Editor's note: this is a great thematic concept album. It starts out with a space-agey sort of triumphant orchestration and Apollo 8 sound bits. Which got me to hoping that it would follow in that vein but it goes the Jesus route with the narrator reading Biblical passages throughout the rest of the record with occasional bursts of Christmas carolling. That's cool by me because the music is mostly late 60s television theme song music and swings and sings to my inner medium is the massage soul. The only qualms I have with the Bible passages are that many are the oft-repeated ones that are like second language to many people.
