5 stars This was the first album I heard and bought from Eloy, mainly because it contains their longest song to date at 17 minutes. Also, I really liked the artwork on this album. The album has a very symphonic feel to it, but also brings to mind Jethro Tull.

-Land Of No Body- Utter brilliance. Aside from a 4-minute ambient section in the middle, the rest of this song rocks extremely hard. Lots of mood changes and amazing riffs. The lyrics are great as well. There isn't an uninteresting moment on the track. Definitely worth having the album for!

-Inside- This song starts off slowly but gets into the swing of things about 90 seconds in. The melody is very memorable, and the instrumental is stunning, getting faster as it goes on. Before the end of the song there is another extremely fast instrumental, closing a fantastic track.

-Future City- A bit of comic relief. Probably most recognisable for the fun instrumental, this is quite a funky song. The vocal parts are also very good, and this becomes another incredibly enjoyable song.

-Up And Down- So you're thinking, 'OK three pretty good tracks, there has to be a downside right?'. Listening to the first 2 minutes, you might be a bit bored by this track, but then at about 3 minutes there is a fantastic instrumental. In fact this instrumental, followed by the vocals at about 5 minutes into the song really make this song worthwhile. The last 2 minutes are basically a very long repeat to fade. However the entire song is still very enjoyable.

So there you have it. All of the tracks on Inside are tracks that I love to listen to again and again, so I have no choice but to give it the 5 stars it deserves. The remastered CD includes two bonus tracks from a single that was released in that period; Daybreak is quite good but On The Road is really awesome, and its just a shame its so short at under 3 mins.
