I've only recently discovered Gelsomina while delving into the Finnish Noise scene but there is a wealth of material released by this artist that I'm excited to discover.

This CD collects an overview of compilation and limited CD-R tracks which were only available previously in limited numbers. I think what makes this project stand out is the attention to detail while never losing focus of keeping a track visceral. Each track successfully blows your hair back while drawing your attention to the details buried in the mix. The linear notes contain anecdotes from Mikko Aspa and Pasi Markkula and I think Mikko says it well when he says, "It is no surprise that I felt slightly annoyed, that such quality material is being thrown down the drain, on tiny, non-existent CDR labels who barely bother to distribute their own release."

Sometimes it's hard to distinguish, or at least explain in an review, what sets one harsh noise artist apart from another. This compilation stands as a persuasive document to why Gelsomina should be revered among his peers.
