4 stars A very good, soft ambient spacey progressive rock album, with some heavy symphonic pieces. Drum and bass create a very solid, strong rhythm section, that counterpoints the more atmosperic spacey/floating keyboards, with occassional edgy guitar. Great solo-ing throughout the album. The more heavy parts reminds me of Uriah Heep at times, and the singer has a nice voice (IMO) with a slight German accent. A good album.

1. Introduction (1:10)/2. Jouney Into 1358 (2:56) Spacey keyboards and ambient waves lead to an eruption of more dynamic rock structures, with great pulsing bass/drum play. 3. Love Over Six Centuries (10:05) Spacey well structured song, with a great flow, a hypnotising track. 4. Mutiny (9:07) Again ambient/atmospheric keyboards with a dynamic rock rhythm section, very melodic medieval military drums and keyboards/guitars. great song. 5. Imprisonment (3:12) A soft slow balad, with a melancholy mood.

6. Daylight (2:38), great rhythmic drumming, melodic synths and strong swirling melodies. 7. Thoughts Of Home (1:04) A short track, which serves as an intro to the Uriah Heep like 8. The Zany Magician (2:38) with UH guitar/rhythms, just a tad slower. A bit Zany indeed. 9. Back Into The Present (3:07) Spacey keyboards and ambient sounds transport us back into the present, with a more contemporary (1975) Rock and Roll sound. 10. The Bells Of Notre-Dame (6:26) A fitting ending to this album, a very melancholic soft balad, with some good instrumentation, with a floydian guitar part.

Eloy's The Power And The Passion, is a nice album, with a spacey feel to it and some more rocking moments, which they seem to blend in just as eassily. 4 stars. I'd recommend Dawn and Oceans first, but if you like those, you will not be dissapointed.
