4 stars One of their best album easily...uhm i just remark that nearly the half of their albums can be called their best !!... If You like cold atmospheric music... this is where you ve got to land ... here is Germany ... a place specialized in cloudy frozen music (ok popol vuh makes me lie) Eloy is this beautiful and frozen...specially in their late 70s lps If you like Pink Floyd 'Animals' & previous opus 'wish u where here' ...this is a nice discover... the album is great & maybe the only reason why they dont diserve 5 stars in this one... is that they're too close 2 the Floyd...but to call them a Floyd cover band is ridiculous... Their other albums prove it... even this one is more atmospheric than most Floyd stuff... if this is not a mark of difference! I respect this band and one of the main reason is that this prog band survived longer than the other one... Often the last decent album by most prog 70s bands were recorded between 75 & 78 ... Eloy push 5 years more their limit... In the early 80s they were prog survivors ...their feets upon earth & their heads remainin in the clouds can explain maybe this remarkable resistance...
