4 stars This is a very special album.

Where most progbands went to shorter songs in 1977 and further, Eloy didn't. This and their next album (1977 and 1979) are the best in their discography and have long songs.

This album only has 4 songs ranging from 8 to 15 minutes and are a feast of melodic bassplaying, guitarsolos, synthsolos and versatile drumming. Only Camel comes close to the grandeur of Ocean.

A lot of people compare Eloy to Pink Floyd, and although they sound similar, Eloy has a different approach. The synths are alike, but the drumming is more creative. Eloy lacks a very good singer, but because the music is so awe-inspiring, this is easily forgiven.

This is perhaps their best produced album. Bornemann is really an underrated producer. Well this is all I can say about this album.

Highly recommended this one!!!
