4 stars Exactly what you think.

With a name like that you could assume 1) They like Rush enough to endorse their band's name 2) They like outer space stuff from the 50's (such as Mars Attack!) 3) It could be trippy. There you go.

I was lucky enough to listen to it and it didn't took me long to get hooked. They rock. I mean R-O-C-K. They riff like few and they do it a lot. From Queen to Rush and Maiden, they blistered my ears for half an hour majestic power chords, 2112 inspired keyboards, arpeggios from Brian May or Angus Young and deafening drums seriously competing with the best around.

You do feel the space travelling very well in a retro way and not the Ayreon way. Fine by me. They prove you do not need high-tech gear to create a good atmosphere. Great vocals too, not to shabby for a self produced band. I frankly think this band has a chance to score big if they can get a bigger audience. You need to try this band, you really have your money's worth. Maybe a new classic band to emerge? Let's hope so!

If you like ballzy riffs, heavy old school drumming and lots of wind in your hair you will drool over this.

My respect to this impressive record. Keep'em coming boys.
