2 stars Eloy enters the 80s without as much as a blink, continuing their rocking space sympho much where the left it on Silent Cries. The songs are shorter and less captivating, the sound somewhat smoother, and the combination of relaxed rocking material, lush synths and guitars has become less spacey.

The first few tracks are quite good, reminding me of a slicker kind of Hawkwind mixed with the Alan Parsons Project, especially in the I Robot-alike intro and the general sound. The song-material is more psych and a tad melancholic and sure never as commercial and poppy as APP.

Despite the good start, it's an Eloy album without the highlights of the preceding Silent Cries and even fans don't seem be go wild about it. Their next two albums would deliver a more successful execution of the same formula.
