And again the cosmic dice have fallen anew. There it is again, the band around leader, singer, composer and keyboarder Christian Nóvé, first in Gütersloh, meanwhile based in Leipzig. Already the first bars and sounds make it clear where we are going. The guitar roars like David Gilmour's on "Comfortably Numb" or "Sorrow". Spacige keyboard surfaces clearly refer to the seventies and remind at the same time of the German Eloy. The lyrics are a bit banal about the wonders of the universe ("Every open window gives the world the chance to see, what outer space has to offer"). If you don't have a problem with Nóvé's somewhat narrow-chested, not very flexible voice, you will enjoy a pathetic sound cosmos that operates with all too clear musical clichés every now and then, but which on the other hand can also satisfy friends of floydy spacer rock in principle. Because guitars, synths, sax and flutes as well as all kinds of quotes create pure space nostalgia. So everybody can decide for himself if he can ride on this "comet-highway".
