As I have recently copped the remaster of this album (i've had the CD version laying around for a good years but have noted it having a influence on a lot of my earlier musical outputs) this is definitely one of DHR's most ambitious releases that doesn't sound like anything before or after released on this label, as back in 1996 with the likes of ATR appearing on MTV and getting exposure thanks to Grand Royal among the others such as Sonic Subjunkies, Patric Catani and Bomb 20 leading the pre foetal esscence of breakcore music, this "outsider" release showed up out of the blue. kicking off with the 15 minute dirge of Opium the album shifts into some very intense dark dnb, some slight snatches of IDM and some wonderfully composed dark ambient sounds, and then like strange thief in the night, Babalon disappeared again to only appear with a handful of EP's and split releases in the late 90s-00's. Thom Yorke famously quoted this "was the most menacing release in his collection" and its hard not to see why he'd say such a thing. a great ride from start from finish.

Can someone comment the sound quality of the black vinyl pressing? And have all the copies really been recalled due to pressing issues?!

Was pleasantly surprised to get the clear pressing from Forced Exposure here in the US.

Just a heads-up to anyone looking to buy this pressing - got an email from Mohammad at Fatbeats. My preorder was delayed until March because the distributor recalled the pressing for a defect. I can’t be certain, but there is a good chance that currently available copies are bad.

Its a satisfying dark Album, however a bit noisy and aggressive, the whole Album seems almost like a constant running, good for trips. My favorite tracks however are the smoother and darker , "Opium" and "High life".

Two other reviewers = 100% Agree, one of my all-time favorite records, and a big influence on my own work. Listened to the previews of the new album. Sounds like a cheap RDJ knockoff, If You're Into It, I'm Out Of It certainly doesn't!

This record is intense! It's the reason why I love and respect Christoph de Babalon. This is nothing like the rest of DHR catalog. This is dark, brooding, sinister and intense!! When I bought this record I heard the first five seconds of Opium and thought, "I'm going to love this record!", and I do, from start to finish. Opium and High Life are two epic tracks filled with deep drones and harrowing ambience. The rest of the album is filled with the same spine tingling ambience and heavy breakbeat arrangements. They aren't any in-your-face style DHR breakbeats, but it's not a light D n' B track either. Give this record a listen, you will not be disappointed.
