This is one of my favorite albums of all time so I'm really glad I have this vinyl. It looks great and even has lyrics which I love. If you just want to listen to the album though grab the mp3s or CD. The pressing is pretty quiet in comparison to other dance music vinyl, just because they had to fit an entire album onto two records. Treat as a collectors item only.

So this was actually never released on vinyl? I just rediscovered it 8 years after its initial release, so timeless album if you ask me!

This album is not musically exceptional, but what keeps on bringing me back to it is that no one else really makes anything like this. Emotionless monologues are laid over dubstep beats to create a unique blend that I can't say I've ever heard before Kode9 & The Spaceape created this and then repeated the act on their subsequent album "Black Sun". It's more a reflection of The Spaceape's talent than Kode9's because the former's vocals are what define this album, more so than Kode9's contribution.

The first time I really 'got' this record, was while riding on the train from Amsterdam central to my home a little south of the city, while tripping on some suprisingly strong spacecake.

Since that one time, the impression the record makes when playing it keeps growing and growing. There is some crap tracks on the record I guess (I don't like 'Nine', 'Sine' and 'Bodies') but these are compensated for by the bulk of the material. The Kode9 instrumentation is very minimal and really benefits from powerfull reproduction (a mellow track like '9 Samurai' becomes a real gut-wrenching experience when played at a bass-heavy rave).

It's the lyrics by The Spaceape that make this something special though. He's got a really low and dark voice and speaks very direct to the listener, without sounding offensive or over-confident. The themes he adresses are between the surreal and the philosofical, taking a sci-fi take on raving on 'Victims' and confronting an overtly paradigmatic system in 'Quantum', always with the listener as some kind of character in the story. He adresses fundamental intellectual questions about our existence without being boring or corny, but very modern and eclectic. Kode9 did a perfect job laying down the grooves for it.

Wether you're using your sunday afternoon for a psychedelic shroom-trip or for studying your philosophy exams, this record will provide inspiration.
