3 stars Eidelon from France has so far only released one album. Hopefully, they will release some more stuff.

Their music is relying heavily on Pink Floyd to the extent that parts of this album is Pink Floyd worship. Just listen to the parts on Part Two of this symphony. It is Floydism at it's best. Other parts of the album has a lot in common with Eloy. So references to this band and album is both Pink Floyd and Eloy.

The sound is muddy as in Psychedelic/Space Rock. But there are also a few Symph Prog elements here. Hence, this album is not purely a Psychedelic/Space Rock album. Somewhere on this album, some folk music also crops it's head up.

The melodies here are mostly long Psychedelic/Space Rock excersises with some symph thrown in to spice things up. The vocals are good and so are the musicianship.

The overall quality is good throughout without really converting me to a Eidelon fan. There are some very good stuff here and some merely decent stuff here. The law of averages means a good album to me. I am enjoying this album to a large extent. Hopefully, we will hear more from this band in the future.

3 stars
