    It’s been over a decade since I found this, along with multiple other Eloy LPs in a single haul. Obviously someone’s collection. Anyway, wow.

    I totally agree with the stunning SQ reviews.

      This album sounds incredible stunning. I can’t imagine how a remaster could be better than this first press. Simply awesome!!!

        Got a copy quite cheap and I needed to comment about the sound quality, I see I'm not alone. I didn't know if I was facing a G+ record or what, got a VG/VG+ and the sound is just stunning. I have many NM and modern records that sound way worse than this.

          I have nothing to add to the sound quality, it is fabulous.
          The music is world stage, there is an instrumental part wher one may wish, Parsons had suffled the knobs, it is a true match for Pink Floyd in some parts.
          Yes indeed, I am an Eloy fan, but that doesn't mean I cannot add that the singers strained voice and his strong German accent are a downer in a way. Every farkng time.

            I concur with the other comments: Great sounding pressing. Well worth seeking out!

              The sound is top. Amazing, just amazing... I have this first pressing in NM condition, and I absolutely love it.
