Fully agree with the previous review, the tracks range from excellent to masterpiece. My favourite is that Go Hiyama tune where at about the 1'30'' mark, in the middle of these frantic broken beats with industrial sounds, he adds these soft, round, slightly muted synth chords that would be at home on a melodic minimal track... Brilliant!

One of my all-time favorite techno releases to date. The tracks are dark, sinister, wicked and a lot of fun.

Shift is a killer and remarkable, little track hell-bent on destroying everything in its path. With an addicting sound and groaning melody to match itself, the beats come quick and precise and match everything perfectly. It is by far, some of Takaaki Itoh's best work and is very, very unlike some techno tracks that like to drag on with the same rhythm for quite some time. That being said, this goes along with the entire album. Simple and Simplicity is another cool track, as I find this one to be a little more weaker than the rest but still very interesting. Although it uses quite a bit of looping, it definitely makes great driving/background music and is filled with unparalleled synths.

Of The Flesh being the longest track on the album, some would expect this to be the slowest and most dull one of the entire set, but no. This is actually the most complex one out of all of them, as the sound is always changing which is actually even more of a blast! The quality of this track is yet simply unimaginable. Blunt Weapon is probably the darkest track on the album and one of the most catchy, maniacal techno tracks I know. The combination of the wavy synths and slick beats are a mouthful. Perfect music for intense situations in films.

That being said, I would love to buy and own this album at the right price if people weren't selling it with the shipping so darn expensive as I live in the US.
