"This is dark electro-dub, very noisy, very dark. If you like Scorn, Main, Ice and (of course) earlier Techno Animal stuff, this will be right up your alley. Fans of REAL industrial music (i.e. Throbbing Gristle, Coil, Esplendor Geometrico (hope I spelled that right)) and the Invisible Records crowd should also dig this. A horror soundtrack for late night S&M, perhaps?"

"If I could I'd probably give it 3.5 stars but I'll round up because of the originality of the music. This is a collaboration between Alec Empire (of Atari Teenage Riot fame) and Techno Animal. If you have hear ATR let me tell you this is nothing like that. Or maybe it is. Imagine ATR making an ambient CD. None of the soothing sounds and music to put you to ease; Instead this mixes hard breaks and beats with odd noises here and there, while keeping a slow down tempo beat. If you listen to this while trying to sleep, you might get some nightmares. If you're interested in expanding your boundaries and like other solo Alec Empire stuff, this is the CD for you."
