'Eternity' to my ears shows a slight turn of direction compared to older albums from the duo Paul Haworth and Damon Newman. The mix of instrumental and vocal tracks is still there, but there is a more upbeat rock feel to the recordings. This is demonstrated by the opener "Signature Of Love" which although slightly retro with a prog rock feel has some excellent guitar work which will get your feet moving. "Eternal Spirits" is very similar although the words seem more New Age than Christian - "Eternal spirits find their way across the universe/Landing on different shores of lands unknown to earth." "Love Is Stronger Than Death" is heavily driven by guitar and is musically enjoyable, although it seems to suffer from sound quality problems. "The Unseen Realm" is a great foot-tapping rock track although Damon's vocals may not be to everybody's tastes and are slightly low in the mix. Throughout, the sound quality problems, which have been remarked on in previous album reviews, are sadly still evident.
