4 stars ELOY's "Colours" is a 'must - have' album clearly representing IMHO one of their best pieces of work. Following close on the tails of "Mighty Cries and Mighty Echoes, "Colours" re-capitulates their classic boundless space corridors with some articulate song writing and deep tones. I think "Colours" may be the most accessible of all their mid period recordings and strays away from any musical allusions to PINK FLOYD and instead mixes in more of the sounds of say the ALAN PARSONS PROJECT and perhaps TULL. I think "Mighty Echoes..." although brilliant was more about a band looking for a fresh identity and it really did not begin to blossom until "Colours" was recorded. I guess this could be called their transitional album. As you would expect ELOY create their large tapestries of space mythos while Frank Bornemann adds his grand guitar solo overlays creating some pretty far reaching musical moments. On "Colours" ELOY opted for some real different sounds and musical expressions making the title of the album very fitting. Overall a great album representing a milestone in German Progressive Rock.
