Well, well : spoken from an old classic ! This is one. Nice record! A bit special style, but worth listening to !

derek oliver(writer of kerrang magazine & author of the international encyclopedia of hard rock & heavy metal) once stated that alpha centaury is the worlds best undiscovered pomp rock band,this statement has obviously made aor collectors around the world to start searching for such album including me;once my search was over the first words that came to my mind were "son of a b***h...derek is right!!." the rest is history as they say!!.

Excellent rare long lost classic gem of an album from US Pomp Rockers Alpha Centauri. This album is well worth getting for your collection. I seen these guys live and they put on an awesome show. Think of early Rush mixed with early Yes. Just listen to the epic Hard Life, I'm A Rebel, Love Is A Curse, Love Only You. Rated 9/10.

Originarios d Colorado pero trasladados a Canada, por lo tanto, ¿Banda d donde??? Yo los pongo como Norteamericanos Dicen q es la Banda d mas Clasica Pomp mas desconocida del mundo... Randy Thompson era el canatante y teclista d la banda y uno d sus fundadores.. se fundo en el 71, y desaparecio en el 83.. Grabaron su primer y unico disco en Candada, pero todos los componentes son d Usa!!! Vaya Tela!! ¿Q deciis vosotros?

little..little classic in my collection ..but nice sign of the times ?

From: juan carlos Date: May 26, 2009 at 14:20
Good record or maybe a Classic if you are Fan of Pomp Rock but not my kind of stuff, sorry. Good guitar Solos and some catchy tunes/Keyboards, just that for me. "You Shot Me Down" and "Earth in Motion" are Good ones. 7.5/10

From: Delbert Date: January 9, 2010 at 15:02
I noticed the name was spelled incorrectly....the actual name of the band is Alpha Centauri...This band from Colorado is fronted by vocalist/keyboardist Randy Thompson and guitarist Jess Redman on their only release that I'm aware of. You'll hear some well played AOR/Pomp for fans of classic bands such as STYX AND ROADMASTER. Definitely a classic...
