Francis Dunnery once again tries something new, this time releasing an album that features no guitar! It goes without saying that this album is and will not be to everyone's liking. I have read many negative comments regarding the album so let me say the 1 star reviews are just as valid as my own.

Before dismissing Made In Space though lets start by saying the songwriting is top notch (as per usual). Frank does use a vocoder however I don't find this to be detrimental to the songs at all, it fits in well with the easy R&B vibe.

If your after It Bites style prog rock you'll be sorely disappointed, my advice would be to listen to this album with an open mind. Personally it's unlike any other album I have ever heard and admittedly is not the kind of music I would normally be partial to but Dunnery on the whole succeeds. The vocals harmonies with the talented Dorie Jackson are superb and after half a dozen plays the songs work their magic and have an undoubted charm about them.

Made In Space is not an easy listen - initially I thought 'all of these songs sound the same' - the songs are growers, stay with them and you may well be rewarded just like I was. The title track is magnificent and totally absorbing. Interestingly quite a few of these songs have been kicking around for years and years. 'Little Tears From A Big Pair Of Brown Eyes' is around 20 years old, ditto 'Bat Thing' & Haunted is also not a new track either, it does of course sound totally different though and like the album overall will divide opinions. For me, the album is far from perfect, I'd score it 7/10 and have rounded that up to 4 stars given Amazon's ratings system.

I have been an IT BITES and Francis DUNNERY fan since 1986 and own every album he has produced over the years. There was a time in my life, that I would have bought an album of Frankie snooring on vynyl however i regret to say this is most certainly not his finest hour! I truley recommend all previous Francis DUNNERY albums and both his voice and guitar playing are a joy to listen to...............which leads me to MADE IN SPACE.
The entire album is completely ruined by the voice synthesiser place over the top of DUNNERY's vocals and the total direction changing 'R&B feel'. I'm sure that the songs if re-recorded would stand well on their own and I have seen recordings of the title track with it's catchy melody, but i just can't like this, no matter how hard I try!
I think that Frankie needs to look at his Fan base and maybe leave the R&B to a younger and more credible generation and not to be ashamed of what he does well. I bought the album 6 months ago and i'm still not over the shock! In a nutshell 'Truly Terrible'.

If you've been listening to DUNNERY for any length of time you won't believe it until you've heard it for yourself! Prepare yourself, be warned!

I disagree with the majority of what Alan wrote, in that I saw Francis and band perform a couple of years back at the Customs House in South Shields and it was a brilliant gig. The accompanying double CD, There's a Whole New World Out There, and the Gully flats Boys releases were also indicative of a mellowing out without a reduction in quality. However, and this is where I must agree - the vocal effects on the samples here are truly heinous - is it a Vocoder? It was bad enough when Cher used it all those years ago, and to put it on Dorie Jackson's beautiful haunting voice is simply a crime. I won't be buying this that's for sure and as I've always held Francis in the highest regard, well, that my friends makes me sad...

Sorry guys, I'm a huge fan of Franks work and kind of knew this was going to be different, but.....................I don't get it! It's the first album in many years that I've downloaded then deleted!!!!
I'm sure many will enjoy it but not me, sorry Francis, hope there's something a little more akin to Man or guitar based in the pipeline ;)

I will not get personal, I love Francis's Music, and will always purchase his CD's when released. But he's really got the vocal production wrong on this CD.
There are some great songs on this CD, and Dorie is flawless as always. But the auto tune on francis's vocals just gets on my nerves.
I know Francis is a positive person,and he will bounce back, but as stated Made In Space is not for me.
