The album tracks all flow one on to the next, almost as if it were one huge track. Each one is very varied and yet still links to the main "Songs of Distant Earth" theme. The way it returns to "A New Beginning" is almost a loop, and there are some layed-back tracks, rushed tracks, beautifully sonic tracks…
For those who are afraid of another Tubular Bells, please don't be!
The name of the albums is taken from a book by Arthur C. Clarke, with the same name as the album.
