MARSCAPE REVIEWS "Two brilliant musicians Jack Lancaster and Robin Lumley have led a plucky team of musicnauts across the void to bring you a remarkable stereo sound record of a journey from Earth to Mars. The musicians involved in this trip across the solar system include all the members of Brand X including Phil Collins who storms away in his inimitable style. It's a splendidly successful record, my only regret is that Marscape couldn't have been a two record set as it is one of those rare examples of a concept conceived and performed by truly worthy musicians." (Dave Fudger. Sounds)
------------------ "Marscape" "The music ranges from rock, jazz, to string quartet. Lyricon, koto, glass flutes, electronic percussion and conventional instruments combine. The result, a rich textured unusual sound. In all a very innovated album. I was very impressed by the strong percussion and some intricate twelve string guitar on Homelight. Olympus Mons ends with powerful interplay between sustained guitar feedback and Lancaster's lyricon. I loved Realization and the longer tracks like Phobos and Demos where there was time to develop themes." (Steven Lavers. Melody Maker)..
