5 stars And this is my 100th review special: Eloy - Colours (1980)

After several highly rated albums and some line-up changes, the 80s Eloy saga began. And this is my favorite Eloy album. Some radical early fans refused to accept this "different" soundin', without loonger tracks, but in my honest opinion, Colours are just the same Eloy, but improved and mature, a true progressive album. And the cover album is typically amazing. Highly reccomended to Pink Floyd fanatics, since Eloy is currently my pink floyd.

A Side. Horizons, the opening track, is a female singing chorus accompanied by catchy keyboards. A brilliant intro, followed by Illuminations, my favorite track and probably their best songwriting of the A Side. A definitive and essential masterpiece. The song and lyrics progression are awesome, and THAT guitar/keyboard riffs. Giant, the third track, is a floydish track. Good. Impressions, a short song, including nice harmonics and some flutes.

B Side. Child Migration, the seven minutes track (longer of the album) is another great piece. Cool prog song including intelligent lyrics. You can find the funniest keyboards at Gallery, really well done. So we reach the penultimate track, the masterpiece of the B Side, Silhouette. At the first two minutes, a dark atmospheric piano intro and fantastic lyrics. A faded song starts to grow, with the best vocal rhythm of the album. I like the guitar solos, and I love the riff at 5:33~. Sunset is a short acoustic, mysterious ending.

If you haven't got into Colours, I hope you try again!
