Along with the bended credit card, which to me seemed like a canvas stand with a neon bulb attached in a darkened room from afar, the track titles and of course the linguistically related but otherwise contrasting and brilliant sonic travel through the depths of space, I believe that, if at all, one photograph would have sufficed. Adding them all raises the question whether, beneath this assumed criticism of commercialism, lies itself a questionable celebration for one of its exploitative excrescences, namely exhibitionism and perhaps prostitution.

Listening to this album the second time now. The first 3 tapes take the cake for me.. I'd really love to have these on vinyl..
**Okay so Varg- Story of K is on so many best of the year lists... Star Alliance is my choice, def in my top albums this year.

My initial 'Attributes' tape was missing the left channel entirely, messaged Posh Isolation and received a replacement free. Hit them up if any of your tapes have dubbing issues.

4 tapes would have been nice. 6 makes it almost annoying because of how many of the tracks flow in the same vein of emotion and sound choice? Like the constant high frequency train-coming-to-a-screeching-halt sound( best I can put it) and many short narrative field recording/overdub tracks. I guess I feel underwhelmed given the massive 6 tape box set? Maybe I was expecting it to be longer. I feel 4 would have sufficed and flowed better without so much interruption of stopping to flip over tapes/change tapes... but maybe that's the point given the concept of the album.
