This album is excellent, but it is NOT for wimps who need vocals and catchy hooks to remind them that they are listening to music. On this album, the guitar is the journey...

Great structures, very interesting and inspired guitar work, with occasional flashbacks to the lunacy of earlier ND output.

I'm confused as to why this album is stylistically classified (at time of writing) on Discogs as 'Noise'. The music is certainly experimental, but it is far from noise. When an album doesn't follow music writing and instrumental conventions that most listeners are comfortable with, said album does not instantly become classifiable as noise.

The guitar work here is not only unique, but after a few listens, those strange soundscapes will start creeping into your head.

While this does stylistically deviate from early ND, it undeniably retains the essence. If possible, play 'Bride', 'All Creatures' and then the 'The Planet Cachexial', in that order, each release in its entirety, in one listening session (in the dark with a clear and open mind works best ;)

If you can find it, get it.
