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)..

Wow! A NUGGET of early Brand X history discovered!
Thank you, Jack Lancaster! This CD thrills me to no end. I thought I already owned all of the vital material by Brand X, but I was wrong! Kudos to you for making this little treasure available!

David Harrison

Excellent Find. A wonderful journey through space and time.
I had this on tape when I attended Stanford and found it an inspirational aid to my studies. Great music, some of it arranged and well composed with other sections loose and free blown. both hot and very cool. Phil Collins plays with abandon and with Lancaster's sax and wind synth playing the music comes to life in a wonderful way. I always considered Percy Jones the most innovative and best bass player in the world. Why isn't he a superstar? It tells a story.Thanks for the music.


Marscape is no escape
This is such a great music. I once had the album (>15 years ago) and (then) I liked the music at once. I kept playing the record over and over again. I specially liked the atmospheric (ambient) sounds (watergongs!) which now and then were joyfully disturbed by fierce drumpatterns and jazzrock like themes. Optimistic music. After all these years I found a cd-version on the www. I bought it/played it and discovered the music was not lost in time nor space. It could have been made yesterday. But then on the other hand our lineair time experience doesn't actually exist. Marscape is no escape.

So great...
Friend of mine introduced me to this album 30 years ago. It has been in and out of my mind and heart since then, although I had no access to it for years. Saw it here, ordered it, and sank right into the dreamy ecstasy it enveloped me with back then. This is A1+ musical art.
