Annoyingly this record lives up to the hype (as the first toytronic release). It really is one of the best records I've heard in a long time. Sounds Great at 33, sounds great at 45. Lots of what sound like computer game sound FX, crunchy beats, wooshy synths. Its not all that limited either since its been re-issued twice. Its on ebay most of the time and you shouldnt have to pay more than about 25 pounds for it. Nice thick vinyl too for enthusiasts of that sort of thing! Not only my favorite Toytronic release and favorite Gimmik release, but also one of my favorite releases period.

Sampled video game chirps, blips and beeps. Very different from the later albums, IMHO. Still very enjoyable. Abrasive, rough and smooth, yet fully enveloping.
