Very strong album, one of the best drexciyan clones, dancefloor oriented. A real discovery and a real deal. ROCKED ME HARD

Well than let's send the vinyl double pack too:)!!
Wicked stuff definitely very cool shit from Cisco so let's see how the UFO-s rock to it!:) The name giving track "Light Years Away" is a hugely superb driving electro piece. One of my heavy weight favorite tracks lately. Pounding, fast, mind blowing dancefloor manipulation to the max with great futuristic sounds and robot lyrics "light-years-away light-ye-ars-a-way"... Cisco is just geniously insane in a very cool and likeable way. If you wanna here the song in action just how much does it work in a mix listen to Dave Clarke World Service2 -s electro mix. Even in very strong song selection stands out a lot being one of the coolest bit. And you know that's funny even Anthony Rother's genious electro mind couldn't defeat it. Very very cool shit indeed!

The cover design on this release is interesting imo.
As you can see, there's a naked man & woman on the cover.

This drawing comes from a gold plated aluminum plate sent of in outer space back in 1972 with the Pioneer 10.
Pioneer 10 was launched to explore the possibility of other life in space.
It was launched in the direction of Mars & then continued his path to Jupiter.
Jupiter's orbit gave this device a slingshot direction Uranus & from there on it was shot out of our solar system.
It will continue to travel for 2.000.000 years before reaching the Aldebaran star en it will take
years before even reaching another planetary system.
This plate also contains an etching of our solar system in a code.
The clues etched in this plate should explain to a possible superior race where the Pioneer 10 comes from and that it's inhabited by mankind.
Dr. Carl Sagan coded the message & his wife drew the naked man & woman on this plate.

So what Cisco did by naming this Album 'Light Years away' is pointing out that it could take years for another possible civilization to learn about earth & mankind.
The search continues.

Wow, I can't remember the last time buying an electronica CD clocking under 40 minutes! Anyway, it's nice to hear the Advent return to their trademark electro sound. This CD sounds like Aux 88 on red bull. The first track is loud, fast and mesmerizing. Songs could use more lyrics. After hearing "Light years away" repeated over and over you start to get the feeling that the end of the song may be light years away! But overall a very cool old school electro sounding release. Detroit heads will dig this.
