can't get my head around why this is so expensive these days- was it a limited press? just outside of the original version of Empire's Generation Star Wars this is his most expensive album on vinyl. still, its a fabulous trip and often very different to most of his more abrasive outputs, much like a perfect companion to "limited editions.." if you can find this at the right price, hold onto it.

Bought this in a shop in Peterborough, pretty sure it was January, 96, I was waiting to get my passport for a trip to Paris with my girlfriend of the time - we flew the next day. The relationship was short lived... Conversely, having just dug this out of an old record box in my mom's attic, seems to have matured much better, like a fine wine, or a particularly excellent cognac. Lucky me.

An amazing masterpiece Empire made while on tour with Atari Teenage Riot, that makes it extra special in my view!
It's a timeless classic , worthy of every electronic music collection, simply a must have !

This album was recorded live in Iceland to accompany a movie by German film director Philip Reichenheim.

Too abstract for me compared to similar works of his from this era. Pass.

This album is from beginning to the end cold! really cold. And the dub makes this so deep too. I remember after years Alec Empire made a speech when mentioning this album that: You feel like stuck in a deep hole in ice and when you look up to the sky from the hole you start freezing slowly... That is the best explanation for that album.

A timeless classic! Morbid like a heroin drug movie soundtrack and deep like the icewalls of iceland! Some tracks (20(1), 20(2)) seems to only consist of reverbed soundscape while others (low on ice) require a decent subwoofer turned up to loud to fully enjoy those low frequencies.
