I guess I shouldn't complain too much seeing as how it's a free mp3 album, but I just can't get into it at all.

While I enjoy a few tracks, namely Hafizz Maiden and Anti And A AK-47, and the title track, I feel the bulk of the album is pretty throw-away.

When I was first getting into Muslimgauze's music, I downloaded this album because, well, it's free, and thought it would serve as a good introductory album for me; since then I've purchased 5 other Muslimgauze albums and I feel they are all VASTLY superior to this mess.

Most tracks are pretty much just percussion beats looped for a varying number of minutes, mixed in with abrupt silence and occasional samples (classic Muslimgauze) but this time the whole vibe from the album seems very routine and shallow.

Apparently the album was recorded in one day (more classic Muslimgauze) but this actually sounds like it was recorded in one day, even an hour or so, since whatever length of effort he put into it seems missing in my ears.

I kind of think that it wasn't commercially released based on the fact that it isn't all that great, but that's just my bias on the whole matter. It isn't totally awful though, but for others interested in Muslimgauze, this is a horrible first example. Still, for collectors waiting for more unearthed brilliance from Muslimgauze, this is worth the effort of downloading.
