The third full-length album by Brian Eaton. "Though a bit of a departure from his usual vocal rock sound, Eaton is no stranger to jazz/fusion. The new instrumental album consists of nine original compositions showcasing the multi-instrumentalist’s diversity as a multi-genre artist.
"Eaton’s new project is an eclectic expanse of ethereal atmospheres and fields of magnetic, lyrical melodies orbiting a core of contemporary jazz and prog idioms. Listeners will find elements of jazz, prog rock, nu-jazz, world, R&B, ambient big spaces, and soundtrack vibes within the record. The opening track, 'Trans-Neptunian Dust,' features hypnotic, harmonizing horns with an infectious, smooth, jazzy groove, while 'Superheavy Metals of Ceres' rocks with saturated guitars and keyboards trading solos over a syncopated, weighty rhythm section. The latter features Eaton’s brother, Bill, on lead guitar, who’s played with former Guns N’ Roses guitarist Gilby Clarke.
"The ballads, like the captivating 'Alone on Top of Ahuna Mons' and the majestically optimistic 'Jovian Empyrean,' with its ever-rotating key signatures, revolve around piano and strings and feature electric bass guitar performing lyrical melodies. In fact, the bass is the featured lead instrument for much of the album including the proggy, upbeat 'Four String Theory,' in which all the tracks for the entire song (including the drum/percussion sounds) were created using bass guitar making it quite unique." — Bass Musician Magazine
