The best way I can think to review “Millennial Falcon” is by recounting the aftermath of my maiden spin. I sat in a stunned silence for a full 15 seconds. Muttered, “holy shit,” to no one in particular. Then hit the play button again.
True to it’s name, “Millennial Falcon” plays out on a galactic scale. The track has it’s own gravitational field, fueled by Mr Gabriel’s outsized swagger and a bassline that could have been recorded by stampeding space elephants. I know what you’re thinking…space elephants? Yes. Space elephants. If Mr Gabriel doesn’t have to play by the rules of our solar system, then neither do I. Space elephants.
