Another Classic
Zeus Pendragon | 02/01/2006

"This is the second part of an intended double album. The first one Planets was released the year before and though Time to Turn is not as consistent as that album it is still excellent.

Through a Somber Galaxy is an instant Eloy classic. Nice synth work, beautiful melodies and harmonies, pumping bass playing, excellent guitar solos, many changes in tempo and mood and a big explosion to finish the song. Great!!!

Behind the Walls of imagination features a beautiful introduction to give way to some very intricate rhythm section. There is another excellent guitar work way towards the end.

Time to Turn is quite a simple song with some Pink Floyd references. It features a female chorus and yet another solid guitar solo. However, the tempo of the song is maintained until the song finishes, so it ends up being a bit monotonous.

Magic Mirrors is a a very subdued song and quite simple too. there is some nice guitar and synth work in here. But what really makes the song special is the synth melody in the chorus and at the end of the song. One of the most beautiful melodies created by Eloy and that's saying a lot!!!

End of an Odyssey clocks around 10 minutes. The first part is a long synth solo over pumping percussion. The second part is more classic Eloy in structure. Mid-tempo allowing Frank to sing all the lyrics. The last section features some nice work on synth and guitar and a very good bassline.

The Flash is the most experimental track of the whole record. Very spacey, almost electronic like song. It features, however, some very heavy guitar riffs and an awesome bassline.

Say, is it Really True? is an acoustic number. Beautiful vocal lines shine in this song. There is also a nice synth melody that takes over in the choruses and in the end of the song.

Though the balance of the material is not as solid as that on Planets it still keeps the magnificient atmosphere with compositions that are excellent, at least."
Buy it if you are Eloy fan

"This is pretty good album, I would say more "song oriented". Although, my favorite Eloy's are "Ocean" and "Inside". They seem to be more progressive than this one."
Familiar expectations

"This album concludes the story that started on the album "Planets" (1981). Maybe not the same intensity as its predecessor,but still unmistakebly Eloy! The overall production has got a sharper sound than usual, but don't let that put anyone off buying it. Their first drummer, Fritz Randow returned for this album and my personal highlights of this album will have to be "Through A Somber Galaxy", "Behind The Walls Of Imagination" and "End Of An Odyssey". This album sits nicely between "Planets" and "Performance". Typical Eloy. Need I say more?"
