More Info

"The record was mainly composed on Korg analogue synthesizers plus processed audio from primary source material and field/found recordings. Besides the boss, it features the participation of other human entities in a couple of instances (Ted Wheeler and a St. Deborah). This time the title track also the longest, once again is placed right at the beginning but its compulsiveness is rendered more acceptable by the volatility of the sequences, and the nineteen minutes flow pretty easily. The rest is a mixture of relentless aural vexations and cerebral bewilderment permeated by sonorities that are best described as deliriously cluttered. One manages to get a vague impression of a few familiar elements: deformed voices, guitars equalized as if played inside a stomach. The recalcitrant temperament of some of these digressions at times enhanced by industrial percussions who would test Jobs patience is not exactly what will persuade a loved person to remain faithful. However, this constant rupture of any scheme that might remotely be associated with consonance and mental respite is entertaining. Quite often, this music is so absurdly unhinged that ends sounding like a sticky magma of cacophonic emissions of which we can just imagine the underlying plot. Fact is, this kind of matter has always interested yours truly and Stewart is not an adolescent foot-dragger." [Massimo Ricci / Touching Extremes]
