2 stars I wasn't exactly sure what to expect from something called like that. Some kind of Dark Space Prog. And from the first seconds of quite monotonous (but haunting nevertheless) song Astralized, we know what this will be about.

After all, Space is dark place, isn't it ?

Monotonous, hypnotic riff remains in these songs. What is the most interesting for Avant lovers, well, probably nerve scratching saxophone which really shines in some songs (needed spicing of them). Title suite Earth Divided by Zero starts like very Hard Rock riff with some keyboards joining later. It creates haunting combination (and saxophone kicks in soon afterwards), because number of instruments used on this album grants either big weird chaos, or new horizons of music (it's up to you and your likings).

Oriental like rhythms are available when noisy music calms down (so you can hear them) and this all sounds very interesting, only that I cannot find it as enjoyable as I would like. Because this album takes strong personality (or special persona with special tastes) to like it.

3(-), maybe in future.

EDIT: Maybe shot (not).
