Interesting concept but falls flat for the most part.

I highly recommend that you rip the album to a lossless format and play it on shuffle through a music application that doesn't contain track gaps (i.e., foobar2000).

'Minidisc' was reportedly the first ever Minidisc-only release. This comprised of 45 tracks sliced into 88 portions, and encouraging the listener to loop and shuffle at will.

Working members for the minidisc project were Russell Haswell, Sean Booth and Rob Brown.

Probably the most experimental Gescom release. More of an experimental artifact than something I'd consider a substantive piece of work. More to the point: it's not something I consider enjoyable. It's still cool, though... if you really hate it, you can at least justify the purchase by calling it "historical": it was the world's first (only?) Minidisc-only release. Amazing, eh? ;)

This is the only thing I have ever listened to that made me physically ill. After about 10 minutes I wanted to remove it from the deck and smash it with a hammer.

apparently it's meant to be listened to in a random order (on shuffle).

the worlds first mini-disc only release by booth/brown/others? on Russel Haswell's label OR. absolutely essential to anyone concerned with following the lines drawn by progressive electronics. will not appeal to fans of Autechre looking for nostalgic sounds of 1993. serve cold with friends
