2 stars It was sad to know that this album did not meet the standard of ELOY music as what they did brilliantly with "Planets" or "Time To Turn". It's not a bad album at all but not all songs are good. To mention a very few one is the opening track "Voyager Of The Future Race" (8:51). This opening track has blended the roots of ELOY music: space keyboard work and psychedelic style and new style of ELOY which the band didn't seem to share until quite sometime later . I cannot deny that this band is truly unique. The other unique characteristic is the vocal quality of Frank Borneman.

In my opinion, this album was not made in a complete way as out of 6 tracks only one track that later became "enjoyable". It's not only that, the opening track has non-linear structure and tempo change. Once you listen to track 1, then you continue next racks what you might feel "bored" with the following tracks. Most of following tracks sound like a pop song with loose composition.

I leave it up to you on what decision you might want to take. It's not a good album but definitely it's suitable for ELOY fans. Keep on proggin' ..!!

Peace on earth and mercy mild - GW
