    The first track on the A' side is a hammering, smashing onslaught of battering beat music almost guaranteed to kick your perception of what is 'dance' on it's arse - an ever-changing switchback series of thumping impressions, sequenced into a primative representation of a 'song'. The next track is an express fast electronic dance music with serpentine sequencers like whips, this pushes the BPM way up so many sequential rhythmic devices are like fast FX flowing by. BOURBONESE QUALK prove they have surpassed the dance scene with it's Acid House & Rave, and have accelerated the cyberkinetic flow of noise images even further, creating an audio- tactile pattern of rhythmic waves,
    The first track on the B' side is another fast & frantic rhythmic piece which thunders along with a primative facsimile of 'tune', but far more emphasis on 'effect', reducing the necessity for composed, hooky music, replacing it instead with a series of electronic noises - clusters of notes, splinters of sound, all flying off at appointed moments in such a way as to give it a recognizable structure, The final track follows a very similar style, although here a tune - a simplistic two-note thing - creates a body for the echoing, shattering, crashing sounds to split away from in pyrotechnical wonderment. BO QU have certainly changed direction, and this new hyper-electro-dance sound suits them - almost infinitely variable, sometimes cold, sometimes dark, but always, ALWAYS interesting.
