4 stars Although I don't consider ELOY " Ocean " the best disk of this German band, I can understand the reason for which this work receives the largest note among the collaborators of P A and as well as it is what presents the largest number of ratings. In my way to see (or better of hearing) he is that that best represents the Psychedelic/Space Rock in that the band is classified. The first track "Poseidon's Creation" could not be better to open the disk, counting with 3 quite different parts, the first is dominated by a almost "martial" theme where opposing a hammond-organ melody (that slightly reminded me DEEP PURPLE) comes a well marked rhythm by the bass/drums that is torn by energetic guitar chords, this rhythm proceeds with a "bent" guitar solo with two distinct melodies that make way for the synthesizer that solemnly closes this first part, the music passes to a brief song meloly , that it disembogues in a part with a rhythm with more "swinging" where after a synthesizer soil appears in a dialogue between guitar and keyboard, " framed" by a coral closing the track in a magisterial way. The track "Incarnation of the Logos" begins with a suspense climate, where they stand out the FRANKBORNEMANN's voice and the space soundscape full of keyboards that they are unfolded in a melody that repeats in the main structure, however it presents in yours to elapse some very subtle variations, I still highlight in that strip the couple bass/drums, that check to the theme a lot of energy. the track 3 "Decay of Logos" is the one that presents more "heavy moments ", other interesting point in this track is the attendance of the guitar solo form opposing to the vocal while other guitar plays the rhythm. The track 4 "Atlantis' Agony Attn June 5th - 8498, 13 p.m. Gregorian Earthtime" presents a farewell climate, where I detach the duets between guitar and keyboards, however I consider the weakest of the disk. Although it considers a beautiful disk, I think he is not better than my favorite "Silent Create & Myght Echoes" My rate is 4 stars!!!
