1 stars Codename Eloy

As other reviewers have pointed out, this is not really an Eloy album proper despite carrying that name. This is an almost completely instrumental movie soundtrack to an obscure film and the line-up is severely truncated. Frank Bornemann is not even here and hence none of his vocals and guitars that otherwise define the Eloy sound. This music has indeed very little to do with Eloy as we know them or with Prog of any kind for that matter. What we have here is much more towards pure electronic music than to the usual hard edged, spacy Prog Rock of Eloy's other albums. I am often reminded of Larry Fast's Synergy while hearing these largely electronic tunes. As such, they are decent if unoffensive. The sole exception is Queen Of Rock 'n' Roll, an awful Rock 'n' Roll number that is totally out of place on this album. This is the only track that features vocals.

I would say that this album is strictly for hard core Eloy fans and completionists
