It is very interesting to see how different can a debut album sound from the classic and most popular following records by the same band, Eloy's debut record is an example of that: the essence of this record is very far from the spacey rock the band developed from 1973 to 1979, actually, this album is much more oriented to a bluesy Hard Rock that resembles more to bands such as Wishbone Ash, Atomic Rooster, Birth Control and Deep Purple (Evans days). The record is filled with excellent guitar riffs and very strong bass and drum lines throughout the entire piece, nothing really special or fully remarkable but absolutely enjoyable. The classic sound of Eloy would appear in their late records, this is a very nice debut but definitely not an indispensable album, entertaining and interesting to discover and occasionally listen to, but no more than that.

SONG RATING: Today, 4 Something yellow, 4 Eloy, 4 Song of a paranoid soldier, 3 Voice of revolution, 3 Isle of the sun, 3 Dillus roady, 4
