Although I knew of THIS HEAT, I had apparently never heard them. Without reading the accompanying blurb, I spotted a leaning towards FAUST (“Krautrock” - that great-but-infuriating-intro-that-goes-nowhere track). I’m no expert, but I kept spotting a whole plethora of others who either influenced or seemed to be influenced by THIS HEAT - THE POP GROUP, early SCRITTI POLITTI, WIRE, Hell, even SUN RA’s in there somewhere.
They have a novel, and sometimes grating approach to how they mix the music, and how one track relates to another - the overall structure. On one track percussion full forward, on another, mixed so far back it hardly even adds anything to the ambience.

How can you get bored with an album it’s almost impossible to become familiar with. More than a free-form rock / anti-rock, something much, much more.
