A crazy and much-sampled by dance musicians album. Just listen to the production on the last track "Mountain Of Needles", it is incredible the amount of reverb at a couple of points in the track when there are slightly louder sounds. The sounds just seem to bound off into the distance somewhere (particularly noticeable if you're listening on headphones)
