2 stars Deceiving... There is not much of Eloy's touch here, not even the space metal approach they tried to develop in the mid 80's. One of the reason is that the band broke up after the former album, Metromania, and three members recorded this soundtrack without Frank Bornemann under Eloy's name. The result is... pretty dated and uninspired. Synth pop rock put in short and mainly instrumental tracks. The (few) songs which save the record are often electronic.

The disc opens with The Patrol, which first notes makes you wonder if it is truly music from Eloy you are listening to. The tune is poor is quickly boring. Same goes for Hong Kong Theme I. Hit And Run is one the most enjoyable piece of the soundtrack with its futuristic and laser sound. Then comes the only sung moment of the disc, Queen Of Rock'n'Roll, which is just a basic hair pop-metal song. Destiny, Deadlock and A Long Goodbye work ok as ambient and mysterious tunes, whereas Discovery, Juke Box, Cha-Shoen and On the Edge are a bit lazy and repetitive. The end does not get better.

Codename Wildgeese is the only release from Eloy without Frank Bornemann and easily the worst. Don't expect enchanting melodies, guitar solos, symphonic evolutions or space metal here. The only interests are some electro ambient short pieces. The rest just ressembles to a flat action movie soundtrack from the 80s.

1 stars Codename Eloy

As other reviewers have pointed out, this is not really an Eloy album proper despite carrying that name. This is an almost completely instrumental movie soundtrack to an obscure film and the line-up is severely truncated. Frank Bornemann is not even here and hence none of his vocals and guitars that otherwise define the Eloy sound. This music has indeed very little to do with Eloy as we know them or with Prog of any kind for that matter. What we have here is much more towards pure electronic music than to the usual hard edged, spacy Prog Rock of Eloy's other albums. I am often reminded of Larry Fast's Synergy while hearing these largely electronic tunes. As such, they are decent if unoffensive. The sole exception is Queen Of Rock 'n' Roll, an awful Rock 'n' Roll number that is totally out of place on this album. This is the only track that features vocals.

I would say that this album is strictly for hard core Eloy fans and completionists

2 stars Absolutely for completionists only... but I would say higher than one star. This is definitely a hard album to get your hands on which is kind of the fun in having it. With one of the cheesiest album covers the world has ever seen, this "Eloy" album has more in common with the video game Double ... (read more)
