I believe this is one of Eloy's best albums. Heavily influenced by Pink Floyd, and spacey in nature; this is a high quality album, and contains my favourite song from the band : Apocalypse. The band has the same strength and weakness here too : mediocre singing + melodies, yet virtuosic musicianship.

Astral Entrance/Master of Sensation is a song influenced by 'Shine on you Crazy Diamond' After the mellow introduction, the song increases pace and turns into a rocker. The Apocalypse should be considered a classic of progressive rock and it is perfect. Even the vocal melodies are good here. It is a 15-minute long epic that offers plenty of musical sections, perfect flow, good rhythm sections (Especially close to the end), and keyboard wizardry. Around the middle of the song, a brilliant theme played on keyboard is later repeated on gorgeous female vocals. The ending of the song is the best part : a brilliant buildup with an AMAZING solo of overdubbed synths during the buildup and a rocking guitar riff to conclude the piece!! The next three songs are good, but nothing special. Mighty Echoes has some great keyboard and guitar riffing though.

1. Astral Entrance (5/10) 2. Master Of Sensation (6/10) 3. The Apocalypse (9.5/10) 4. Pilot To Paradise (5.5/10) 5. De Labore Solis (5.5/10) 6. Mighty Echoes (6.5/10)
