one of few warp tapes i had back in the early 90s. this one however was just a experimental achievment on how he used this album without alot of bottem end , except on a few tracks .. But this was inbetween the trip hop wave at the time and it did work together with alot of sounds at the time .

if you were lucky enough to hear this when it came out, it almost certainly made a deep impression on you. Not totally sure if it's aged as well as some of the two lone swordsmen stuff or some of weatherall's remixes, but it's one of my all time favorites. still sounds otherworldly

Chapel Street Market 9am was used to stunning effect on the Channel 4 (UK) show The Trip back in 1999. Lots of old NASA footage with an electronica/IDM soundtrack. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Trip_(1999_TV_series)

Is this a sick joke?
Two days ago you could pick up this lp for £25 / £30.........
Andy passed away. All the vinyl was removed, only to be reposted with a crazy price tag.
These people trying to profit from this great mans work should be utterly ashamed of themselves!

I pulled this one out today and listened to it for the first time in many years. When I first heard it in the late 90's I thought it was interesting but way too weird. Now that I'm a lot older and have a much wider taste in music I can recognise this as truly ahead of its time. RIP Andrew.

We should send this piece of art directly into space as representation for our planet, cause it´s one of the most intelligent things we ever created..

This is a smashing record, felt to me that the Sabres were getting into their trip-hop and incorporating a bit of that sound, there’s a couple of tracks on here that don’t sound a million miles away from Mick Harris/Scorn, and some nice samples here and there, nice use of My Bloody Valentine’s Soon. Nothing too dark going on here, a fun “spooky” electronic record with one foot drenched in dub. I wish the bass was thumping though, oddly tin sounding at times but I do love it and return to it regularly since the day it came out.

This is not a dance album, for sure. Way too abstract and out there to ever have any success on a dance floor.

I can't say I'm a fan. I like IDM with jazz or classical undertones, atmospheric, moody, contemplative music, rather than heavily sampled synths that are mixed together to form some eccentric concoction of sounds. When IDM begins to loose its human feeling and starts sounding too machine-like then I begin to lose interest.
