3 stars Visionary remarked the band's return into business after eleven years vacuum. The music still represents their original style with spacey keyboard drenched style backed with solid basslines and drumming. This album does not stand out as an excellent one even if you are a die hard fan of this Germany band. But it's good that Eloy still exist until now. The only track that I consider as excellent one is the third track 'Age of Insanity' as it has great melody, excellent harmonies and vibes reminiscing the original sound of Eloy with great flow, stunning keyboard solo. I think most of Eloy die hard fans would like this track very much. While the first two opening tracks are too loose in terms of composition and melody and they tend to be boring.

The Time to Turn Part 2 is basically a good one and it's still in line with Eloy musical style especially in its groovy psychedelic style. However this track is quite boring even as it starts - it's too simple as a composition. But I love the keyboard work. As the title implies this one is similar with Time To Turn, in fact the chorus line where the female vocal enters, is exactly the same. It's like weak in terms of originality as it lends some of the melody from vintage track. Mystery (The Secret, Part 2) is actually a good track as well - but again's boring.

Overall's still a good album by Eloy especially if you are a die hard fan of the band.

Peace on earth and mercy mild - GW
