2 stars The first album from Eloy is more or less an hard-rock album with influences from the entire spectrum of bands of this particular genre. There is nothing out of the ordinary but is not a bad start.

Erich Schriever is the lead vocal and because of this it's almost as it wouldn't be Eloy. The sound doesn't have that spacey touch of the later albums and it is more like an average hard rock band of the seventies. On some songs(e.g. Something Yellow or Dillus Roady) the rhythmic guitar sounds a bit too repetitive and boring. The most interesting, inspired and memorable song here is probably "Isle of the sun". It is a low tempo melodic keyboard driven song and the only sign of the great albums Eloy produced in that decade.

Recommendable for Eloy and hard-rock fans only. Prog head buddies will probably want to check out some of the later releases of Eloy catalog because this one is for sure not representative from them.
