1 stars Maybe the worst in the Eloy catalouge, but it's an alright Rock album. It's got some good vocals, good guitar parts, and some nice keyboards and basslines. This album isn't as interesting or as sucessful as their progressive rock efforts, but they don't do all bad on this album. At least they can hold down a decent rythym, something they would stretch in their next albums.

"Today" has a floating intro, then gets into the rocking part. The guitar is fairly good, and the drumming is superb. The lyrics are terrible because I don't find politics in my rock very good for my listening. The vocals are great on this track, with some harmonies with Frank on this track as you can hear in the background on the "na na na" part. "Somthing Yellow" is the longest track, and is fairly soft and boring. Not much to say about this song other than it has some decent parts, but most of it is unlistenable. "Song of a Paranoid Soldier" has some terrible lyrics, but the music overall is pretty good. The riff is very nice. "Voice of a revolution" is all about movement, but I don't find it an interesting track. Sounds a lot like the Beatles stuff to me, but with a German vocalist. The music is okay, but I don't find it rewarding in the end overall. The rest of the album is the same, subpar with good music and terrible lyrics, but "Isle of the Sun" is the only song that stands out in any way possible.

Worst in the Eloy catalouge, because of it's terrible lyrics and par music, I have to give it a one star for effort, at least. The next albums are much better.
