5 stars Perhaps the only solid criteria for the excellence of an album is a listener's long-term dedication to it. Colours is one of those outstanding progressive rock expressions which have always provoked in me the same inexpressible thrill and enchantment as a reliable reflection of their artistic value and uniqueness. In 1980 Eloy went through some significant changes, both personally and musically, involving new musicians and accepting a new element - the Arkona's sound of heavy metal guitar, beautifully interwoven with Folberth's synthesizers mastery. The result is a magic chest of sounds, deriving from the excellent guitar work, powerful progressive keyboards, beautiful acoustic elements and captivating flute. Colours is definitely the most mature Eloy's album, leaving behind some of the flaws and limitations evident in their previous efforts including some unnecessary and boring sections and too archaic production. The sound, the atmosphere, the music and the cover - indisputable five stars!
