The "LOVE" release received rave reviews from Listen.com, Visions Magazine and Kuelle Magazine.
"If you're ready to go into a state of meditative bliss, Elu can take you there. Quiet, nearly subliminal voices soothe your mind while layers of ambient synthesizer massage your senses."
"Love" - Visions Magazine, Steven Hewitt,July 2000:
Sinuous, sultry and seductive is the debut release by Jeffrey Mettling also known as Elu (pronounced ae-loo). Self produced and promoted on his mp3.com site, Elu has engineered a very remarkable CD entitled L.O.V.E.
My favorite tracks on L.O.V.E. are "Secrets", "Love (To Be As One)", the very Enigma-like "Lover's Dance," "De Amo", and "Synergy". My pick for the best track on the CD is the very haunting and sensual "Twilight".
