Truly weird
Travis Miller | Shepherdstown, WV United States | 10/26/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I found a cassette copy of this album in the cutout bin at Camelot Music when I was a teenager. (That's also where I discovered a lot of other great bands, like Cabaret Voltaire, Wire, DAF, and Severed Heads...but I digress.) It delighted me then, and it continues to delight me now.I've heard a lot of weird music in my time, and this album is still utterly unique. It's largely musique concrete, consisting of hundreds of samples woven together, very rhythmic, and very German.About half the songs have lyrics - some sung in English, and some in German. I don't understand German, but the English lyrics are bizarrely Dadaesque. There's a definite undercurrent of silliness, but also a darker thread running through the album, making the whole experience something like watching a Rube Goldberg machine while on acid.Trust me - you've never heard anything remotely like this. This album is a must for fans of leftfield music and experimental electronics."
