CD Reviews

I can't understand how there are only TWO reviews here.
Greg Connell | Los Angeles, CA United States | 04/23/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Okay. Buy it simply because it's the coolest thing nobody's heard about. Or because the cover is so cool. Or because of the lineup. Or because the names of the songs are funky. Or because the reviews are good. Oh, don't care, why, just check it out. It's a deep, dark groove designed for late-night sonic mind-f**ks. Trip with this album.If you want an idea of what it is, I'm not the guy to do it. I listen to everything from Leadbelly to Autechre, Digable Planets to Ani DiFranco and everything in between, but I have no place to categorize this. I would say, however, if you've arrived here via Buckethead, approach with caution--his guitar wizardry is kept tastefully to the task at hand: a spacey, down-tempo, evil jam. I think people coming from the area of Aphex Twin, Plaid, and Squarepusher would most immediately dig this album. Though it is not like any of those artists, really.Just check it out."
A very strange CD - ambient music mix
Greg Connell | 07/09/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Listening to this CD (if it were not for some dubbed in voice overs) would be like listening to the sound track of a good horror movie.If you are going for the ambient horror music mix this is 5 star CD. On the negative side, some of the tracks sound downright evil."

"I've been an avid dub fan and collector for twenty years. This was an unexpected suprise. It's a wonderful blend of the reggae pioneers sound with a killer first world flavor; all done with a seemingly effortless ability to weave a coherent spell from one cut to the next."
