Most of ZIA's live show consists of material from Big Bang, and if you do not yet own a ZIA CD, buy this one first! The title track is about the grand comsic event, the Big Bang, from which we were born. Golden and Nibiru were strongly inspired by Zecharia Sitchin's book The 12th Planet. This CD goes beyond Elaine's love for cold technology and outer space, with some slightly more down to Earth songs, emotionally inspired during Elaine's married years. lyrics
