An astronomical theme.  The titles of the album are all named after the 13 known moons of Neptune, which are all named after mythological water deities.  The first is Triton.  This is the largest moon and the first moon discovered.  The reason for making it the shortest track is that Triton was discovered 17 days after the discovery of Neptune itself.  The idea is that even though the first and largest, the significance of the discovery may not have been considered as important at the time as the disovery of Neptune.  Halimede, Thalassa and Despina are short drum programming tracks, the other tracks are all played on electric guitar. 

Basically, this disc is comprised of works that describe the emotion that accompanies “discovery”, as well as trying to describe the moon and the water deities that the moon is named after.  I read a week ago that earth is the only world not named after a God.
