A more subtle side of Muslimgauze

"When I got this album I thought it was kind of boring; decent but not worth my time. For some reason I started listening to it again about a year later, and man was I wrong. I love this stuff, and it's safe to say that I've never heard anything quite like it.Bryn Jones successfully holds together these incredibly prophetic and ominous collages of sound with rhythmic, trance inducing bass and percussion that somehow sounds incredibly Middle Eastern. Imagine, if you will, music that instantly conjures images of the windswept Saharan desert: dust devils whirl by, Arabs argue just out of clear earshot, sand blinds your eyes, all in preparation for something so terrible nothing can be spoken of it. It completely lacks the hard-hitting edge of more recent Muslimgauze, going for a more atmospheric (but not ambient) feel, and yes, I guess it's true that almost all the tracks are basically the same, but for some reason it never gets tiresome if you let yourself get sucked in."
