Gritty noises, tape loops, harsh voices, and lo-fi samples are the everpresent elements that compound these industrial landscapes.

There's quite a variety of styles here: From ear-bleeding Merzbow-style noise ("Cradle Rocker", "Ten Sovereigns"), to dark ambient passages ("That Red Wall Feeling", "Tanks In Gdansk"). There's also rhythmic parts ("Even the Good Times Are Bad", "Kick In The Testes"), hints of punk music ("Let The Bad Times Roll") and even moments of experimental silliness ("All The Popular Tunes", a song mashup, and "Fried Eggs", that it's, indeed, the sound of eggs cooking over a frying pan). "Foetal Grave" is, in my opinion, one of the best industrial compositions I have ever listened.

In short, it's a great album filled with surprises and ultra-rare stuff. Essencial for all industrial music fans.
