I've owned this album in some shape or form for many years; although I've always liked it, I seem to return to "The Voice Of America" far more often. But I know that some records take a little longer before you finally "get it".

Six months ago, I would never have imagined that I would ever use the phrase "Music To Receive Chemotherapy To", but that's exactly how I would describe it now. One of the things which annoyed me during my treatment was that I found it increasingly difficult to find suitable music to listen to. I have very broad tastes, and I tried everything from classical, ambient, 50s jazz and 60s psychedelia, to progressive rock, techno, drum & bass, metal and punk. Nothing quite worked, and rapidly became unlistenable.

But towards the end of my third 5-day hospital admission, I decided to give this a spin. For some bizarre reason, it just worked - I really can't understand why, but chemotherapy is somewhat uncomfortable, worrying, anxiety-inducing and occasionally even frightening: words which could perhaps be used to describe the sounds here.

I would never wish a cancer diagnosis on anyone, but if you ever find yourself in my situation, give this disc a chance and you may see what I mean! :)

Probably one of the darkest full-length debuts ever released by a group (well, maybe Throbbing Gristle might qualify as a close comparison). There was simply nothing else like it at the time of its release and it still baffles new listeners to this date. Fave tracks include 'No Escape' (a Seeds' cover), 'Photophobia', 'On Every Other Street' & 'Fourth Shot'. Recommended!

Very experimental and quite frightening at times. Listen to "Photophobia" in the dark for an good taste of this.
