December 5, 2002

At the time this was released, both Scanner and DJ Spooky were past the top of their game, and approaching a change in styles that was less abstract and more predictable. It would be nearly impossible for this release to live up to the promise it would have had if it had been forcast to come out in 1995. By 1999-2000, unfortunately, both Scanner and Spooky seemed to have left their best material behind.
