With FloatingEloy hit their first artistic peak. The German group's brand of hard rock meets prog rock gelled beautifully for this set of five songs.

The structural shortcomings of the longest track from the previous album are now things of the past: "The Light From Deep Darkness" is a minute roller coaster. The opening title track gets very close to early Santanathanks to a spirited drum track and Manfred Wieczorke 's organ work, closer this time to Plastic Girl - Eloy - Floating Rollie than Jon Lord Deep Purple.

But the album's highlight resides in the infectiously heavy riff of "Castle in the Air," maybe the most recognizable sound bit in Eloy 's first three albums. New bassist Luitjen Janssen gives the song a tremendous momentum.

The lyrics to "Plastic Girl" are more down to earth and relate to Frank Zappa 's "Plastic People" than the group's growing interest in metaphysics and space-age references.

The album is capped by "Madhouse," a frantic rocker that shows how Bornemann has integrated the influence of Jethro Tull in his music. Fans of Eloy 's concept albums DawnOceanPlanets have a tendency to look snobbishly at the first three LPs, but Floating stands as a great rock achievement, no matter what the group will record Career Opportunities - The Clash - The Clash. The music did not have to adapt to a plot and is not drenched in synthesizers.

10 Thoughts to “ Plastic Girl - Eloy - Floating ”

  1. Shakajinn
    Eloy Floating Plastic Girl She lives in a plastic, plastic world She talks in plastic, plastic words I must have been wrong, when I thought she was different 'cause her lips and her eyes seemed like a sea of delight She whispered in my ears words of boundless feelings I was bewitched and I knew we could spend the night together.

    Floating is by no means a classic album, but the three lengthy tracks have just enough going for them to make this an album easy to lose yourself in. Some days I .
  3. Malagore
    Floating is simply the best album since the beginning. Only five tracks leaded by Randow and organist Manfred Wieczorke, with "Plastic Girl" and "Castle in The Air" being a kind of touchstones. Today, a remaster edition de-luxe increases the myth around it.
  4. Jugar
    "Plastic Girl" is the earliest Eloy song to feature synth, Manfred Wieczorke plays Mini Moog here, but is not credited (because he apparently just bought the synth and used it just almost as the album was finished). Floating was the first Eloy album I ever bought and I was so impressed with it that I started to dive in to their catalog.

    "Plastic Girl" is the first ELOY song to feature some synthesizer, some Moog and that's it. Wieczorke wasn't even credited to playing synths on this album, as the Moog was a new purchase just as the recording of the album was being wrapped up, making "Plastic Girl" the final recording session (although of course, not the last song on the album)/5(29).

    Jan 01,  · I started off with "Floating" after reading the various reviews, and the fact it was the earliest album I thought I might like; I wasn't disappointed! If you are looking for music from a bygone era, then Eloy is a great place to land. The one thing I would caution though is that "Floating" is different from their later albums/5(13).
