4 stars Between VANGELIS and the PETER BARDENS of Seen One Earth, the Lituanian genius behind the nick Stellardrone justifies his name. Don't search for drums. This album is purely made of electronics. You are in a spaceship and the greatness of the Cosmos fills your soul of melancholy. Remove the ethnic vocals and the choirs from OLDFIELD's Song Of Distant earth, this is what I mean.

We have to wait for Cepheid, track number 6 to hear some electronic drums in a track that reminds also to ALAN PARSONS Project.

Ok, stop comparing him with other artists. Eternity and Airglow are pure beauty, but my favorite track is Comet Halley. The tracks don't exceed in length and most of all, are not made of electronic noises only like you can find in the music of the prolific PHROZENLIGHT. There are chords and melodies. The near-absence of rhythm is due to the space mood. Ultra Deep Field brings you to the most remote abyss explored by the Hubble telescope, Astronaut voices in the reprise of Eternity The travel ends on M45, the Pleiads, the seven sisters. not the Motorway to Coventry. It's apity that it ends fading out, but in this case it gives an idea of "suspension". The space travel doesn't end, probably never ends. Only the album is gone, but there are 7 more on Bandcamp to enjoy.

One of the best artists that I've discovered in 2015. For dreaming.
