"Ode to Brother Horn" is a great new age/progressive album from Austrian musician Eloah fueled by poetic lyrics and excellent guitar and piano work. This is an inspired album, a grouping of songs from the early '90s that Eloah presented to his then-mentor Jörg Horner (Brother Horn) whose memory this album is dedicated to. Eloah's arrangements are truly exceptional, ranging from new age tracks with flute and saxophone to beautiful piano ballads to outstanding acoustic and electric rock compositions to riff-driven hard rock. Eloah's vocal performance has variety to it, but it is ever-haunting, whether he sings in his natural deep bass or in a quiet near-whisper. "Ode to Brother Horn" is well-produced, and the entire album sounds clean and professional. "Paradise Lost" features some great acoustic work, a nice drum beat, and a chilling vocal performance. "You Have Never Been Mine" has a great arrangement that begins with a nice acoustic guitar and drum progression, and is then matched by electric guitar and piano. "The Human Legacy" has a more progressive hard rock sound with heavy guitar riffs, a nice beat, and haunting vocals. Eloah has put together an album that would make Brother Horn proud, filled with skillful arrangements and poetic lyrics. Fans of new age and progressive rock should definitely pick this one up.
