There are bits of this album that resemble Walter Carlos's Symphonic Seasoning, one of electronica's earliest ambioscapes. But Alpha isn't that old-school. And their musical directions aren't that narrow. Changeability seems to be the action word for this album, with each track finding a fresh place to sit. The biggest surprise is that, however thinly, it holds together. In some very real sense, Stargazing is a jumbled medley compiled from the entire spectrum of the UK's popular culture. It's part Kylie, part Shirley Bassey, part Morcheeba and part Granada Television broadcast, all basking in the rays of Future Sound of London's sweeping techo wizardry and Coldplay's emo-pop sensibilities. It's confusing to label but frictionless to slip into.
