Carl Crack personnal solo work and made with very deep emotions and feelings . One of these rare gems to get and listen in your life on CD or Vinyl . Deep respect for Carl Crack who died too soon . R.I.P.

Deep, paranoid, isolated, an "Alice In Cold Concrete Land" kind of record. It's brooding lo-fi intensity only matched by it's decaying beauty. Brutal, honest & sparse.

Carl Crack's solo release is often a quite dark and personal release to listen to- i've heard some of the the music on this release been called dub, but the sound shifts from slowed-down sludgy industrial hip hop, brutal jungle cuts and music that sounds like incidental music for a horror movie, or a martial arts movie. My only complaint is the sound quality is really rough on each track which spoils most of the songs and depending on the mood, this can be a difficult release to listen to. But if are interested in what Carl sounded like outside of his usual energetic MCing on the ATR releases, you might want to give this a spin and be enlightened that it doesn't sound like your usual DHR record. 5/5

This shows a strong side of Carl Crack's deep personality and his alienation - very melancholic - There is no deeper lo-fi underground record until this day!!! We can't find words for this - this is just so soulful… Carl, thank you for this!
