Hi 

I'm in an Eloy mood tonight and I was wondering what is your favourite album by this amazing band. I know that people doesn't agree on which is the better so I tought it would be interesting. I can't decide between Ocean and Planets..

I can't claim to have heard nearly all of them, but of those that I have (mainly during their "classic" phase), it's OCEAN that I normally turn to, followed by SILENT CRIES...

I don't understand the love for Ocean, to me it sounds like 100% corn.  Easily the worst of their first 7 albums.

Inside for me.  Runner-up probably Dawn, or maybe Floating

Ocean sounds much better on Eloy Live to my ears.

Eloy are a band who really don't enthuse me that much generally; some of their stuff tends towards corny space rock.
 
But they're good musicians and they certainly never do anything to offend. I really like Time to Turn, so it gets my vote.
I have many faults. Being wrong is not one of them.
