V_Shaft Prog rock of the highest caliber The closing track is one of the most atmospheric and immersive I have ever heard, I get shivers every time the guitar wails like the alert siren. An epic cosmic musical journey. Favorite track: When The Air Runs Out.

Sam Edmisten Robin Armstrong created a masterpiece with The Man Left in Space. As a listener you can feel the isolation and desperation of the astronaut in peril. You take a journey into the cold depths of space and despite the horror... you go back again and again because the music is just that darn good. Favorite track: When The Air Runs Out.

"In our race for achievement and success, we sometimes gamble with our lives only to collect isolation, unhappiness and failure."

'The Man Left in Space' is a concept album exploring the themes of aspiration, achievement, and the failures that success sometimes brings. The story is played out against the analogous theme of a doomed space mission, launched in a bid to save mankind. The story provides a metaphor for the perils of success, such as boredom, isolation, unhappiness and ultimately failure...

The 9 track progressive rock album draws on many past and contemporary influences in music, and takes a journey into the unknown to feed the imagination, and appetite of the listener of intelligent music. It features a number of special guests from the progressive rock community including Nick D'Virgilio (Spock's Beard/Big Big Train ), Dave Meros (Spock's Beard), Matt Stevens, Greg Spawton (Big Big Train), Simon Rogers, Steve Dunn ( Also Eden ), Lee Abraham ( The Lee Abraham Band ), Luke Machin ( The Tangent/Maschine ) and Dave Ware.
