At times this 1989 album by A.R. Kane sounds like a soundtrack to some 80's Tom Hanks film where he wanders the streets of New York and it is snowing and it is christmas and there is Santa Claus and the Coca-Cola truck and Hanks' girlfriend has run off with some evil smug stockbroker. The only friend that the Hanks character has is some wild dog that comes and goes. Or a homeless person whose tips and lifelessons Hanks first ignores. But finally he realizes that he must give that homeless person a chance, and then a miracle happens and the homeless person reveals his/her true identity as an ancient christmas elf. Now that the Hanks character has proven that his heart is pure, the elf will make some magic happen, and it makes the mischieving girlfriend see what a great guy the Tom Hanks character really is. Apologies get made, rings get changed, and after a night of sweet and steamy love Tom Hanks rises from the bed with his jeans still on. The end credits roll with A.R. Kane's "Love From Outer Space" playing on the background. It is now time to turn off the tv and realize that life is empy, universe is hostile, and the only thing waiting at the end is a lonely, cold and dark grave.
Yes, yes, there are some very nice dream pop/space rock songs too in this album, but there are more important matters in this world now, like imaginary Tom Hanks films from the 80's, and that is where we should keep our focus on.
