4 stars This is where I began with Eloy, finding a second hand vinyl in a record shop in Gilligate, York. I'd never heard of them before, but took a chance. It remains one of my favourite Eloy albums and, for anyone new to the band, the one I'd recommend to start with. Much more focussed than their space rock beginnings, less techno than some of their 1980's work. Their influences were becoming less obvious and the sound more their own. Though I enjoy their earlier albums, I find some of those tracks a bit too long and the lyrics less mature than here. The concept pair of albums, Planets and Time To Turn, followed Colours and follow the course found in this work. All the EMI albums were reissued (with bonus tracks) a few years ago in what was one of the most successful remastering campaigns ever - they sound glorious.
