Ed Rush & Optical: Quantum Drum'n'Bass

Carl Loben, Melody Maker, 30 January 1999

IN CONTACT, Jodie Foster climbs into the capsule, straps herself in, and mentally prepares for the impending voyage. The aliens have kindly given Earth/the US the plans for this cyber-dome-dimension-transporter-with-tentaclesthingy, and Jodie's been chosen as the first person to make "contact". And then she's sucked down some long, dark tunnel — a wormhole — that transcends time and space, with all sorts of mad, psychedelic visuals along the way. Wheeeeeee!
