Astral Projection is not mentioned for "Life On Mars" on cover but the track was released on Astral Projection - Dancing Galaxy.
It's suspected that The Mayan Collective, Interactive (4), Silent Sentinels, Iridium (6) are Avi and Lior as well but there is no conclusive evidence on the line-up of these groups.

This is an Astral Projection album guised under the compilation format. 5 out of 9 tracks are credited directly to A.P., the rest are credited to "unknown" artists with no mention of real name. The sound of those 4 tracks is totally A.P. sound again. Can it be more obvious ?

Astral Projection released the Another World album in the beginning of 1999, which BTW is my favourite album of the 4 they released before the millennium. Certainly they couldn't release 2 albums in such a short span so they released this as a compilation. But this compilation is nowhere as good as any of the 4 albums released so far back then. The first 2 tracks are the best tracks in my opinion and could have easily sat on any album released by them. The Oforia remix brings a darker sound to the usual cheery A.P. sound. Nice 'oforic' remix but nothing outwordly. The rest of the tracks however seem leftovers from previous material. The "Live" version of Power Gen, recorded "live somewhere in nowhere" has the crowd noise which is obviously simulated though I always fancied tracks with simulated live noise. A mention goes also about the long closing ender, 12,000 Suns. This is a sort of ambient track similar in style to "Ambient Galaxy", a track which I find too long and repetitive. 12,000 Suns is a bit more varied though the usual A.P. formula is still there.

At this point it's needless to say that this release is nothing essential though A.P. fans should have this. But with a total duration of 80 minutes you feel you have value for what you paid.
