Hard to understand why most people find this album mediocre. I first encountered Tristan on the Twisted Records compilation Various - Demented. His track "Small Paper Squares" is easily the strongest track on it. "Audiodrome" continues this tone with fast-paced, dark Psy-Trance at it's best. It lacks the catchy melodies of artists like Shpongle or Man With No Name however and the artwork...well...lets face it - it looks like some body hole. Seriously.

This is a good album, which neatly encapsulates the dark, minimal sound which was popular at the time. A couple of the tracks fall a bit flat, but Valve and Perimeter are stormers. Agree with comment about the artwork though - it's horrible.

Tristan's first album is his best - twisted and techy dark psytrance, sometimes with housey beats. The tracks also build quite subtly towards long climaxes, or rather plateaus. Tristan always seems intent on breaking genre boundaries, an experimentalism I applaud, but it doesn't always come together to create something musically coherent. Nevertheless, this is an interesting album with good sound that was applauded in its day and may even have had some influence. After this it was downhill for Tristan's albums and 12"s. ~*~
