Customer Reviews

One of the finest album, from Eloy along with Ocean.
Fiston
De Labore Solis is a beautiful atmospheric song that features some lovely synth work and some beatiful harmonies and melodies.
Zeus Pendragon
Believe me, even if you are not into rock music, you may well find this a stunning album.

And that's true, given how bad in shape the prog rock scene was by 1979. We all know about punk and disco taking a toll on the genre, the punk rock scene accusing prog rock of being pretentious, while the disco scene basically asked everyone to party and have a good time (not to mention it generated a lot of money for the record companies), meaning there was no time for intellectual lyrics and extended compositions (and I don't mean some extended version of "Love to Love You, Baby", since it still conforms to disco rules) and tricky time signatures. Pretty much just about every prog rock band in 1979 had seen their best days behind them and many of them sounding really hopeless finding themselves during changing fads (since most weren't in to disco or punk, they simply became much more mainstream and pop-oriented, if they survived this long, that is).

One band that completely avoided that and totally ignored those changing fads was Eloy. In 1977 they recorded one of their finest albums ever, Ocean, and against all odds, became a huge seller in Germany outselling much better known acts as Genesis and Queen in Eloy's home country. And how do they follow up with that masterpiece? With Silent Cries and Mighty Echoes, which was recorded at the end of 1978 (November and December), and released in '79. I call it a miracle this album even came out, because the band simply ignored whatever fads were in their place (New Wave was becoming big in '79) and still recorded prog like it was still 1975 (and in fact, aside from the Yamaha CP-70 electric grand piano, most of the other keyboards used on this album were made before '75, so no polyphonic synths here like the Prophet V or Yamaha CS-80). And you know what? This album was another German smash hit!

Originally released in 1978, this was the band's ninth lp as this reissue was my very first exposure to the long-running German band. Eloy has one constant member that more or less -is- Eloy, and that is guitarist / vocalist Frank Bornemann. Eloy's music is top rate 'progressive art-rock', or as some critics put it, somewhere between Pink Floyd and Jethro Tull. Sounds like a good thing to me. Tracks that I thought showed the most promise were the fifteen-minute "The Apocalypse: Silent Cries..." and the somewhat laid back "De Labore Solis". Sort of noticed the soothing synth work by Detlev Schmidtchen, very nice! As far as I know, I believe the band may still exist in some form to this day. Should appeal to fans of Nektar, Grobschnitt, Focus, Gentle Giant and maybe even Curved Air.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This 1979 album opens with an incredibly spacey synth introduction (Astral Entrance) that would not have been out of place on the album Wish You Were Here (Pink Floyd, 1975). In fact, the combination of Gilmour-esque guitar playing, the wall of synthesizers, and the chord sequence sounds a little...well, TOO familiar. It's not a big deal for me though - I love both Pink Floyd and Eloy, and musicians are generally fond of quoting one another as a form of tribute.

However, once Master of Sensation kicks in with the punchy, trebly, bass of Klaus-Peter Matziol, the virtuosic drumming of Jurgen Rosenthal, and the heavy Germanic accent of vocalist/guitarist Frank Bornemann, it becomes clear that this is in fact an Eloy album. I know this has been stated a billion times before, but a lot of people don't like Frank's vocals, citing his thick accent as a major problem - I for one like his vocals quite a lot. In addition to Frank, there are some "soulful" female backup vocals by Brigitte Witt on a few tunes - in fact they don't sound unlike the vocal parts on Dark Side of the Moon (Pink Floyd, 1973). The lineup on this album is simply spectacular, and along with great keyboardist Detlev Schmidtchen and his spacey keyboard work (Arp synth, mini-moog, mellotron, and Hammond organ), generated the best music Eloy made in the 1970s (including the albums Dawn (1976) and Ocean (1977). Unfortunately, drummer Jurgen Rosenthal and keyboardist Detlev Schmidtchen left Eloy after this album, which is a pity - they really contributed a lot to the band.

The 6 tracks on the album range in length from the 3'03 Astral Entrance to the 14'55" mini epic The Apocalypse.

Unless you specifically came looking for this CD, you most likely won't have heard of ELOY, even though they've sold millions of LPs worldwide in a career spanning over 30 years. They are, without a doubt, the music industry's best kept secret. And this, their seventh studio LP released way back in 1979, is one of the best albums never to be listed in the "Top 10 Records of All-Time" halls of fame.
Musically, you have something that German audience's term as "Space Rock". A fusion of rock guitars, pomp keyboards and orchestral style harmonies, brilliantly counter-balanced here by Frank Borneman's plainative vocals. You'll think of Pink Floyd, classic YES, early Hawkwind, even Magnum and yet none of these can be really compared to the sound that ELOY have. They possess a rare uniqueness that transcends labeling. Believe me, even if you are not into rock music, you may well find this a stunning album. Certainly many of my friends over the years have been blown away by this LP.
So why is this such a great record?
"SLME" is quite simply a magnificent adventure in audio stimulation. Ranging from evocative and angelic vocals to truly histrionic guitar solos, it sounds as new and as exciting today as it did in 1979. From the stunning 1a) Astral Entrance, dreamily teasing you into a trance-like recognition of just how wonderful an electric guitar can sound, through to the haunting cries of the final track, the Mighty Echoes that reveal the final destination mankind is headed for, this album will leave you breathless with the realisation that you've just been listening to an unexpected masterpiece.
Buy this album. You won't be disappointed.
