AllMusic Review by

This is a strong electronic release, inspired by the geographic anomolies on the surface of Mars that look like ruined cities, and it evokes an atmosphere of cosmology and alien grandeur in its dense waves and powerful rhythm currents. This entire album is played on MIDI guitar, which sounds like a regular keyboard synthesizer, while the music ranges from sensuous to super-sonic space pieces with several dynamic tracks, notably "Pyramids of Mars."
