This was a first at its time, which was a little while ago. Though that shouldn't bother you-the sound is very good. There are no common musical structures to be found on this disc-nothing somebody would call "a song", in fact it sounds like sound effects, but this music possesses a hypnotic power and makes for a great trip-and now that I've learned a few things about electronic music, it seems to me that this is-acid!
