Hope (album)

Hope is the second album released by the Canadian group Klaatu, in September, 1977. It is a concept album, recorded with the London Symphony Orchestra, about the sole survivor of an arrogant race of beings, who warns space travelers of hazards in the last days of his life.

The recording is rich in both musical content, as one of the most powerful combinations of rock and classical orchestral music to date, and in production values, sounding like a modern recording, even though it was created in the late 1970's on a relatively small budget by a few people.

Many fans and critics consider Hope to be the most creative of the Klaatu albums, although their first album is also highly regarded.
