4 stars Ocean is a very ambitious album, aiming to tackle the story of Atlantis. And their main tool in this mission is the synthesizer- and lots of them. Every feeling you can get out of a synth is extracted by Eloy on this album- I can't think of anywhere better to find spacy, transcendent synthesizer work in large quanities than Ocean. The songs are fun to listen to and well-made, though I'm not much of a fan of Decay. However, Atlantis Agony is incredible- the ambient intro with echoing voices like those of a deity, combined with swirling, churning space effects is masterful. Then, when the vocals come in, it gets to the point of near sonic orgasm, very fun to sing along to. Ocean deserves a spot in anyone's collection, and is a near must for any fan of space rock. Excellent.
