3 stars During about 10 years from 'their' debut, KREL had been a four- or five-piece space rock band. However, this brilliant debut CD with Hawkwindish spice on Krelian taste was, surprisingly, almost a solo work by Martin M. Were the other members unnecessary for KREL? ...We should feel so on listening to 'his' work.

Well suggest Martin M. could tighten a screw into the work by effort after Mr. Dibs, a talented bassist, leaving away. We can catch a glimpse of his strong intention to product the new 'space'. Sometimes like a blowin' wind, sometimes like a dramatic show, and sometimes like a ground rumbling - the time named Ad Astra by Martin goes through our heart from left to right. Usually space rock is dry, repetitive, flat and a bit boring (sorry!), but particularly about this Ad Astra, all 'negative' words mentioned before should not be used, in my humble opinion. On the spacey sounds in the space, Martin could drop spicy waves like comets and itsy-bitsy climax like a spaceship. Joking aside, he ornamented his work with colourful stardust by various instruments and dry flavour by his (not-so-good) voices - that can let me shout that how spicy and fragrant his interpretation of space rock should be.

It's too sad for me that this is one and only KREL's official studio work.
