CD Reviews

Well worth the price!

"Three CDs for under $20... you do the math! This is almost an essential buy for fans of experimental. Almost because it's not the best compilation out there, but it probably is the best for its price. The first disc is all ambient material from artists such as Lull (Mick Harris), Yen Pox, Vidna Obmana and Mandible Chatter. The second disc is primarily noise-based and includes very loud pieces from Masonna, Con-Dom, Haters, Brume, Smell & Quim, Illusion of Safety, etc. The last disc is more various and ranges in style, usually falling somewhere between the first two discs and usually more musical than either one. Release is one of the more interesting domestic labels we have, and this compilation serves as a hefty testament to that."
Only the first cd is any good.

"What is this stuff for anyway? Sound torture?

The first cd is ambient "space music" although it ends on a light industral note. CD 2 pick up on the industrial part but degenerates into torturous noises and screaming. CD 3, forget it. I had to listen to these in order to test them for skipping since the discs looked like they may skip.

I felt like smashing my player getting through disc 3. Since my cd player is a 3 disc player, it was nearly heavenly when Clay Aiken's cd just happened to come on after that 3rd cd was over!!!!!!!!! Folks, if Megadeth came on it would have been a relief!
It is also good that I did not listen to all three discs at once!!!!!
Now for the price of a used copy, disc one is worth it for the ambient music. Maybe use the other two for Halloween parties or to torment someone for pi--ing you off.
Speaking of torment, opening the packing is a torment."
