"This CD took me a year to get into. It's an odd one, very simplistic-seeming and a little on the creepy tip, but after a long while it started to grow on me.Ricard H. Kirk -he and his many pseudonames- is a strange musician. His way of doing things sounds very cloistered -he drops layers in, he takes them out again, very basic operations- but his music is sophisticated, with much of the brilliance coming from the dynamics, the loud and the nearly silent and how they fuse and mingle.It takes a lot from the listener at first, an easing up on the gears, and of course it's best played on a really good system, but this is a quiet little album that's a keeper for anyone who perserveres to the point where all the shifts and changes are second nature. In a word: contemplative. Reminds me of some of the mellower Orb songs, particularly "Spanish Castles in Space." Onobtrusive but bold in spite of the fact, which is a rare, refined combination. Like good wine as opposed to good beer - it gives you a better buzz and doesn't burn your tongue."

"This is one of Kirk's best releases since CV broke up. More dub-oriented with heavy sampling of a variety of bizzare instruments and tripped out tape delays. Laid-back grooves, but complex enough to keep the listener interested. I'd recommend this album to any fan of electronic music."
Certainly strange

"This is as odd as you can get from Richard H Kirk.....known for his paranoid music filled with Cabaret Voltaire and in his early solo recordings.....this record feels rather subdued yet strangely addictive. A work of genius that it is that he can do this but you still feel ( or perhaps yearn ) for something more abrasive and paranoid. Nonetheless this is truly something something special.....just don't think it'll be in the Cabaret Voltaire style of things"
