3 stars Because Eloy is one of my first bands that i descovered in prog and soon one of my fav, i deicided to write another review about this great band from '70. Power and the passion is very good, soft ambient spacey progressive rock album, with some heavy symphonic pieces. This album marks an era in the band's career where they decided to record a more sophisticated brand of spacy prog, then on previous albums, and they succeded in every way. With this one 'till Time to run they develop outstanding albums, with catchy and long keys parts so they reached a high level in prog, just my opinion. So, Eloy are probably Germany's foremost prog band and this shows why. It's a concept album about time travelling with sometime slow rythm, the keyboards are rather floating, mostly consisting in organ, piano, clavinet and mellotron, the guitar is rather aggresive, but good, and the solos are fantastic like on Jouney Into 1358, super track. In the end i can only add that is a 3 star album, from this one they start to get on the top of prog.
