Review by b_olariu
4 stars Elohim is a progressive rock band from France, releasing only one album in 1983 named Mana perdu and re release on CD by Musea in 2000. To me this album is a total winner, specialy this kind of prog release in the '80's, keeps the flag high in prog music. This is a conceptual album about a creature named ELO 666 and all his religious problems involved around him. What stroke me the most is the keybords here, very fine arrangements, very good musicianship, nice ideas. Maybe the sound is typical for the '80's, but doesn't stop to be this album a real solid release for that period. The vocal parts remind me of Ange or Mona Lisa, with some theatrical aproach, but the instrumental passages realy shines. I easely can say this is one of the best albums from prog rock I've heared from the '80's. Complex arrangements, subtile keybords blistering moments, just listen to the opening track, the longest from here L'Effet Stricking, brilliant. I was surprise to se that this band has no reviews yet here, they are totaly unnoticed to larger public, I wonder why because this album is a good ex of solid symphonic prog in dark period of this genre. Very good album, unfairly unnoticed by prog listners, to me is a solid release that desearve 4 stars easy, better in any way then anything Ange release in that period, who turning in some more and more pop band, Elohim keeps the flag high with this release.Quite similar with for ex danish Zaragon, with a touch besides symphonic prog some hints of early neo. The Musea has this release with 4 bonus tracks, nice pack in the end and worthy music. 4 stars , recommended if you can skip overall '80's sound, the music is a winner for sure.
