Eloy - Ocean 12" Vinyl LP

  Ocean is the sixth official full-length album by the German Prog Rock / Krautrock band ELOY, it was released in 1977.

  To describe Eloy's Ocean on strictly musical terms (versus lyrical), one must use the words atmospheric, densely arranged, pulsing. In parts, languid keyboard phrases wend their way behind the beat of drums and bass. In some ways, Eloy would have been better served as strictly an instrumental band - which isn't to suggest that they have a bad vocalist in Frank Bornemann. Yes, his heavily accented English is nasally, but given the length of their career, it has't hurt any. And as mentioned in other reviews here, I've encountered far worse vocalists.
