After many listens this album still moves me and it is incredible how well Wansel executed the core concept of the title, from fun and funky to just plain touching and romantic, always with space travel in mind. Of course there are a few great samples and lots of funk, but just listen to the honesty of Together Once Again, about lovers divided by the distance of Earth and Mars, to get a feel for just how well the theme informed the tracks. They dont make them like this anymore.

"Theme From The Planets" is an absolute funk / disco-y masterpiece. Tip: Play it at 45 and its really good to dance to
