"As long as this disc has been out,I was shocked to see that only one other person has reviewed it.As most of you probably do know,Zero Gravity is a one-man project.It's basically Len Del Rio,the keyboardist and sample programer that was on the road with Nik Turner on most of his U.S. treks through out the mid-'90's.Rio is also a member of the Anubian Lights and Pressurehed.The reason that I think so much of the 'Space Does...' CD is that Rio creates his OWN version of '90's atmospheric space rock without avoiding any of the true spirit of the way-under rated genre.The best two tracks are "Time...In My Brain" and "Stonehenge Revisited".But,rest assure,the rest of the disc is pretty decent.I still like pulling this CD out every now and again giving it a spin.No regret here."
Was dated when they recorded it.

""Space Does Not Care" was recorded in the mid-90s but it sounds more like someone trying to graft the Moog sound of the mid-70s onto the techno style of the mid-80s. As a theme album, it succeeds only in making us as uncaring about space as space allegedly is about us (although ironically, the title track is the most upbeat and energized selection on the entire album)."Mental Atmospheres" is a disjointed collection of spooky themes which reveal things about the artist's mental state that we probably didn't want to know. "Stonehenge Revisited" is also dark, but with a faster pace to match its guitar & keyboard arrangement. "The Centrifuge" sounds like they sampled a rhythm loop from the Cars and added swoosh! noises on top.On many tracks the music serves as a backdrop for rambling spoken-word samples about astronautics and UFOs, but the execution of this technique is really ineffective. The one exception to this is "Precognition," featuring three minutes from the infamous Hindenburg radio broadcast: as the reporter gushes excitedly about the historic event, the ambient soundscape heightens our agonizing awareness that something terrible is about to happen.Overall the album is dated and slow-moving. Almost slow enough to go to sleep by. If you want to hear Moog synths in a slightly more modern context, I suggest "Gorgeous" by 808 State."
