4 stars I really love this album and it hasn't dated at all.It actually sounds better with age. It is not as symphonic as past works but the songwriting is up there with Eloy's best. My personal favourite is All Life Is One,the most ellaborate song of the album. Escape To The Heights is space rock perfection.And the album ends with the brilliant Metromania.This album as a whole is more focussed and is perfect driving music. Very easy on the mind as well.Puts me in a great mood this record. The production is very slick as well.The only downside is it is a bit thin but an adjustment of Eq on your personal audio system of choice soon fixes that up. When I first heard this in the 80s,I would have given it a 2.5 but listening now,it has really grown on me and I now regard it as a 4 star album.Put away your feelings about how Eloy SHOULD sound and just listen to it on it's own merits and you will enjoy it.
