A Point Too Far to Astronaut is a psychedelic collage of spacey samples, droning synths, hard-hitting drums, early 60s vocal samples, pretty guitar riffs and sweet piano melodies, interwoven with surreal poetry pieces from what sounds like a lost dictaphone. The mood of the record ranges from hallucinatory to sad and contemplative to paranoid and angry to good old sarcasm and laughter.
Embracing a bit of ADD, the record demonstrates tel.jim.jesus's range of ability. With its short track lengths and varying moods, the record never loses the listener's interest and at the same time manages to maintain cohesiveness through out the record. A Point Too Far to Astronaut reads like a Douglas Adam's novel. The most remote destination imaginable is really only as distant as you want it to be.
