Personally I tend to favour caution with Spiral Tribe material and am often left feeling dubious by many of their records in the sense that a lot of this gear sounds exactly what you'd imagine some homeless bum to sound like recording out of the back of a backpack. Definitely no disrespect to Spiral Tribe and the many artists who have spun of from that amazing cultural phenomenon intended. Those guys have genuinely achieved greatness in the best possible way. It's just that ultimately, something that sounds like it was recorded on a busted Walkman with failing batteries while in the throes of a bleeding Jesus experience is... exactly that. I'm just being honest.

Which doesn't really tend to matter usually, as musical appreciation is a matter of personal taste, but when people are charging your lungs and kidneys as payment, you do have to take a step back and parse the content with a little bit more scrutiny. It doesn't matter how "rare" a record is. If it sounds like the aftermath of someone's insides after a Vindaloo session having met it's grim, explosive public end too early before the emergency escape hatch could be opened... it still sounds like the fragrant aroma of a horrific post-traumatic Vindaloo crash disorder.

But worry not about the three records in this most excellent trilogy (well, there are others, but the first three are a definite set that share identical label art). These are well recorded, excellent tracks. "Monotone" is the pick of the litter. Hard, dark spooky Techno filled with voices telling you bad things just the way grandma used to make.
