Everything is so mind stimulating and you can only benefit from such a variety so brilliantly interpreted.

Progressive Rock is supposed to be a genre for open-minded listeners but if there's a band who can really put your open-mindedness to the test, that's Austrian New Age Prog heroes Eloah. With a name that is basically the Hebrew name for God, this group possesses such an artistic boldness that even Frank Zappa or Captain Beefheart would be impressed.

At times, you can clearly listen to some of the influences from these two crazy geniuses, for example in the introductive song 'Planet Zargo', a spaced-out Disco Metal trip which also owes a lot to David Bowie, that will lead you to an unpredictable whirlpool of sounds and sonic galaxies. Synthesizers and sequencers additions just do the rest but if they weren't enough, there would always be the Bossa Nova of 'Batida De Coracao' and 'Primavera' to keep your listening promptly stimulated.

The sonic trip goes through a dark descent in 'Wind Through A Key Hole (Sands Of Time)', which finely links Type O'Negative to Moonspell and then it even accommodates a freestyle Rap incursion near the end. 'Dimanche Oublie', instead, sounds like a tragic spoken narration ala Tom Waits but fortunately 'Grace' uplifts the spirit with those allusions to early Jefferson Airplane, thanks to angelic female vocals by Lila Herderberg. So does 'Soundless Breath', which has got that airy and metaphysical Byrds-like West Coast feel as well, due to the New Age environment which also the 1960's band shared.

You can even enjoy the Party Rock/Acid Jazz of 'Sons Of Light' and then, four minutes later, the learned delirium of 'Mobius'. At the end of the album there's also space for a Neue Deutsche Härte digression ('The Glint'), a Metal subgenre, made worldwide famous by German band Rammstein, which, being them from Austria, is quite geographically familiar and culturally comfortable for Eloah.

In conclusion, there's nothing to complain with an album like this because basically there's no lame, boring or shallow moment here. Everything is so mind stimulating and you can only benefit from such a variety so brilliantly interpreted. You just have to make the effort to let your auditory receptivity loose.
