A bit of a mash up. You can kind of tell that the band were falling apart as this album doesn't flow like the previous releases. That said this has some absolutely brilliant music (obviously, it's Estradasphere!). It has studio recordings of such live classics as Mekapses Ytonisa, King Krab Battle and Hardball. A Car Ride in Idealistic Ethiopia (part 1) is one of my favourite Estradasphere tracks, written by Smollens with guest drums by the legendary Dave Murray (he'd left the band by this time but plays drums on a few tracks) and Jungle Warfare is fat! Heavy, noisy Death Metal with guest drums from Joh Merryman of Cephalic Carnage. If you can find this CD for a good price it is well worth picking up, but don't spend the £40 it usually goes for unless you know what you're buying, if you expect the flawless brilliance of It's Understood you probably won't find it here. There's also some really silly singing songs too, so be warned... Crystal Blue is a piece of beach boys rip off shit, makes me glad Whooley left. Shimmel's singy song "Speck" has some clever parts...
Some of the individual tracks are well worthy of 5 stars but the album just gets 3 as i think it's not a great effort all together.
