So far, I have not enjoyed any of their songs as much as the song, "Mutiny,"
which I do think is epic.

What single songs are also very classic to you?

If you are looking for epicness and classicness, try any song from their 1977 album "Ocean": it is both a quintessential progressive rock album and their best album (a title shared IMO with Dawn, from 76, albeit Dawn isn't quitessential, so just begin at Ocean).

If you like that, try Colours, all of its songs could be single releases IMO. Their latest albums is also prodigal in songs that could be singles. However, those two could be called "accessible" so approach with caution.

Ocean is my least favourite of the 5 or 6 Eloy albums I have.  Inside is the best.

Inside is definitely their best-all the songs fit together so well, and each song has its own special appeal

Pardon my French, I love Inside and it is a great album, but the band has other albums which are simply better.

Eloy is a band I need to check out... I heard a song a few days ago, randomly on internet radio, Poseidon's Creation.... A positive surprise! I like the sound. I have to check out Oceans.
