2 stars Actually I don't quite remember for what reason I purchased this record years ago (must have been out of the bargain bin) since I knew already their albums before this one and honestly I found Performance and Metronomia already very weak compared to Planets. Eloy had been decreased here to a duo of Bornemann and Gerlach supported by a bunch of guest musicians and this album is probably one of the worst examples for cheesy cheap plastic sound offered under the description of Prog. Computer-generated drum sound and plenty of synths combined with (admittedly) rather good guitar which is still the best component. Far from being considered good I would say unless one likes 80's arena rock but for that era maybe still acceptable and above average! Avoid it and as well the following Destination, not before ten years after this one they would deliver another worthy one with Ocean 2!
