3 stars As many fellow reviewers have mentioned, the opening track Pulstar is absolutely gorgeous and also well known in Vangelis' discography.

It is indeed a great electronic prog track with some formidable percussion work (not to mention the synths of course). This could have been the start of a brilliant performance, but alas: counterparts are absent and "Pulstar" is quite an orphan (great) song in the midst of average music ("Main Sequence").

On the plus side, "Sword Of Orion" deserves a mention: this short and spacey track is quite remarkable but unfortunately, it lasts for less than two minutes. The long "Nucleogenesis" which is divided into two parts also has its ups (bombastic feel) and downs (pompous keys and some flat jazzy parts).

One will get the enigma of the title resolved during the title track which depicts some given facts about distances in space.

In all, this is not a bad album, but three stars seem to be the maximum rating I can provide.
