This is actually a tape version of the album for review purposes - it's incomplete (it cuts out before the end on either side) and has no titles, so I cannot give you an adequate review. Having heard what they sent me, I'd like a full copy, especially on CD (which it isn't so far on) - this is one for your record collection. The leaflet which came with it has the following list I can only assume are contributors; ALIMENTAIRE, DINO OON UND KONRAD KRAFT, JOSEPH BOYS, LOTOV MULLAH AND THE FLOATING POINTS, MYNOX LAYH, NOISE CORPORATION, SEKTOR, TEMPS PERDU? & TYPE NON.
The first track on side one begins quietly with taped voice and synth hum to become something based around a simplistic 4/4 beat which gains a languid E.B.M.-type sequencer rhythm and a smorgasbord of sounds. The second track has a 'live' sound to it which complicates as it grows. It has a DOME-like rhythm driving beneath the taped voices and indistinct instruments. It's a cold and moody piece of beat Industrial, and it gets you craving for more. The third track has a white gasping rhythm over which the occasional orgiastic groan is heard. It suddenly forms into a 'proper' track, with sampled sounds running along with a drum pattern, which ceases, or decays in rough phases - just when you think it's gonna pick up into a full track, it collapses again. Track four is a dramatic piece which reminds me a little of JOY DIVISION and COCTEAU TWINS without the guitars - it sounds good, building up until... the tape ends!!!

Track one Side two is a more composed thing in a decidedly odd way - lyrics sung in French over a jerky piece of mood music with white noise beat - I'd like to know who does this as it hints at even better material. It has elements of so many different things - minimalist SLEEP CHAMBER, early EYELESS IN GAZA, so many different things, without any of then coming close enough for safe comparison. Track two is a full song on a flowing rhythm - i's got elements of Hip Hop, Rap, Toasting without sounding one jot like these musics. It's an oddball track and another that you'd like to know more about. Track three opens with metal beat forging a very unusual little track which might stand up well with TEST DEPT, SPK & EINSTÜRZENDE NEUBAUTEN - it's complex but in no way clumsy, and the sustained vocal backing adds giant dimensions to the central pattern - here be talent. Again it cuts out before it's time.

From what I've heard, this is an album well worth seeking out - top quality recordings, atmospheric Industrial-painted music and some bizarre compositions - I only wish I had been able to hear the whole thing.
