Spaceman Review
Well, surely everybody must know by now that this is the song used in the current Levi jeans advert featuring the girl and the spaceship.

What fewer people know is that the snatch used in the advert is totally unrepresentative of the song- and the band. The song starts with the familiar advert-sounding ambient space sounds, jungle beat and techno Morph vocals. Then it winds down, and a slow drum machine starts together with a digital bass and metal guitar.

The singer turns out to be male, with an amazing (or sequencer-enhanced) talent for sustain, but otherwise a pretty much standard rock voice. Overall the song has a tendency towards 70's space rockers such as Ziggy Stardust, with lots of references to the ills of society on petty Earth.

Above average and a nice one for the dancefloor. What really makes it is the melody, and there is a potential for further good songwriting. The single also features other mixes including a five-minute jungle version.
