    This is certainly unique, certainly experimental… but what goal is it attempting to accomplish? The music is…. Largely unpleasant and Avante garde, and though the “subject matter”, which actually seem to be just absolutely random names is fresh and the material varied: it is largely compositionally…. Annoying. Very annoying. However, i can’t seem to find a reason to label it as inherently BAD. The music is very unique and well performed, if complete and utter nonsense. For lack of better appreciation or understanding, I will currently rate this piece. Lots of bongos and echoing guitar. Like new age Shoegaze. After listening to the whole album, I honestly just feel disappointed. This could have been a lot, but instead it was a lot of random fuzzy or spacy sounds without much real rhythm, coordination, or apparent focus. Definitely a letdown to be sure. To each their own, but I certainly feel this to be at the very least overhyped and overpriced by a cool cover.

    5/10.

      BACK IN THE early nineties, this was somewhat "intriguing" (standouts being: "Popol Vuh 2," "Popol Vuh 1") and i found myself listening to fsa's debut on several occasions. in the beginning. their experimental slant on things was alluring (enter: "A Silent Tide.") but as time wore on and fsa released more of the same my gaze left for things with more substance, better compositional practices and able to stand the test of time. as with most true d.i.y. projects they all fall by the wayside and lose their appeal as quickly as it came.... about the only good thing one can say about fsa - you don't need a good hi-fi kit to extract the "music" from their work. any ol' crosley will do
