Desperately needs a reissue on vinyl, all the more so since he has now passed. Classic masterpiece of minimal techno and avant garde electronics.

I bought this thinking the album would be "Dive without vocals" as one Discogs user put it, like the 'Urania' track clickable in the video section. Unfortunately, the album is even more obtuse than an album I bought described as the most obtuse album ever. Listening to 'Urania' doesn't sound good on the album due to the preceding tracks perverting it into feeling like noise. I'm used to shifting through garbage in the industrial genre, but I can't imagine what depressing reality this music listened straight through as an album is supposed to match.

edit: I may need to reevaluate this album review.

Comment only: the CD copy I purchased in the mid-90s of "Vakio" has the final piece "Sähkötin" abruptly ending at 3:05. Another version owned by a then friend had it last over 8 minutes. I was wondering if my version was a manufacturing default...

Vakio sounds like what you hear when you enter a powerplant: a mean buzzin’sound of electricity running through all kind of cold devices; only here it is amplified a thousand times and forced in this sec and lifeless hitting pattern. Brilliant industrial ambient!<BR>
Notice CD was packaged in what seems to be a genuine Panasonic (the company) slip-over. Big fun of course although the company wasn't in for much hilarity and sued the guys!
