5 stars Next to "Ocean", "Silent Cries And Mighty Echoes" would rank as my next favorite ELOY album of all time regardless of the unfair criticism received by many as being a deliberate attempt to rip-off PINK FLOYD's "Wish You Were Here". In many ways I do hear a strong polarity towards FLOYD's "Wish You Were Here", but also is full of that classic ELOY original space sound. This is one of those "turn it up loud" type of recordings which your neighbors or co-workers will inquire about. I should probably also mention that this album was originally released on the Harvest recording label. Opening track "Astral Entrance/Mater Of Sensation" is perhaps my fav all time ELOY tracks which has simply amazing bass, guitar and keyboard work. This whole album is solid from start to finish and carries a very strong space feeling capturing ELOY at their height of their creative career. Songs have a heavy bass groove with loads of echo guitar and the most delicious atmospheric keyboard work you ears could tolerate.
