause this album would not fit so well in a prog rock collection, but hey, you have 2 very good reasons to not to discard this album: first because is a great rock and roll album and last but not least, because it's ELOY :-)))
