3 stars In the second half of the Seventies a record store in The Hague started to sell Krautrock albums, within a few months I had doubled my progrock LP collection!

This album is still one of my favorite Eloy albums (it contains five melodic compositions) because of the powerful blend of bluesrock, symphonic and psychedelia . Frank Borneman plays a lot of inspired harder-edged guitar soli, often wah-wah drenched. Keyboard player Manfred Wieczorcke delivers compelling Hammond organ runs and his interplay with the guitar from Frank sounds very tasteful. The highlight on this album is the long track "The light from the deep darkness" (almost 15 minutes), this is early Eloy at their best with flowing shifting moods and very compelling soli on guitar and organ. The echoes from Pink Floyd are obvious but Eloy avoids to sound as a derivative.

RECOMMENDED AS A STARTER!
