Although space is a virtual vacuum, this does not mean there is no sound. Sound exists as electromagnetic vibrations. The specially designed instruments aboard the space probes were designed to pick up and record electromagnetic vibrations. This information, when sent back to Earth and decoded, can be heard as intriguing and beautiful sounds from space. The real music of the spheres.

Fly out into space with this album. Imagine, all the space films released before this album had SPACEY sound f/x. But somehow they got it right. How could we have known what spacey sounds would sound like. Yet listen to this and you'll here lots of sounds that should sound as we would expect them to sound. Spacey. weird that.

From London to New York, Ewan and Charley chased their shadows through Europe, the Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Mongolia and Russia, across the Pacific to Alaska, then down through Canada and America. But as the miles slipped beneath the tyres of their big BMWs, their troubles started. Exhaustion, injury and accidents tested their strength. Treacherous roads, unpredictable weather and turbulent politics challenged their stamina. They were chased by paparazzi in Kazakhstan, courted by men with very large guns in the Ukraine, hassled by the police, and given bulls' testicles for supper by Mongolian nomads.

A previous review mentioned about moaning but I have defend the moaning. When out in the middle of no where your worst hurdle is yourself. I thought it was insightful to get the bad with good and see that even with the support team it was grueling both mentally and physically. I don't want to hear about the glossy bits I want to know what their fears and concerns are to, thus giving the listener an insightful view about the things we need to worry about and know that later,sometimes, it seems inconsequential. Very useful to smear a little RW to those dreaming of taking a journey like this. What I got from it is what I thought anyway, planning is paramount and this is insightful to hear about the bureaucracy surrounding the boarder control in the Eastern European countries like Kazakhstan. A worth while audible journey to take, grunts and all. The funny thing about this audible is when Charlie is on, it sounds like Ewan in Star Wars.

so far from what i read, i found myself laughing hesterically in places like tesco and other public places. So for i have not been able to read it so ive downloaded this instead. Having the real guy narrate it seem highly right as i cannot imagine anyone else delivering this wonder story any other way.
