Epochal release- one of the first 'noise as aesthetic' records. Knocks most so-called industrial records into a very cocked hat. Definitely a record to be played at one's funeral, as one observer noted. AMM's catalogue is mainly meditative and relaxed; this one breaks the mould, and it's odd that they never really ventured down this path again (apart from 'Live In Allentown'). Highly recommended.
