5 stars This is in the string of Eloy's best collection of albums, spanning from 1976-1982. With the new lineup, Frank could truely express himself with the music he was meant to play. It's much stronger than the previous album because the new memebers have much more musical talent, though the orchestra sometimes holds the sound back, its such a flavorful experience to listen to this album. It's a concept album, so I am going to grade it as one.

The opening is excellent. With beautiful orchestra, its the least of the other parts of the album because it seems a bit weak, though its perfect for this kind of album. The sections to this album are definatly very well fitting for most of the time, with the best guitar parts performed by a man named Frank, and some of the best basslines are definatly on this album. Klaus is a very good bassist, let me tell you. His thunderbird is definatly very well heard in the mix, and not too bottom end like much of the other bands at the time, but other prog bassists such as Geddy Lee, and Chris Squire were well in the mix with Klaus. Now, to one of the best keyboardists ever, Detlev plays some great piano parts, and is very good at what he does on this album. Jurgen is another amazing drummer, much different from others I have heard because of his overall style. There are only a few parts of this album that I do not like, "Lost (Introduction)" is meaningless to me, but the rest of the album is excellent.

This album you have to get by Eloy because its in the string of amazing albums, 1976-1982. The album is obviously a masterpiece, so I give it a 5 stars because you need to get your hands on it and listen.
