Notes

The CD packaging specifies the fifth track name as "Cassandra Geminni". However, the artist website and the vinyl release of this album specify its name as "Cassandra Gemini". The movements of this track (Tarantism / Plant A Nail In The Navel Stream / Faminepulse / Multiple Spouse Wounds / Sarcophagi) listed here do not align with the track splits on CD (tracks 5-12).

The inside back cover gives the lyrics to a track called "Frances The Mute" despite this track not appearing on the CD.

Sure wish that I had bought this when I saw it for sale in Stockholm, 2006. I believe it was priced for 20kr at the time. But I was traveling and didn't feel like carrying it around for several months. And I regret that decision now, given the high demand and going rate for copies these days. If anyone wants to trade a mint Frances The Mute for a still sealed Amputechture, please let me know.
