AllMusic Review by

Crumbacher's second album features its biggest hit on CCM radio, "Interstellar Satellite." It also tempers its Europop impersonation with more influence from American eighties pop (although the big hairdos of its band members on the album cover use just as much hairspray as A-ha or Wham). The songs are catchy enough, although Dawn Wisner-Johnson's sugary background vocals get tiresome -- she echoes almost every line after the lead singer. The cover design is an inspired touch: it's a movie poster for a faux sci-fi flick entitled Escape From the Fallen Planet!, playing on the theological concept of mankind's fall from Eden.
