4.0 out of 5 stars Yngwie Returns With An Album Full Of Great Songs November 27, 2000
Format:Audio CD
By 1990, everybody knew the name Yngwie J. Malmsteen and the history of cult shred albums he had released. Coming off the huge commercial success of 1988's ODYSSEY, Yngwie returned to that same pop metal vein to craft quite possibly his best album since MARCHING OUT. Sadly, 1990's ECLIPSE would mark the beginning of the end for Yngwie in the U.S. as the same folks who helped him rise to the status of guitar god, quickly scrambled to crucify his style as repetitive, unemotional and derivitive.
The band had been stripped down and rebuilt with the incredible Goran Edman on vocals(Yngwie's best vocalist up to this point) Mats Olausson on keyboards (not as good as Jens but still a top notch player) Svante Henrysson on bass and Michael Von Knorring behind the drums. The guitar tone shines here as this album is an improvement over the others up to this point in production values (although the raw sound of the first two albums greatly added to the vibe of those early records). Edman's silky cool voice shines on cuts like the bluesy rock of "Bedroom Eyes",the epic ballad "Save Our Love"(one of Yngwie's last great ballads), the Bach'n'Roll of "Motherless Child" and "Judas" and we get one great, albeit short, instrumental, the title cut, "Eclipse". But the standout track here is the album opener "Making Love" with it's way over-the-top guitar solo and super sexy opening riff, we get a true indication of Yngwie's mood on here: polished, radio ready, and still prepared to destroy any and every other guitar player who thought he could try and step on Yngwie's toes! For all out drama, speed, and technique in a dark rock context, nobody could. Yngwie had mastered his art and was living the life of an international rock guitar icon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great! June 10, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I don't understand why so many people have bashed this album. The songs are well-crafted, and the vocals of Goran Edman are terrific (he's Yngwie's best vocalist). Sure, there's some pop here, but so what? There are enough guitar heroics here to satisy most axe freaks. To all of you "Eclipse" bashers, geez...lay off, will ya? This is good stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Swedish Guitar God's contribution in 1990 June 22, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The best heavy metal recordings are able to strike the perfect balance between the expressive complexity of progressive rock and listener-friendliness and this release achieved that result. This is a multidimensional album with individually multidimensional songs that are all very heavy.

Starting with "Making Love," a rock-steady track that takes a break to explode into Malmsteen's neo-classical heavy metal stylings on his trusty Fender Strat before rejoining the main progression for a memorable close. Then Yngwie switches from his Beethoven influence to his Hendrix influence with "Bedroom Eyes" that starts with a quick hammer-E on the D string, some wah pedal in the solo and an all-around funky feel on this rock steady track. We then take it down a notch with "Save Our Love," giving us one of the most beautiful solos on the entire record and some excellent acoustic work in the intro. Just as we are feeling serene, Yngwie turns on the power with Motherless Child which simply kills with its lightning solo that takes several turns. Devil in Disguise is song with a darker tone that also begins with acoustic overdubs.

Judas takes us back to that hard, rock-steady feel from "Making Love" along with "What do you Want." "Demon Driver" feels more like classic Yngwie without feeling overly long and being just a guitar solo from beginning to end. "Faultline" gives us a break from the speed with an enjoyable melody, and we're taken on one last fast track with "See You In Hell (Don't Be Late)" which is also able to avoid being just one very long guitar solo and super long. In fact, even the only instrumental on this album (a rarity for Malmsteen) is of a sane length, is not just one great big long guitar solo, but manages to take many different turns.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Vocals by Goran Edman-2003 August 10th August 10, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
you may also hear goran edman sing on other bands such as street talk, kharma and glory. this cd titled eclipse is pretty good, songs such as [making love, judas, and faultline] for example are songs with soul. i believe that he has been the best vocalist for rising force. be sure to check out this cd titled eclipse, you won't regret it.
other recommendations-fire and ice by yngwie malmsteen is a good cd and goran edman sings vocals on that cd too.
goran edman is the best vocalist out there right now(in 2003). once again, making love which is sung by goran edman on the eclipse cd is excellent. it really is a beautiful song-for a person who is from the european anglo cycle(white guy) he sure has alot of feeling/soul ability. goran edman is from the country of sweden.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Yngwie! May 22, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I am a die-hard Yngwie fan and own the majority of his albums, even those from Steeler and Alcatrazz. Over and over again I have heard Yngwie fans (and even Yngwie himself) put down his albums Eclipse and Odyssey because they are "too commercial". I'm so tired of hearing that. Who cares if they are a little more commercial??? It certainly doesn't diminish the talent that this man has! There is some incredible guitar work here! I like his less commercial albums too, but to be quite honest with you, Eclipse and Odyssey are the two albums that I listen to most frequently and those are the tunes that stick in my head when I'm not listening to any music at all! Yes, this is a more commercial album and other guitar-shredders may not appreciate it as much as some of Yngwie's other albums, but for those individuals who are not musicians themselves and/or those that are not avid guitar [people], I think that Eclipse and Odyssey are the two best albums for them to buy to be introduced to Yngwie. Once he captures you with these two albums and you get an appreciation for the talent displayed on them, you'll want to own everything that he does. Yngwie is a phenominally talented musician and there is a lot of great guitar work on this CD. While I enjoy all of the songs, my absolute favorite is "Making Love". The guitar solo is awesome on this one! Sends chills up your spine! And I have to agree with everyone else, that the lead singer, Goran Edmund is definitely the best Yngwie has ever teamed up with. While others have stated that this is not "technically" one of Yngwie's best CD's, I personally feel that it is awesome!

5.0 out of 5 stars Yngwie himself, called "Eclipse" one of his best. Enough said.
There are many virtuoso guitarists out there, however only a handful of them can write tunes hooky enough to grab the interest of a non-guitarist. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Great playing all round, but little meat on the bone.
This album was a change of direction for Malmsteen. With a simplified, less metal and less gothic bent than many of his earlier albums it was a serious play for generic hard rock... Read more
