The very opening of the cd reminded me of Negativland. To me, that was quite pleasing.

The first track picks up with some old skool sounding computer voice samples. The music tends to be in the same vain. The samples are in experimental abundance, and tend to stray away from the environmental ambience that FAX is known for. We are graced with a beat and a very nice melody that comes and goes. This is a track that can annoy some people, and please others. I am rather pleased with it. It is the melody that makes the track work.

Track 2 becomes a short interlude of minimalism, unlike the first track, but making a nice connection to the third track. The spoken word samples and background music in the third track entitled "Angry Man", and superb. The music is somewhat on the environmental trip, but with a little more psychedelica thrown in. At 6:09 into track three, it sounds like a Doors sample which no sooner graces its presence, and abruptly ends. The track takes many forms, and each with an experimental tinge.

Track 6 breaks into a more drum and bass beat, but not as prevalent as the typical techno of that genre. It remains hypnotic and rather consistent. This becomes a funky techno tune with a Tom and Jerry piano flare. This is my favorite track of the album."I have no psychiatrist and I don't need a psychiatrist." Maybe so Mr. Cue!

This album will not please many I would suspect, but it's a great romp into the lesser-recognized albums on Fax.
