I remember when this was about to drop in 2001 and Martin from Rubadub played us the test pressings and it sounded like a menacing storm of wind and thunder had landed, full of crackle and tension and urgency, an exciting album.

'Unordinary Realities' is, for me, as good as any electronic music I ever heard. Hard to believe that they couldn't make space for it on the original vinyl release.

C1: Electro. Gorgeous acidized vintage Detroit freak out jackin' tune. Progresses by treating the near perfect riff with a squelchy LFO that slightly unfortunately overdrives the production values of the time and arguably doesn't do enough top hit the absolute highest level. Still. [TEN]
C2: Electro. Proper, proper, proper amazing tune. Aggressively funky synth bassline. Kraftwerk-esque electronic piano simply stabbed, overlaid with the lushest sweeping synth chords then just when you think the dream is over it's beautifully reprised. [GOLDTEN]
D1: Horror Electro. While this is very well conceived, this brand of electro is just so difficult to listen to, to enjoy. It's oppressive, nightmarish and unfortunately endured. [SIX]
D2: Electro. Cute opening electro piano riff added to with various squeaks, scratches and stabs. An unsteady cacophony ensues drunkily trying to hold itself together always on the point of unraveling. Difficult, though in it's way beguiling. [SEVEN]

The 12" single also released on Supremat features 2 exclusive tracks not available on the CD or 2xLP album, plus "Do You Want To Get Down" which features on the CD versions but not the 2xLP. If you like this album, you'll need to get the 12" single too!

It is very tough to capture the magic of this incredible album in a few words. It is indeed one of the greatest Drexciyan albums to have ever been released. I have to say this release has a more normal sound than L.I.F.E. Some tracks will indeed work on any dancefloor.

As in all Stinson's work, the tracks on this record has great depth and very odd structures which makes it worth listening over and over.

As Transllusion (Stinson) said: Open Your Mind To Another Time, Place And Dimension. Feel Electronic Music In Away You May Have Never Felt Before.

These words say it all...

R.I.P. James.

Words cannot describe how fucking awesome this album is. Its one of the best of Drexciyas numerous side projects. The sheer quality and diversity of the tracks is astounding even for James Stinson.

Negative Flash and Cerebral Cortex Malfunction are great shuffling electro tracks that will work on any dancefloor.
However its Crossing Into The Mental Astroplane and Transmission Of Life that are the standout tracks for me. That quite harsh and metallic Ultradyne-esque sound with quite a glitchy feel. That sense of profound danger, urgency and alarm is something that you will not hear anywhere else.
