4 stars Absolute Elsewhere was just formed to put music behind the story written by Eric von Däniken, a Swiss author known for his claims about extraterrestrial influences on early human presence on earth (his ideas are mostly rejected by scientists and academics ...but who cares...the story behind the facts was good !).

The music had to be in such context, and sometimes melodies with deep «background sentiments» and fewer notes is much more inherent to similar writings than fast «riffs».

From my view, musicians on this album were of great talent. Melodies are appropriated and well played. I discovered (at that time) Phillippe Saatchi, on electric guitar, who played really nice lines. Saatchi was a jazz guitarist and I can assure you his play was not that easy as it could looks at first.

Of course the presence of Bill Bruford add a special tempo and mood to this album, but overall it still is a really nice piece of «vinyl» to keep in a collection.
