Eloy, nothing more to say
Utku Diril | Santa Clara, CA United States | 02/11/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This, like all other Eloy albums is great. It is actually kind of a "new age" style progressive rock album. Flute is used in this album and it fits great. Also the short guitar solo at the end of the song "fire and ice" is one of the best solos of Bornemann I have heard. It is really great. And one should keep in mind that every new time you play the album from the start to end, you realize some new details and you start to like the album more. If you like Eloy you will like this album."
Worthwhile effort

"This is the second album after Frank Bornemann reformed the band in 1986. Four years after Ra Frank decided to work again with a drummer, quite a few guitar players and some bassplayers. Plus female vocalists and a flute player. A wise decision since the programmed drumming and synth bass are not quite suited to Eloy's music.

Ra and Destination represent a reborn for Eloy. But it seems it was a difficul one since the classical sound of Eloy is not as present as it should be in this couple of albums.

This doesn't mean this is a boring album, far from it!!! The overall sound is heavier than other Eloy albums. In fact this is Eloy's heaviest record ever. Songs like Call of the Wild, Prisoner in Mind and Silent Revolution lean heavily towards a heavy sound where Bornemann's guitar work really shines and keyboards taking on a supporting role.

Racing Shadows sees bassist Klaus Peter Matziol coming back to play an oustanding performance. This song is the closest to a classical Eloy sound. Many changes, heavy guitar playing and some good synth work.

Title track Destination sees the band experimenting a little with a programmed rhythm in the verses and a beautiful chorus. It also features a Jethro Tull like flute solo.

Fire and Ice is a very intense and strong track, though somewhat simple. It features a beautiful chorus too with a nice synth melody and an astonishing guitar solo at the end while Eclipse of Mankind delivers the most simple performance of the whole album.

The best track in the album is the last one, Jeanne d'Arc. The song begins with guitar and keyboards playing a beautiful and sorrowful tune. Frank sings very emotionally and when the whole band kicks in is accompanied by a whole chorus. The song has a definite epic quality to it. The chorus is absolutely fantastic with Frank's singing taking a leading role with his high pitched falsetto.

Destination sees Eloy exploring new territory and though it can hardly be described as a classic Eloy album, it is still a very good record. The production and the mixing are quite good, Frank's vocals are outstanding throughout (in fact, this is Eloy strongest album in vocal terms) and he delivers some outstanding performances. The songs are quite strong as a whole and though they are more "poppy" a lot of energy and feeling is delivered in each one of them.
