Crumb cher escape from the fallen planet full album 1986


Escape From the Fallen Planet is a 1986 new wave/pop album by Crumbächer. Playing on the theological concept of mankind's fall from Eden, the cover design and several songs illustrate the theme in a sci-fi paradigm (including hairdos and use of hairspray comparable to a-ha and Wham!). For instance, "Crashlanded" describes a crashed spacecraft in need of "divine intervention". In other metaphors, temptation is portrayed as a "Tourist Trap" and death and the afterlife as making the "Graduating Class" ("the honor students leave us all too soon").

Crumbächer's biggest hit on contemporary Christian music radio to date was "Interstellar Satellite", which tells the story of the spacecraft that is longing for the heavenly home ("I’ll escape this fallen planet, to the everlasting light"). Another hit on contemporary Christian music radio was "Life of the Party", that talks about having a greater reward awaiting in heaven, prior to being saved.

The album was re-mastered and released in 2011 as a 25th Anniversary Edition with one bonus track.
