A pleasure to my ears! This is a record I use to calibrate my stereo: truly an audio masterpiece. I prefer the track listing on the special edition CD; but I own three different copies with three different track listings and they all do the job. Alpha have maybe never quite hit these heights since, but they've continued to produce excellent work, even with a few personnel changes. Speaking of which, how much do I miss Martin Barnard!

After their disappointing <I>The Impossible Thrill</I> album, Alpha returns to the sound that made <I>Come From Heaven</I> a classic. <I>Stargazing</I> is a return to form, with tight song structures and blissful production values. Their favorite three vocalists return, this time joined by newcomer Kelvin Swaybe, who adds a soulful timbre to “Elvis.” While all the vocal tracks are outstanding, the instrumental tracks aren’t as polished as they were on <I>The Impossible Thrill</I>. But that’s not necessarily surprising; “Horseshit” was one of the very first tracks that Alpha released (under the name Ariel). As always, Wendy Stubbs’ vocals are the highlights: “Silver Light” is a slowburning torch song for evenings by the fireplace; “Once Round Town” is for skipping hand-in-hand through the park. Helen White also performs beautifully for “Blue Autumn,” a post-breakup song if there ever was one. <I>Stargazing</I> will have dreamy-eyed romantics staring up into the heavens for years to come.
