3 stars Synthesizer and keyboards based album, with the melodies mostly carried by flute and some guitar, but very understated so they don't interfere with the monotonuos voyage that make up the bulk of the material. Very spacy atmospherics that is enjoyed better in the dark than during daylight.

The fisrt song is just a electronic waves of music, without many melodie or rhythm, the second continous that style for the first phase, but slowely more structure becomes apparent, and with the drums coming into play it turns into a wonderfull energetic experience, wonderfull song. The final song is the side long elsectronic epic, continuing to explore the vastness of space, with high timbre, but slow pace.

Alpha Centauri is not an easy album to digest, so it will take some dedication and willingness from the listener, so don't expect to like it on first spin, but very enjoyable, once you get to know the music.

recommended for people who like space and electronic cosmic music.

Peace Out
