4 stars A well-done nod to everyone who is into old 70s Rock, filled with everything from groovy SABBATH riffs to dreamy FLOYDian soundscapes. With standouts like "The Weirding" and "Ouroboros" ASTRA provides a 79-min long trip, which equals to a classy 2LP set. Do you like CRIMSOnian mellotrons, GENESIS-like quirky instrumental passages, ELOY's cosmic feel? You can find it all in ASTRA material! There's no Prog virtuosity or too many technical stuff, though they're good songwriters and instrumentalists, and the whole record is filled with such a nostalgic spirit without a single hint of pompous Retro-Prog attitude a-la THE FLOWER KINGS. Highly recommended!
