This is the great, epic debut. They had this amazing drag to their sound that others didn't have. Manuella Zwigman's drumming was catchy and simple which really gives a solid backing and real character base to the songs. Each album by X-mal has a unique character, this one is bleak, brilliant with no filler songs. This stands as one of the great albums of the time.

Classic debut from X-Mal, the vinyl sounds so much better than the flat CD release.
