Prog Reviewer
2 stars I have mixed feelings about this album. This is not really a progressive rock album. This is a classic rock album with elements of other genres (and a few touches of prog) that does not sound like Eloy at all (except for the spacey guitar soloing). The musicianship is good though, and every member gets some time to show their talents. The music is influenced by Pink Floyd, Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, and Uriah Heep.

Today starts this album, and it shows that this is not the eloy we know and love. This is just classic rock. Same for 'Song of a Paranoid Soldier'. 'Eloy' is another track in the same vein, except that there is a good drum solo in the middle. Fortunately, the first half is saved by the song 'Something Yellow' which has amazing led-zeppelin like solos, and black sabbath-like Guitar riffing. The bass guitar is something to pay attention to. Isle of Sun is the song that may remind you of the next albums of Eloy : It is spacey, it is focused on keyboards, and it contains good melodies. The song concludes with a classic rocker 'Dillus Roady'.

1. Today (4.5/10) 2. Something yellow (6.5/10) 3. Eloy (5/10) 4. Song of a paranoid soldier (4.5/10) 5. Voice of revolution (4/10) 6. Isle of sun (7/10) 7. Dillus roady (5/10)

My Grade : D+
