Format: Audio CD
10-track album which collects singles, album tracks, live performances, and other previously available material. Not quite as cohesive and consistent as "Hex" but a bit more varied, "Game over" is still a valuable document of the band's genre-busting approach and sound. It opens with the 4-minute "Blue", one of BP's most accessible and danceable songs, mixing mid-tempo disco rhythms with atmospheric synthesizer backing, beautiful melodies and Graham's soft, soaring voice. Very engaging, but "Three girl rhumba", a cover version which had originally appeared on the Wire tribute album "Whore", is even better: Very jazzy and laid back, with down-pitched singing and cool melodies, this sounds like a confluence between Barry White and some underground amateur band. To continue the series of great songs, "I know" paints a vivid and romantic portrait of nighttime urban landscapes, using fragile guitar chords, washes of brilliant keyboard melodies, and wistful vocals. One of the finest ballads I've ever listened to. Unfortunately, it's often downhill from there: The album's second half alternates between Cocteau Twins-like guitar tunes ("Bloodrush"), speed metal collages ("Murder City"), strangely tuneless ambient soundscapes (the 21-minute "Scum") and other undistinguished material which isn't nearly as cleverly put together as "Three girl rhumba" or "Hex". My advice: Well worth picking up for the first three songs and as a collector's item, but if you haven't bought any BP album yet, get "Hex" first.

Hex is known, among far too few, as Bark Phychosis' masterpiece and rightly. These guys created lush soundscapes on the 1994 album that require work for the listener, but the subtle dynamics make the payoff far more than the required attention

Game Over is not disimallar from Hex, except that on many numbers here, there is more of a drive to the compositions, and a lot of the added sounds are more up front than on Hex.

And then the band does a very curious thing on Game Over--rocks out. There is a number here that starts with the usual smooth ambient gambit of Bark Psychosis, but then the track bursts into a tornato of guitar noise that reminds me of some of Robert Fripp's more free form blasts. As soon as this begins, it ends, and it is back to the velvet, almost inperceptably brillant electronic sheen

This band was far too subtle, plodding and uncompromising to sell records like My Bloody Valentine or other "dream pop" bands of the 1990s, but Game Over will show you, if you give it the deverved time, why Bark Psychosis may be the best in their related genres
