Major hit of the electronic underground. Amazing that they didn't have to repress this. A major expo of how the current idm sound at that time could be harnessed back into a more humanized analog sound with groove with absolute uniqueness. Many a fond memory listening to this album with friends and just enjoying my early 20s. Ambient noodlings with trip hop, electro and house. Casting a big net to find those who resonate with this amazing sound.

Without a doubt their finest and most accessible release to date.
a classic piece of electronica.

This entire LP is devoted to creating the Two Lone Swordsmen experience for the listener.
A perfectly great album to track down and to share often.

My favorite LP from the duo. It all flows naturally from a 'concept album' approach (how dope are those suits?) as well as a motorcity-style ambient odyssey. the bookend tracks really seal it up! definitely worth tracking down...
