Nearly-matched sparse tones quietly ringing kching hring hring in interference, stretches of repetition vs. polyrhythm reminiscent of Steve Reich, and blue progressions chilled over ice. Excellent.

Brilliant performance overall—not to downplay the other performers or to downplay his other appearances, Otomo shines as genius here!

This album is incredible, astounding, top-notch. My original copy left long ago—and this repressing is not very good. With my setup and the way I treat records, records typically never get old—decades and innumerable plays later they are still strong,... See full review

Jute had a fretboard converted to quartertones ... which allows for some very alien-sounding metal. I've been listening to this repeatedly, becoming familiar with initially foreign chord progressions, then blissfully drowning in the chaos facilitated... See full review

Don't konw about that, but NOT4(BUT 5) is apparently a spin on Sonic Youth Not 1 (But 2)--which was probably a spin on something else ;-)

This album still takes me back to places I had never visited. This pressing, however, sounds like garbage! An authoritative repress is yet desired.

So many interference patterns that as you move about the house, the tempo changes, while the pitch remains constant. Beautiful, but I only wish my dreams were this calm.

Slow, hard, brutal, and obliteratingly negative. I've loved this album since always; it's medicinal to listen to again at any time. For literary types, this might be a sonic counterbalance to Pessoa ... hard to imagine something more stripped down... See full review

Seventeen years later it's sharp as it ever was but only deepens in funk, increasingly so upon every listen ad infinitum. Core. This is an extremely annoying album that is harmful to both you and your environment. It is taxing and wonderful.

If your copy has a mirror image of the cover it is a unique release and you should submit it to the database instead of making a comment. Cheers

This record is amazing. The cover is also beautiful, and fitting to the music. However the "old style hardback jacket" is too large for a normal poly slip, and does not leave enough room to get the record in and out without probable bunching of the... See full review

It looks evil or ironic, yet is in earnest. Studio quality, set beyond Heaven and Hell, wherein Satan has resumed his original place in the celestial hierarchy and all has been restored as One. Horrifying.

This was a masterpiece when released on CD; on wax it is unreal. Invite it to push the limits of your soundsystem and let it wreck your home.

A compilation of masterpieces absolutely, but this is not "dark ambient." Whatever it is, though, thank goodness Type is reissuing these on vinyl! And Type does call these "dark ambient" - times change.
