5 stars Simply fantastic !

Eloy is very interesting band regarding the rugarly changing their sound scape by members. After the power and the passion the band was almost vanish from music history. Frank Bornemann was the only person left behind with 4 albums. Ocean is the second album of brilliant line-up and unfortunately they made only 3 studio albums together.

Ocean is considered one of the top albums of the space rock with couple of Pink Floyd's album. Regarding to sound this is an accurate comparison, but Eloy uses heavy keyboard laced instrumental sections over drive guitars, a prominent and driving bass (which is fastastic).

"Poseidon Creation" is the great opener, where the band's unique sound is more highlighted. Outstanding and heavy riff mixed with floating moods. Klaus Matziol is fantastic bass player which he made genious inputs this song.

"Incarnation Of Logos" has very deep intros, dark atmosphere...Is there someone who is asking whats the Psychedelic Space rock? the answer is this song.

"Decay Of Logos" is another great song...especially Detlev's and Jurgen's performances are so good... the song has very pretty catchy riff with general surrounding.

"Atlantis Agony" is considered as Eloy's highest point of their carrer, totally agree...After the mysterious intro, groovy bass and drums kick in... the song has lots of memorable parts that will definitely be remembered in many years.
