5 stars May the B3 be with you!

Do you love old 50's sci-fi movies? Do you love Hammond organs? Do you love fun & fresh (yet nostalgic) progressive music?

Eccentric Orbit with "Attack of the Martians" have captured so many sounds, feelings, ideas and atmospheres, on this project that it at once is familiar, yet unexplored, just like those wonderful sci-fi films of the 50's (silvery spaceships, weird landscapes, the blond in the tight fitting spacesuit and the guys with their little 32 caliber pistols!). This all instrumental is a great piece of work. The playing by all is top notch; some great grooves by drummer Mark Cella, driving bass work by Bill Noland (who composed all of the cuts), some very moody & atmospheric wind-controlled synths by Bill's bride Madeleine Noland and Derek Roebuck's very knowledgeable Hammond (and other keyboard) work. The title track, "Attack of the Martians" is my favorite, especially "Part 3: Martians Everywhere!" because whenever I hear it, darned if I don't see those Martians, everywhere!! Also included is a wonderful four-part suite called, "Forbidden Planet (Inspired by the classic 1950s sci-fi film). The set (clocking in at only 45 minutes) also includes "Star Power", "Sputnik" and "The Enemy of my Enemy".

Get this CD; you won't be disappointed!! And when you get it, don't forget to check out the front AND back covers, very funny! And as long as you're on the Internet, check out their website at

Looking forward to a lot more from this Massachusetts-based Progressive Rock band!
