"... er Olga Witte vor tids Jon Lord? Bare en tanke! Kvinden med dagens største instrument havde skrevet Onkel Alberts Rumtid, inspireret af en børnebog af samme navn om Albert Einstein og hans relativitetsteori. Og her blev salmestøvet for alvor blæst ud af orgelpiberne i en skræmmende voldsom intro.

Man forestillede sig lyden af verdens skabelse, efterfulgt at Vogels altsax, der som en frisk spire i stilheden efter kaos symboliserede livets opståen. Kim Kristensen stemte i med noget, der lød som en Moog, og sammen åndede de alle ud i et forløsende suk."

In English:

"...is Olga Witte the Jon Lord of our time? Just a thought! The woman with the largest instrument of the day had composed Onkel Alberts Rumtid, inspired by a children's book of the same name [The time and space of uncle Albert by Russell Stannard] and his theory of relativity. And here the hymn dust was seriously blown out of the organ pipes in a frighteningly violent intro. One imagined the sound of the creation of the world, followed by Vogel's alto sax, which as a fresh sprout in the silence after chaos symbolized the origin of life. Kim Kristensen joined in with something that sounded like a Moog, and together they all breathed a final sigh of relief."
