I would love it if Kranky would do a 2LP reissue of this amazing debut.

This is ruthless seduction. How such beauty can emerge from the cold and lifeless resistors, transistors and pathways of computerized noisemakers is a mystery. The aching strains and looping oscillations are threadbare, yet their emotive content is so full as to be scarcely containable.

The gamelan-like drones tread a threshold that is extended and tested yet never crossed; a perpetual sense of psycho-acoustic claustrophobia that threatens to burst, but never does.

This is deceptively simple music. It would be a catastrophe to dismiss Loscil's artistry and craft as in any way a part of the forgettable electronica-industrial-complex that has come to dominate the meaning of "music by electricity".

In many ways this reveals a special kinship with Aphex Twin's monolithic "Selected Ambient Works, Volume II", though perhaps in more recognizable terms. I can think of no other worthy comparisons.
