The records do sound excellent if played at 33 RPM. Plus they do not contain any information pertaining to the speed. However, the songs sound the same as the versions on the CD if played at 45 RPM. Is this speed for the vinyl versions only an inference or is it documented anywhere on the record. Maybe, my scrutiny was still not thorough enough.

Some quiet electronic jazziness with live drumming, courtesy of Burnt Friedman and Jaki Liebezeit. “Rhein Rauf,” the first track, exemplifies what’s to come on the rest of the album, <I>Secret Rhythms</I>. “Shades of Soddin’ Orion” has some ominous guitar strums with little percussive plops. The trifecta of “Obscured by 5,” the remix by Nonplace Urban Field (Friedman himself), and the extended version have a cumulative effect - - the extended version, especially, wraps things up nicely, utilizing the silence between the drums. Overall, however, the album drifts by a little too easily, without really grabbing one’s attention. A bit more focus for the next collaboration might be in order.
