4 stars This 1980 single is a bit different from what you expect out of Eloy. "Wings of Vision" is an obvious attempt at sounding just like Duke-era Genesis, which happen to come out roughly the same time. It's really funny to hear Frank Bornemann attempt to sing like Phil Collins, but in the end still sound like Frank Bornemann. Even Hannes Folberth attempts some Tony Banks-type keyboards, but from his synths, but then there's a spacy break that's undeniably Eloy. I was really tripping out that Eloy would go Genesis on us like that. You can tell Jim McGillivray's style is his own, he doesn't attempt to imitate Phil Collins' drumming. As for the B-Side, "Sunset", it's a short instrumental synth-piece, already found on Colours, so if you have Colours, no surprises here as it's directly taken from the album.

I can see not everyone will like "Wings of Vision", but I do, but just think of it a Duke-era Genesis song done by Eloy, and you'll be fine.
