4 stars This is part two of the story that began with the previous album "Planets". It seems a lot of people prefer "Planets" to this one which I knew going into it. So yeah I was surprised at how much I liked this record. I can see why some dismiss it, it's very accessible with an almost 80's PINK FLOYD flavour to it.The keyboards have been cut back on this one when compared to "Planets". There's nothing really new or challenging here, yet I love the way this record sounds. It's simply an enjoyable listen from start to finish.

"Through A Somber Galaxy" opens with a keyboard-fest before a nice relaxing soundscape takes over a minute in. Vocals join in, and check out the Gilmour-like guitar before 3 minutes as he lights it up. Nice. The main melody for behind "The Walls Of Imagination" doesn't kick in until before 2 1/2 minutes. Nice bass and keyboard work. Love the guitar solo 4 1/2 minutes in. Great sounding song. "Time To Turn" features a beat that comes in right away. Vocals and synths join in quickly. Guitar is next in this toe tapper. Haha. Female backup vocals come in before 2 1/2 minutes and later. Excellent guitar too. "Magic Mirrors" has a good beat with lots of synths, vocals a minute in. The synths sound so good before 4 1/2 minutes right to the end.

"End Of An Odyssey" is the longest track at 9 1/2 minutes.The synths are all over this one. A steady beat then drums come in more prominantly before 3 minutes.Guitar before 5 minutes then vocals. This sounds really good. "The Flash" has some nice bass that reminds me of PINK FLOYD. Vocals join in quickly. Synths galore after 3 minutes. "Say,Is It Really True" is different from all the others. It opens with Frank saying "Hey, hey" then guitar and synths come in followed by vocals.The sound is quite uplifting. It's more passionate 3 1/2 minutes in.

Another winner from ELOY.These guys have really had an amazing career and their latest "Ocean II" shows they haven't lost any of the passion or inspiration.
