By Nick O
Format:Audio CD
After seeing Liz Mitchell and Boney M perform in Bingley park a while back, my long-standing enthusiasm for Boney M's music
was propelled sky-high. A timely re-release of all the original albums on
CD is great news.
I was slightly wary as I put this album on to play, as all the tracks were
unfamiliar, but it only took one audition to reassure me that this was to
become a favourite.
In a similar vein to the more well-known 'Nightflight to Venus', several
tracks are on the theme of taking off from earth, as in 'Future World' where
you're encouraged to 'Leave your belongings all behind - everything you need
is in your mind.'
A couple of beautifully melodious love songs with 'Jimmy', and the
heart-rending 'Where Did You Go?'
'Dizzy' turned out to be a cover of the song we all know - can't remember
off-hand who did it originally, but I do remember the Vic & Bob version. The
Boney M attempt isn't my favourite, I'm afraid!
'Bel Ami' and 'Alibama' add a tropical lilt to the album - light years away
from some of the earlier tracks.
I have now heard just about all of the album re-releases, and I would say
this one has to be my fave!

4.0 out of 5 stars "Get on board and fly with me to the future world ..." 5 Sep 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
It's true that this album was a well-kept secret. It was totally ignored at the time when it was released but it's nothing but a stunning album. The sound is distinctively pure, sharp and electronic, taking on a more rock-oriented approach. The A-side tells the story of a departure from Earth ("Exodus") to a "Wild Planet" where the "Future World" can begin, "10.000 Lightyears" away! Sadly, it's all just a dream and you'll have to hope and pray that "Somewhere In The World" there is peace of mind. Frank Farian put $300,000+ into this production which includes participation of The London Philharmonics and The Munich ditto and you'll wonder why great songs like "Exodus", "Future World" or "I Feel Good" wasn't a hit. The vocal harmonies sound better than ever too, you'd just wish Marcia Barrett had had her share of lead vocals too!

5.0 out of 5 stars Must have for any Boney M Music Lover 6 May 2000
By Mr. Vijay Venkataraman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
An excellent CD. I am really surprised that this album is not that well known especially as the the songs are great. I would agree with a previous review - expecting us to go 10,000 years into the future is just extreme fantasy!
