4 stars One would think that with all of the prog rock album collecting I did in the seventies, that I would have more than this one album by Eloy. Well, the fact is, this was the only one I ever found, and since I started purchasing CDs from the Internet, they just haven't been a priority. Maybe they should be.

This album always reminded be of Jethro Tull, both in the musical style and Frank Bornemann's voice. No matter, this is still an exciting album of seventies symphonic prog. Land Of No Body is the epic piece, clocking in at over seventeen minutes. It ranges from the ominous, sort of psychedelic intro, to the rocking (sounds like The Turtles' Happy Together outro. But still very nice.

Inside is the hardest rocking song on the album, almost like the metal songs of 1975. Future City again calls up vintage Tull, with very Ian Anderson-like vocals over acoustic guitar, alternating with harder segments. The only not quite up to par song is Up And Down, almost pure psychedelic, with an overdramatic spoken segment over Pink Floyd- like keys and drums.

If more of their early album are like this, I might go find them.

Evolver | 4/5 |
