I will start by this some of the most uneasy listening of hip hop i've ever heard, but amazing to say the least! a true testament of blending Industrial and live instrument influence with hip hop. "Spiritual Healing" is a lot more "industrial rap" than most i've heard, as the backing production seems to taken straight out of a early 80s industrial recording, backed by MC Dälek's often gutteral assault. the following tracks follow in a same manner in both been dark and incredibly well produced, but i'd say my fave two tracks off this album are the beautiful "Forever Close My Eyes" which blends shoegaze guitars with saddening spoken word poetry, and the closing Dvorak sampling "Classical Homicide". Hearing this now makes me wish these guys would've gotten more appreciation, as this was a great album. 5/5
