Album Review

This is the debut recording from one of Germany's most accomplished progressive rock bands. The band was originally co-led by vocalist Erich Schriever and guitarist Frank Bornemann, and the two differed on musical direction, which is evident here. The band was essentially a hard rock act at this time with a sound similar to Black Sabbath and Atomic Rooster. Although their technical abilities were not yet fully developed, it does have an intrinsic quality. "Today," in particular, demonstrates the band's ability to create catchy rock songs. While Eloy would move in a more progressive direction which would yield more consistent results, they would never sound as honest and vulnerable as they do here. Humble beginnings for one of progressive rock's most underrated bands. [The album was reissued in 2008 with the addition of three bonus tracks.]
