about

1979 - Mellow Records reissue: 1994

Antares in actually sound pretty damn good!

"Sea of Tranquility", named after the Apollo moon
landing location, after the easy listening first track,
improves drastically into a nice, spacey late 70s ride.

Think of a cross between Antonius Rex's "Ralefun"
album and an Eloy album.

Pleasent melodies and soothing electronic
space-scapes mingle with lovely acoustic
and electric guitar solos.
It's nothing heavy or complex prog,
but it is very pleasant stuff.

The product description writers at Kinesis
summed it up like this:
"After a easy first track, it settles into mostly
instrumental symphonic progressive with
a spacey, Floydian feel.
Rather than the Hammond and Mellotron
favored by earlier progressive bands,
Antares' keyboardist used Roland
and Korg synths of that era". - Kinesis

"Sea of Tranquility" is just one of those late
70s obscurities which very few people
will ever hear, but if you like gentle spacey
atmospheres with melodic guitar leads,
you will find some enjoyment!
