Pixel Planet


Artist: Carl Hudson
Label: Splash Music
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 01 May 2017

Carl Hudson reissues his 2016 album Pixel Planet. Eclectic, Futuristic, Soulful, Danceable. The album tells the story of an alien spacecraft, exploring our solar system, 30,000 years into the future - looking for the last bastion of human activity long after we have departed...

I'm not really sure what's going on here, but this album was originally released in February 2016, and from what I can gather it was only ever available as a digital download album. For some reason it's being reissued over a year later (May 2017) but, when checking online stores, only the 2016 edition seems to be available. Is this a marketing swizz to get additional coverage so people buy a year old album?

At the end of the day, it matters not. The LP sounds like it's about 50 years old. There's a huge '60s/'70s disco vibe going on here - which is great if you love that sort of thing, but a little dull if not.

It's distracting enough, for a couple of play, but there's nothing here that's overly exciting and it's doubtful you'll get more than a week's enjoyment out of it.
