3 stars Metromania is an 80's album, at the (almost) pure sense of the word. The production has a lot of electronic drums and synths, being a bit cold, but music isn't. The music is warm, inspired and catchy. This album taught me to not dismiss all the decade has offered, if it is well done product. The atmosphere is basically a futuristic one, in a way that Performance didn't accomplish, so this album is more atmospheric and more "prog" than its predecessor.

The opening track is powerful and rocking. "All Life Is One" is spacey and hypnotizing, while "Nightriders" is gross sounding and awful. Bad, BAD 80's production on this particular track!!!! The title song is a masterpiece, and easily the best thing the band made since "The Flash". The other songs are fine and don't spoil the album.

ELOY is getting weaker from now on, but on Ocean II they'll gain full power again!

Eclipse | 3/5 |
