3 stars Born in 1968 in Caxias do Sul, this talented Brazilian keyboardist first met with Electronic Music at the age of 13 through spending time with his father, who was an electronic engineer, at the local radio.A couple of years later he found Apocalypse and simultaneously he developed his knowledge in Computer Science and keyboards.During the mid-90's he started releasing albums with Apocalypse and by 1995 he already had launched his first very rare album ''Dreams''.Two years later Apocalypse would take a break on releasing studio efforts, while Fritsch prepared and released his second personal album ''Behind the Walls of Imagination'', offered through the Brazilian label Gravadora Atracao Fonografica.

Armed with various keyboards, such as his beloved Korg synth, and his knowledge on computers, Fritsch delivers fascinating, cinematic Electronic Music along the lines of VANGELIS and JEAN MICHELLE JARRE, which however has a strong Prog background.Half about of the album is dedicated to cosmic, electronic sequences, supported by soaring synthesizers and pounding drums, that eventually create a pompous, grandiose atmosphere with strong symphonic and Classical vibes.Melodies are hard to come, but on the other hand Fritsch'es ability to produce dreamy and imaginery soundscapes is monumental.The rest of the album is somewhat divided in New Age soundfields and more symphonic-oriented, proggy textures.The New Age compositions of Fritsch are decent with a warm and impressive atmosphere, although very relaxed, while the sampled instruments sound quite childish at moments.The rest of the tracks are surprisingly very close to his work with APOCALYPSE, keyboard-based Neo/Symphonic Rock with fancy, sharp synthesizers and good drum parts, finally some nice, emotional, melodic passages do appear among the material in these both excellent and grandiose arrangements.

I am aware of very few composers, who have the ability to travel through such kind of different styles, supported only by their keyboards.Eloy Fritsch is definitely one of them and this album is a pure delight for all fans of keyboard-driven Progressive/Electronic Music.Warmly recommended.
