4 stars One of the top-spacerock albums of all times.

Those who wish to hear lots of guitarsolos and heavy riffing should avoid this one.

This one is the Eloy-record wich is prominently dominated by keyboards and even adds orchestra to the overall sound.

From beginning to end this is symphonic space-rock with heavy rhythm work, female vocals, sonic landscapes, lots of instrumental interludes and even Frank's german/english accent is not annoying.

Together with it's follow-up Time To Turn, this is the last solid work by the band. A must-have for Eloy and spacerock fans in general.

Stand out-tracks: On The Verge Of Darkening Lights, Sphinx and Carried By Cosmic Winds.

Kingsnake | 4/5 |
