4 stars Keeping the flag high in prog music

Silent cries and mighty echoes from 1979 is a very strong Eloy album, among the best from them, close to a masterpice but not as good as the predecesor Ocean. Here we have on some pieces and is not something new about Eloy's music, floydian atmospehere, spacey guitars and keybords. Another thing to mention is that Eloy's music by the time they reach the end of the '70's is still very good and with high quality in their albums, kinda hard to find on other prog lengends that begun very well in the 1970 and by the late '70's thy became or more AOR or pop prog bands, examples are many. Eloy keep the flag and standards very high in progressive music in that period, and this is very good. So the best pieces are all, not a step down from the previosses albums. Silent cries and mighty echoes desearve 4 stars without question, among the best late'70' albums, recommended not only for Eloy fans but for those who listen to good spacey progressive music in general. Excellent.
