It's 2085, and humanity has left Earth in search of a new home among the stars, to prevent an otherwise inevitable extinction event.
At the centre of our solar system is a yellow dwarf we call the sun. There are other classifications of star, the largest and rarest of which is a red hypergiant, such as VY Canis Majoris. If this star were at the centre of our solar system, it's radius would engulf Jupiter and possibly even Saturn.
Our heroes are sailing past just such a star, awestruck by its size and beauty, on their way to finding our new home.
One of the defining synth-albums, at least for me. Great melodies, strong mid-tempos beats, excellent use of interesting samples. Not everything is pure gold and especially the collaborations are weaker in my eyes, but still, there is so much good here, that I now bought it twice as a hardcopy. I never did that before. gonzo009
