This is a diverse collection of intense and dreamy instrumental tracks by Cevin Key and Dwayne Goettel, the gifted musician-programmers of Skinny Puppy. Fully exploiting their vast reserves of sound-creation methods and material, Key and Goettel make every piece an intriguing experience for the ears and emotions alike. Moods range from eerie and haunting ("Whitewax," "Clocks") to darkly upbeat ("Saved," "Come in Piece"). Tracks such as "Pressurehead" and "The Moodswing" are more atmospheric in nature, while "Hiding" and "I.D.L." reveal non-Western musical influences. The most consistent technical feature from one track to another is the extensive use of arcane spoken-word fragments. --Mark McCleerey

"You can't help but feel diverse emotions throughout this cd. This is only odd because most industrial-esque music is drilled down to being mainly anger-fueled noise and such. This is far from the case with this album. Tracks range from menacing and brooding (The Moodswing)to energeticly dancey (Father Don't Cry) to the ethnic swan-cry I.D.I. I must say that every track on this cd is genuinely good with a completeness on it's own as well as making the entire album a more complete work. My personal favorite off this album is without a doubt F862. I get chills every time I listen to this song, it just contains this otherworldly beauty that makes you feel as if you are anything and everything; it is truly a spiritual experience. Listen to this song and try to tell me you don't get chills all over. The whole cd is good but I would pay $50 for F862 alone. Probablly more :)"

"Cevin Key and Duane Goettel were keeping busy, while in Skinny Puppy, and while Ogre was working with Al Jourgensen from Ministry during the creating process of Rabies. From 1987 to 1990 the two made some of the most infectiously addictive electronic music ever. First off if you like Skinny Puppy then you must get this. The sampling on this album is stellar. There really isnt any singing but there are lots of voices throughout. This album has a very haunting, mellow charm to it and really is a classic Wax Trax release, especially now that Duane Goettel has died. If you like dark electronic with awesome sampling then get this...one of the genre's best"
Almost as perfect as it gets...

"As I type this I am listening to this album for probably the thousandth time. It is expertly crafted, and so incredibly intricate and well-executed, that I still crave it, 10 years or so after I first heard it. I can only say that about a few other albums, and they are the Greats, such as The Dark Side of the Moon and the Orb's U.F.Orb. Most of the songs here are completely timeless, and all are fantastic examples of what electronic music can and should be.
As for the Skinny Puppy references, I am still a bit of an SP fan (though not nearly as rabid about it, no pun intended) and never drew comparisons between SP and DT. This was a fantastic and refreshing tangent, genuinely crystalline in its precision, and soul, oddly.
You absolutely must listen to this with decent headphones at least once before you die."
