    For the first time the album almost trolled me up, until the last song. One of the best instrumentals I've heard. Well hidden.

        Skylab Also Available in full on The Sound Of Belgium 3 (4-CD compilation) The composer D. Lacksman is well known amongst New Beat / Euro Disco / Cosmic scene and he honed his electronic skills over the years. Heard Skylab at Cafe Del Mar in the mid 80's which on investigation was the album cut. Album was sourced in a bargain bin - lord knows how that DJ found it amongst the rest of the dross on the Album. Now a proper trainspotters track of course...

          So a lot of people are probably here because a fortunate Youtube algorithm introduced them to the song "Skylab". These folks may notice the collector value is indeed high, and assume that the rest of the album must contain similarly interesting content. I just wanted to stop by to offer a bit of a warning...

          So as not to beat around the bush, I'll just come out and say it: This album is almost unbearably shitty. Most of the material here could not possibly be interesting to anyone besides vintage analog synth nerds—and even they know there are far more enlightening records from the era that are very much worth time and investment. Even listeners who find enjoyment in the most toothless classical music would not be able to appreciate these bouncy children's lullabies with any seriousness. "Annoying" is usually a pretty subjective term (what's annoying to some people will oftentimes be pleasant to someone else) but in this case, it's completely objective. This music is purely, perversely bad. It's the type of thing that may well be playing in the torture chambers in Hell. The ghastly notion of this scenario is almost enough to consider living a life without sin just so you can ensure you're no where near the devil's speakers when the rapture finally does hit.

          That being said, the song "Skylab" is truly one of the most magnificent instrumentals I've ever heard. It is heavenly; completely out of this world. I will eagerly and gratefully permit those glorious gobs of synthesized space pudding to carry me into the ether for 14 minutes over and over til I die. But I will not under almost any circumstances allow the rest of this album to be played in my home. Cheers and warm wishes in these confusing times,

              'tchip tchip' (or 'cheep cheep' in english) formed the basis of what went on to become that euro-pop abomination 'the birdy song' by the tweets sometime in the early 1980's

                Skylab is the track, the rest of the album is kind of goofy.

                  I've got another different version of this, from Australia, on 'carinia' records called 'the electronic system vol III' with slightly different tracks and a nice lady on the cover : )
