2 stars Like many bands of the late sixties / early seventies, this debut album is not really in-line with their later production. I would say that there are two mainstreams here : the psychedelic side which is influenced by "Floyd" as well as "Jefferson Airplane" to a certain extent and a harder side with lots of mighty guitar. "Purple Mark I" is of influence as well (mainly noticeable during "Song of a Paranoid" but not only).

This album sounds a bit outdated. No real highlights to be mentioned and just one very weak number "Voice of Revolution". Things will get better with "Isle of Sun". Vocals definitely remind me of Rod Evans ("Purple - Mark I"). It's a pleasant rock balad with a good keyboards solo. Here again, Jon Lord is not far away.

"Dillus Roady" is more on the "Heep" side. So, actually there are very little personality in here.

"Eloy" will be in better shoes when they will start playing their great space-rock for which they are better known. Some good psychedelia here, but not as much as I would have liked. An average album which is interesting to the ones who are willing to compare the early "Eloy" with their later production.

Two stars.
