Eloy - Silent Cries And Mighty Echoes (1979)

The seventh album from this German band.

...And they are really on the roll now. They have been on the roll for the last three albums. The music is spaced out krautrock with a lot of melody and ambience. The music is created with keyboards, guitars, bass and drums. The music is pretty symphonic. Ditto for the sound. This album cannot escape the comparisons with Pink Floyd, the Dark Side Of The Moon era. I much prefer Eloy and this album to any Pink Floyd albums though. OK, maybe not. They are pretty equal in my estimation. But I really like Eloy and rate them as perhaps the best ever band from Germany.

This album is a joy to behold throughout. My only gripe is the lack of a killer track. Besides of that, this album offers up three quarter of an hour with great krautrock. Enough said.
