One thing I've always admired about Main was their serial style of releasing their music, with the Firmament series (and scattered Firmament tracks strewn about in other releases) and then this, which I consider Main's truest masterwork; if considered to be a single cohesive album, it is quite an impressive feat. I personally think it's some of Main's best work, production and composition-wise, with my favorites being the two-piece 'Corona', though they all have their strengths. The music is of great variety, even among the different 'EP' portions, it's an eclectic and rewarding listen. A definitive purchase of the band, and the genre.

Main released this originally as a limited edition singles collection. Once a month (during 6 months) Beggars Banquet released a cd5. The last disc (Neper) included a grey collectors box and a booklet.

On every single sleeve there is a photo of a stone structure. Good minimal design and good minimal music!
