4 stars Ocean is the 6th studio album from the band Eloy that released in 1977. Ocean is a concept album that tells the story of the sinking of Atlantis. Why Ocean decides to tell this story is not completely clear to me because I can think of several reasons for the telling of this story, so ill let you decide. One of the great things about art is the ability to interpret it in many ways, and I think this album represents that greatly. The album is very ambient at times, spacey, and watery, thanks to the fantastic synth playing by Detlev Schmidtchen, he does a good job at portraying the lyrics through the music. Of course everyone on the album shows great instrumentation as well. The lyrics are good but the vocals are definitely not for me, most of the time hes just talking. other than that I really enjoyed this album and would easily recommend this to anyone. 4/5 excellent addition to any prog collection.
