Review by Sean Trane
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Prog Folk
1 stars Eclipse's second album in PA's database is one of those to be avoided at all cost, being one of the worse disco offenders with Alan Sorrenti's later 70's slice wax. Given their debut's promise, this album even received a German release on the Casablanca label (Kiss and Trees, a.o.) with a different artwork, although that one is a lot more fitting for the album's musical contents. Indeed, the Quebecois prog boom of the early to mid-70's received a slow & ugly death throe from the Disco tsunami that swept the "la belle province" from 78 onwards, but Eclipse preceded that by a few months.

Opening on the album's typical track Space Love (the only Eclipse original on this side), a spacey-electronic affected groove that's stuck on a simplistic disco beat >> yuckkkk!!! Similarly (and surprisingly) the Steppenwolf cover Born To Be Wild receives the same treatment, thus making it potentially the worst cover of any kind?. Until you hit Donovan 's Sunshine Superman following it, but worse is yet to come with the simply atrocious Kinks punky classic "You really got me" getting rthe disco treatment. The flipside can't fare worse, even if the energy level is slightly superior, some tracks that could eventually fit in the AOR mould (Bring It Home, Lady) or in the soft-rock vein (Losing our love) and absolutely nothing to redeem the album to the proghead's ears. Best avoided if you ask me.

1 stars I think that Sean Trane said enough about this one already when he said that "Night and Day" is "to be avoided at all cost", but I feel that by having an average score of 1.05 at the time of me writing this, this album has been treated far too generously by this website. It really has got to be one of the worst recordings I've ever heard.

After a debut which featured the gorgeous "Vision Intérieure", those involved with Eclipse must have gone through some sort of traumatic incident that stole their souls, because "Night and Day" is absolutely hideous. The music on this album is exclusively synth-pop and disco shrill that ends up butchering several classic rock songs and the cover makes "Love Beach" look like a Roger Dean masterwork. Seriously, what is up with those eyes on the far left? Put simply, there is no point in owning this album, except perhaps as a conversation piece or, more realistically, a torture device. This may very well be the single *worst* entity in the entire progarchives database. 1 star, rounded up.
