To Terraform, Or Not To Be

 

"The Stars Are Suns" is an appealing mixture of hardcore and space jazz/rock. It's actually an amalgam of many different styles and influences.
 

Call it cosmic deconstructivism. It is cool and deadly, and the self-produced CD comes with a booklet with lyrics and graphics.


At times, it seems that indistinct vocals doesn't match up to the musicianship.  

That may be because that album in its scratchy and dissonant, asymmetrical melodics flashes brilliantly and then recedes like the sun moving behind clouds and then into the open.  The human voice just can't keep pace.
