The mere fact that this made it to vinyl is a miracle. In a good way. I picked this up new in a record shop in Colorado Springs, CO in 1986, and how it made it's way to me in that far-flung corner of the earth is yet another anomaly. The sound quality mentioned in the previous comments never bothered me much, maybe because this album is a document of obscure sound experiments from beyond the fringe in a pre-digital era. That some of this stuff made it magnetic tape at all, and even then to vinyl is a gift. This is a collection of exotica that creates a unified aura of surreal weirdness hard to find in those days. The NWW track is solid, obviously the big name here, and surely the reason I plunked down probably $12 to take this gem home with me. Stapleton's track memorably contains a sample from Eraserhead, and is sunk deep in side 2, cementing the sounds heard thus far: swirling electronic windstorms, detached looping vocal samples, and sometimes heavy-handed attempts at the rejection of "sucessful music". The Psy Field track "Baby Poison" is one on of my faves on the comp, with it's incessant demand to "shut up and tell me if you poisoned my baby!" Or something like that. Haha. The other angle on this compilation is the sex/religious thing with the solid Sleep Chamber+Women of the SS 1-2 punch, that I always felt I should not let be heard coming out of my bedroom, as a 15-year-old in 1986.
Overall a unique, vinyl compilation of mostly obscure, often-cassette-only, experimental electonic sound artists from the early-mid 80s.

Horrible pressing quality. Lots of crackle especially the second half of side 2. I listened to several yet unplayed copies, they were all the same.
