Eloy. You've either heard of them or you haven't. This was to be my first encounter with this band. Never really liked the album at first prefering to listen to my heavy metal albums, so it stayed on the back shelf for a while. I was first drawn towards the cover art work. Rodney Matthews was a hero of mine at the time and still is, producing some of the best Rock album covers to date with his own take on fantasy and Sci-Fi like only he can. It was only until I was starting to get fedup listening to the same old rock music over and over again I decided to give this Eloy album a spin one more time before I sold it on.

WOW....WEEE.... How on earth did I manage to over look this. I must have been listening with my fingers in my ears. It just took a hold on me and to this day has never let go. The music at that time (1984)was like nothing i've heard before. Some people have put their music in the same vain as Pink Floyd. Maybe so on previous albums, but this was different. Space rock as it's now tagged. Plently of anologue keyboards with overlaying guitar. This was the sound i've been looking for all these years. Music for your soul. Not at all soft nor rock 'n' roll, but somewhere in between and i mean tucked away behind your own pictures and imagination which the music provokes, ready to be discovered. Like all music I guess is a matter of personal taste and I just urge you to give this a try. Sounds even better now is on a re-mastered CD and even more with a good set of earphones. Absolute all time classic......of mine.

The 4th and final of the albums released in the UK by Heavy Metal Records Label,this came wrapped in a stunning Rodney Matthews sleeve,arguably one of his best..

Opening with the upbeat driving rock of 'Escape to the Heights' with its electronic synths & 'drums soundscape and treated vocals,it may not be to everyone's taste,you could argue its a little dated but it just works,it worked then and still grabs me now.

In what would the final album by this line up,the band covers all the bases, Heavy rock with gutteral guitar on the superb 'Nightriders',while the title track bounces out of the speakers with an almost dance beat(proggy disco ? ha ha).

'All Life Is One' is carried along on a menacing repetive bass/drum track while the albums highlight 'Follow The Light' is a wonderful contradiction of prog rock keyboards,strutting guitars and an insanely catchy chorus provided by the female back up singers,it shouldnt work but it does,quite superb

Metromania is my favourite Eloy album, and one of my favourite albums of all time. Eloy is a German band I discovered thanks to the much missed Alan Freeman's Saturday Rock Show on BBC Radio 1 (I think the track was Racing Shadows from "Destination". They have been described as the German Pink Floyd but they have their own distinctive sound. They are (were) not well known in the UK, and admittedly Frank Bornemann's vocals may be an acquired taste, along with on this album drum synths.

Metromania is a much overlooked neo-prog classic, with great keyboard and guitar interplay and as ever great lyrics and themes. Opener "Escape to the Heights" is a superb up-tempo number. Epic sounding "Follow the Light" has great atmosphere and supporting vocals. All 7 tracks hit the spot.

Prog classicists may prefer the older "Ocean" era Eloy sound, which has a spacier feel, but to my neo-prog / prog-metal ears the more direct later Eloy albums are preferred. Thoroughly recommended.

Once Eloy had shaken off their Hawkwind-wannabe mantle of the 1970s, their early 80s music took on a harder, keener, and highly original edge, whilst still remaining true to the rather ham-fisted nature of the lyrics. Electric prog with guitars, synths, girly choirs, the works.
