3 stars Dun only album is almost a legend, at least a legend ,coming from not-so-great for prog music 80-s.I listened to it with interest, but really wasn't so much impressed.

First of all, the music is very complex, but not dark or heavy. Magma's early albums are just music from Orffian hell comparing with "Eros". Yes, you will easy hear there zeuhl-like bass and drums combination on this album. But there are strong jazz fusion (I will name it soulless formal jazz fusion) component. But most important besides of these two elements, main influence and all music's aesthetics come from chamber avant, and not Henry Cow, but more Universe Zero like.

What means you can hear very complex formal cold technical neo-classical avant-garde influenced mix of jazz fusion and zeuhl-like rhythm section. Was it interesting to listen this album for me? Yes. Was I impressed? Yes - by complex (over)arrangements and high (technical) musicianship level. Do I like this music? No way.

You can take zeuhl concept from Magma, add complexity and cold formal chamber neo - classic avant garde, and if you're skilled musician, the result will be impressive. But will it be great music? I am not sure.

Still technically impressive album though. Possibly, more chamber RIO, than zeuhl.
