Tearisci is a presque anagram of Eric Satie (missing the "e") and a cover of his Pièces Froides, No. 2: Danses De Travers: III

It still remained uncredited but the lead vocalist on hidden track "Face Me" is not Alison Goldfrapp but Mara Carlyle whose charming voice can be heard on early Plaid albums. Alison is also there as a backing singer.

My absolute favourite release by Plaid, definitely not something for everyone, as it is very quirky and unexpected, but the whole album stands out as a single experience, album artwork included. Plaid really brought something timeless here. It sounds as fresh and original almost two decades on. Unpredictable is a good word to use, originally heard this on cd back in 2000, borrowed from a friend, played it a couple of times as a background during summer nights, and it just absolutely gelled into the atmosphere. Managed to get hold of a near mint vinyl copy recently and it's one of those rare releases that still sound perfectly fresh. Very unexpected, rich, playful, covers a wholly unusual landscape and creates excellent images and a unique listening experience. It got so damn great with time. The album artowrk shows magnificently on the 12" format with the gatefold. A favourite record and I do recommend getting this on vinyl as it still sounds great and adds warmth to the electronic detail. One thing, the vinyl's lead in grooves on my copy, all four sides, have quite a lot of noise, probably caused by improper cleaning or more dust exposure of the edges through the years, as the noise gradually disappears as the first tracks start and the rest of the silences between tracks are nice and quiet.

I'd tell you to expect the unexpected when listening to this album, but that would be an incredible understatement.

From the electro-bouncey hip-hop of "Shackbu" to the spine-tingly beauty of "Ralome"; the ambience of "Buddy", the shear idiotic joy that is "Dang Spot", and the masterwork of the album, "Pino Pomo", this album will always leave you wondering. "Face me"(the bonus track at the end of "Air Locked") features vocals by Allison Goldfrapp; just stunning.

Hunt this down!

Agree w Dubvulture on the cover but hey this is quirky electronica so why the need for a serious cover. Superb release which is varied within the IDM styles of its day and carries that nice hyper creative vibe that Black Dog had/has. The music bubbles with percussion, hums with intricate melodies and lastly leaves the curious listener wanting more. Brilliant A+!

Er… I have this release and it DOES contain a tracklisting. It's on the "back" of one of the two booklet size cards included.

This is by far the best of Plaid's releases to date. The album as a whole covers so many different genres of electronic music and hits them so perfectly that it is hard to know where it all went wrong with future releases. Anyway, if you have not already heard this album, then where have you been? Go get yourself a copy!
