Bet you never thought you could sleep to Throbbing Gristle..
Irony Value | BAYOU | 04/12/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Very nice to see this back in print--it's a wonderful example of the softer, gentler, white noise side of TG--it still has a few vaguely ominous moments, but in general works just as well as a noise generator for inducing sleep. It's a bedtime favorite at our house, ranking alongside Sigur Ros, Cocteau Twins, My Bloody Valentine, etc.

This was recorded live in the studio in one take in March of 1979, but you would never know that if not told--it's layered and dynamic yet hypnotic.

It's one long track, but that is as should be. You should listen to the whole thing at once, though you certainly do not need to remain conscious for all of it.

It's a decent first TG experience for the uninitiated. If you like this, try Heathen Earth next."

"This is in my opinion almost accessible of the TG albums. I love it. It consists more or less of one extremely long but varied sequence of sounds and melodies that you will find recurring through their discography.It is almost ambient in parts and is really beautiful."

"This is basically one 40 minute TG session. Comes with some writing from each member of their thoughts on the TG phenomenon. Lots of loud Cosey guitar, some rythms come and go. No lyrics. I would say this is essential for a TG fan, but get '2nd annual report', 'DOA', '20 Jazz Funk Greats' or 'Heathen Earth' b4 you get this. Those are the classics.

Then get this, 'Mission of Dead Souls', 'TG's Greatest Hits', 'Part 2', 'Mutant TG', 'In the Shadow of the Sun'."
