      A fantastic album like this needs a repress. Come on Warp!

        Needs a decent reissue. No way i'm paying more than a €100. Get to work Warp crew! ;-)

          I could hardly give this away 8 years ago, now £100 for a decent copy! Nice album, pleasant music, nothing too exciting, but a good, relaxing vibe throughout - one of Richard's better offerings.

            So good I bought multiple copies on different formats. RIP RHK, always 20 years ahead of the pack.

              Kirk didn't manage to fully step into the 90's with this album, it is too much stuck in the 80's. And at almost 80 minutes it is far too long, trimming away some of the less focused tracks would have made it a stronger listening experience. The cover art is great though, one of the best sleeves on Warp.

                This is a great album. Shame about the cover art.

                  so good. listening in 2020 makes me wish I had a time machine and could go play a set in the chill out room.

                    Buyers beware for this edition (no SID code) sadly experienced the disc rot destiny.

                      Kirk was the first major figure to join the young #IDM-winning movement under the wing of the #Warp label. He was already known all over the world, as part of the Cabaret Voltaire group, as one of the founders industral, but as soon as something interesting began to emerge in his native Sheffield, he plunged into new experiments. Forming the acid-house project Sweet Exorcist, he published one of the first releases of Warp Records. After a while, all the hang-up of the label was carried away by #ambient_techno, and concentrated on long-running publications, which was not typical for techno music. And, following his colleagues, Richard decides to release his solo album, which later became a classic of electronic music.

                        Seminal work, incredible at the time and still far reaching more than twenty years later. A must have
