I have to agree with GalaxyExplorer with regards to this release - It is some of the best material that Global Goon has put out. My personal favourite track on this EP is 'Woo', which incorporates a cascading synth line, a brilliant set of harmonic chords which simmer with analogue warmth, a rolling beat which lapses into a set of punchy staccato kicks and a percussive sound which resembles a ball bearing sliding down a steel runner. The rest of the EP provides an equally interesting take on melodic IDM which is both fun and engaging on multiple levels. A 4/4 rhythm introduces itself on the final track (Fin) hinting at the acid explorations that Global Goon would indulge in on later releases. I'm always reminded of the sort of tight percussive sounds produced by the Yamaha RX11 when I listen to this EP, but it doesn't really matter what the source of the beats are at the end of the day, as they simply form part of a perfectly executed run of brilliantly crafted electronic tunes courtesy of Johnny Hawk.

I'm surprised by the low rating of this album. I think it's the best thing he's done. Six tracks of highly-melodic, rhythmically-complex IDM. It totally fits the style of Rephlex back in the day, bearing just the right amount of goofy. As a result, it's among the label's all-time best releases.
