Space Experience blasts off with an other-worldly version of Carole King’s I Feel The Earth Move.
From there we travel on this electronic masterpiece taking in a sublime Rocket Man and a brooding Star Trek.
The funk quotient reaches maximum levels with a frenzied Jesus Christ Superstar.
Keating has a number of his own compositions vying for pole position - strongest being The Unknown Planet.
An epic and melodic workout.
Space Agent and Signal To Saturn are further examples of his canny ability to write expert electronic tunes while Prelude To Earthrise is detached yet spellbinding.
As we approach Earth, we become transfixed by The Sound Of Silence.
A dignified yet mournful version which works best on headphones while gazing at the stars.
In fact, the whole LP is best experienced at night, preferably with no other sounds to detract from the atmosphere
