I think he was playing marbles and sampling the noises whilst making this album,

His best album by far.

A thing of beauty.

Hood's genius is he goes beyond techno as just an assemblage of samplers and drum machines which create a sound, to actively creating Music. The word 'minimal' is often used in connection with his work but Hood's genius here is to create variety and produce something interesting and engaging for the listener. The word classic now seems to mean 'golden oldie' but Internal Empire is a classic record in the sense that it is first class.

Minus is exceptionally brilliant. Its amazing to think that music as minimal as this can sustain the attention span of the listener, yet the subtle variations that develop over the length of the track keeps the rhythm moving. A masterclass in space, structure and composition.

Yes, the cat# TRE02 is scratched into all of this series. There is also to read the speed, 45rpm. On the labels is printed by mistake 33rpm. Was very confusing because some of the tracks were produced in very strange speed for this time.
Minus is one of my favourite minimal tracks of all time. If you take two copies you can play them for hours - GREAT!
