3 stars This is one of the better albums that any of the good ol' progheads managed to do during the hostile 1980's. The overall feeling of the record is quite positive, levitating relaxed upon the streets of motorway city familiar from the late 1970's sci-fi illustrations. The line-up is dominated by veterans of the psychic wars, Dave Brock and Tim Blake. As a funny anecdote, Cream's Ginger Baker is playing the drums on this album too. The tracks are both clean rockers with spacey sounds and electronic audio landscapes. I guess you can get the ultimate experience by playing with your old Commodore 64 while listening to this ("Space Chase" etc.). Not as good as the dazed 1970's records, but still a good album, and it is also accessible for listeners of non-progressive music.
