A force of undeniable beauty, taken to many extremes. Very dangerous, and violent at times, but it is extremely beautiful and comforting throughout. There is plenty of insanity in this album, but not at all too insane to handle. Every sound in this album tries to pull you in to listen to the complete masterpiece itself. There is no way to really explain this album in words. Just get it.

This album is revolting a beautiful. The first track is made from arranged samples of ACTUAL LIPOSUCTION! The other tracks include samples of LASIK surgery, Hearing aid tests, lab rat cages, human skulls, and rhinoplasty. Matmos are geniuses. Buy this album. Smile and vomit.
