One of the most original and therefore well-recognised work among Laswell's vast catalogue. A group of artists read pieces of the story of Hassan Ibn Sabbah, a legendary outcast and chief of nomadic assassins in the ancient Middle East. The voices are amazing (think Iggy Pop for starters), and backed up with Laswell's groovy bass and drums give you one great an experience in music. Spoken word ambient pieces are usually risky, certainly not for a casual listening, however this one is worth as many attempts as required to get the feeling of its humid, illusionary atmosphere - all the hints are there.

Once I have been listening to this album while browsing through my colleagues' pictures, and once for a good couple of seconds the lines of the story corresponded to what have I been seeming on the pictures! It's all about hasheesh, amazing.
