Review by ZowieZiggy
PROG REVIEWER
2 stars The last studio album of the band in the nineties. After quite a long break (in terms of original studio albums).

I have been following the band for a very long time and I can quickly summarize that the seventies was the decade of the discovery and grandiose albums; the eighties were quite a good reinforcement of their work and rather good in terms of quality output.

But the nineties were way behind IMHHO. Lots of soundtracks and also average studio albums (with a few exceptions, but not many).

This album is just in line with their late decade production. Some very fine moments with the opener "Comet's Figure Head" which is one of the few to represent the "dreamy" music we all once liked ("Deep Space Cruiser" is another one).

But the global mood doesn't feature any extravaganza nor great passion as far as I'm concerned. A song as "Outland" holds too many "dance" feel to be convincing.

Unfortunately, several other songs featured this approach as well ("Pilots of the Etherbelt" or "Rim Of Schiaparelli", "Mars Mission Counter"). Just basic stuff, no more. But that's the case with most of the tracks from "Polaris".

I would have liked the band to finish the decade on a higher note, but this album is far from being a masterpiece, even if a few songs are decent: "Spiral Star Date" is another one as well as "Astrophobia" to some extent.

I hope that the naughties will be more interesting in terms of TD material. This "Mars Polaris" is just average: some good songs as I have outlined, but more music is on the average side and I can't go up to rate this work with three stars. Five out of ten, probably.

4 stars Strange, I didn't expect it, but this works. Rich, colorful, with a lot of variations (important fact), layering like an onion, possessing rhythm (weird, but I can get used to it) and getting ourselves towards the great concept of space-themed story. Of course unspoken, it would be, well, strange at least to have spoken TD. I have to wonder why this works, while so many other TD albums failed. And given that this is one of their worse (generally accepted) albums, I'm surprised that I like it so much.

4(+), so far 2 TD disappointments and 2 wins, that makes average 3 stars. Oh, bad track here is Astrophobia, about first half, or 2/3, because of drum'n'bass feeling (strange to hear it there), while a lot of songs here are good atmospheric pieces (oxygen atmosphere anyone ? let's make some pun fun with space).

3 stars Inspired by the launching of a Nasa space probe to Mars (the Mars Polar Lander),"Mars Polaris" is one of the best recent TD albums. Many might see this as a continuation,or updating, of the "Alpha Centauri" album of the early 70's and the two albums share the same vision of space and cosmos bu ... (read more)
