"Regrets" is appropriate as a b-side as it is nothing exceptional. "Solvent" is a magnificent techy roller that really stands out.

This release is so horrible that I felt compelled to comment... Cliche 808 beats mixed thinly with supremely obnoxious vocal samples that just repeat over and over and over and over and over. Seriously, anyone who is a fan of Critical/Modulations or ... See full review

There's some lovely sweeping melodies in "Ziggurat" and the same solid production work we've all come to expect from Spor, but for my money this falls painfully short of the impact and creativity of virtually all his other releases.

"From Deep Space" takes us back to the familiar stripped-down funk of Phace and Misanthrop in a big way. The trio of producers aren't trying to forge a lot of new ground on this release, but they've managed to expand on their own sound and the genre of ... See full review

This album is all about track 4, "Addict"- this tune slams relentlessly from beginning to end with some of the most impressive, desperate fury I've ever laid ears on.
