3 stars "Eloy" is the self-titled debut full-length studio album by German psychadelic rock act Eloy. The album was released through Philips Records in 1971.

The music on the album is blues based rock with a psychadelic edge. Sometimes Iīm reminded of the early Jethro Tull albums and especially the voice and singing style of lead vocalist Erich Schriever points in that direction. The material is decent and there are enough adventurous ideas on the album to keep it entertaining throughout the playing time, but I wouldnīt call "Eloy" more than a solid release. Itīs not exactly groundbreaking either as many of the ideas on the album had already been explored by other groups a couple of years prior to the albumīs release. The jamming style rythmic approach, the lengthy solo sections, the "odd" experiment here and there and a basis in blues. Pretty familiar territory if you enjoy late sixties/early seventies rock with a psychadelic edge.

What speaks in favor of "Eloy" are the solid musicianship, the decent sound production and itīs entertainment value. A 3 star (60%) rating isnīt all wrong.
