REVIEW One of the great space albums, from the title track to cuts like “Pulstar,” “Alpha” and “Sword of Orion.” Like Spiral, the relatively short run times have allowed parts of Albedo 0.39 to fit easily on compilations. Of course, I was never ga-ga about Spiral, so whether this stands up to Heaven and Hell remains to be heard.
