This album to me is the pinnacle of Klaatu's work. None of the other albums achieve what this one does. I really wish Klaatu had stuck more to this kind of material and arrangement. "We're Off You Know" is a wonderful art rock tune that makes brilliant use of brass and woodwinds. "Madman" is a more straightforward hard rock song and "Around The Universe In Eighty Days" is a space rock/art rock song with some interesting sounds, though it occasionally reminds me of Spinal Tap. "Long Live Politzania" closes the first side of the record and sets the background for what follows on the other side. Politzania is a cautionary tale about a civilization that destroyed itself. Side Two of the album is a concept about the "Loneliest Of All Creatures In The Universe". He is the sole survivor of Politzania, and his task is to man the lighthouse that warns ships to steer clear of the ruins of his planet. The orchestral art rock/symphonic prog on this side of the record is simply sublime. It is a pity that Klaatu did not explore this direction further, and instead became more pop-oriented on their subsequent albums.

Just posted this. Thought it would get added to the "Releases" section of the album. But I see that it posted it as a new item. Does anyone know if there is a way to get it over to the releases section? Or do I have to retype everyting?
