This album was recorded in between Brand X albums, Unorthodox Behaviour and Moroccan Roll, and essentially, Marscape is another Brand X album, as the album featured Lancaster on wind instruments, Lumley on keyboards, with Phil Collins, John Goodsall, Percy Jones, and Morris Pert. But since this album was recorded on RSO Records (and not Charisma in the UK and Passport in the US), they couldn't use the Brand X name. Marscape seems to be the only title on the RSO label of interest to prog rock fans (after all, this was the label best known for Clapton and the Bee Gees, not to mention the soundtrack to the 1978 dud movie adaptation of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band). Musically, this is a more progressive and impressionistic version of the Brand X sound, giving the atmosphere of a desolate landscape of Mars. This album should not be overlooked, especially if you're a Genesis/Phil Collins/Brand X fan, as this is a pretty good album.

Nice find

I haven't listened to the tracks here, but I have the LP and it was always one that I enjoyed. This album was one of the reasons I bought a special turntable to digitize my LP collection. The sound is very electronic/jazzy and paints a picture of a trip from the Earth to Mars. The original version has a different (and better) album cover. Search the web and you'll see it. Phil Collins plays drums on the album. I'd recommend getting all the tracks in order since they tell a story.
