Track six makes this whole cd worth it for me. Dated sounding techno house but above average for what was out in those days. Innovative at times yet not with earth shattering new sounds. Some are familiar Namlook ambient interlude type segments. A mix of ... See full review

The deep yet uplifting melodic beatless ambience builds slowly into a dark enlightened world, driftly wandering around, drowning in hypnotic minimalism. Captivating and commanding. Isolating. Repetitive yet not montonous. One of the better Fax releases.

A very underrated Fax Records release and often forgotten. An album with beautiful captivating ambience and somewhat disjointed yet melodic IDM beats in that CUE sorta way. The track "Roswell" tracking in at 38 minutes long, never seems to linger to ... See full review

Me too. Saw them live at the Limelight in NYC. July 1995 I think. Sprial Realms opened up for them and were amazing too. 16 Deluxe started the show that evening. One of the most memorable shows I've ever witnessed.

This album certainly is an experimental Middle Eastern Bryn Jones glitchy funked up tribal trance beats kind of dub thing. It is beautiful packaging with or without the coin. One of the better Muslimgauze disc's out there.
posted a review of Muslimgauze - Blue Mosque. about 1 year ago
This album truly is remarkable and defining. It is Bryn Jones during the height of his music. The music is more focused, less glitchy and significantly more laid back. Ambient and a tribal hypnotic middle eastern trance journey, minimal, yet powerful. ... See full review

Dated, absolutely! But when you listen to this and realize that it is off of the Fax label, by two artists you are not familiar with, you will be somewhat amazed. It is so not typical of Fax and its early days of trance/hard trance/acid. I still enjoy ... See full review

This review is spot on in regards to track one. It really strays from the typical ambient music Fax Records is so famous for and finds itself in a more experimental zone (without being disjointed).
