5.0 out of 5 stars One of a kind home-listening dance music March 8, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Simply put, this album is indescribable. At first listen it may appear that some tracks are incomplete or amateurish, but after listening to the album from beginning to end a few times you begin to see that this album is really something more. The songs are short and sometimes only snippets, but the entire album flows wonderfully and each song still manages to be filled with emotion and imagination. Tribal and dance rhythms mix with weird scales and harmonies to create a new sort of techno world music. Vivid images are conjured up; ancient tribes, Egyptian gods and kings, long journeys... within this man lives the souls of millions of our ancestors, all channeled through a modern mind with modern technology into some of the most original, imaginative, and human electronic music I've ever heard. The songs merely pry open the insides of our minds long enough for us to catch a glimpse of the wonders inside, and then move on before we grow accustomed to them. His influences are many, but they do not seem to be drawn from other musicians, but rather from many cultures and out of a reverent respect for the world and an understanding of humanity's place in it. I guess that sounds pretty cheesy and maybe I'm reading something into this that you won't, but that's what his music does for me. As a whole, it's certainly not like any other techno I've heard, and I've heard a fair share. Some people may not like it, but I think it's a must-have for any open-minded music fan. I can't help but feel that this guy is in touch with something great.

2.0 out of 5 stars Give me no roses March 2, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
After being into Warp label artists for a long time, this album was the first grave disappointment for me. This is a very inconsistent and weird collection of sketches and snips that doesn't stand up to such great electronic listening albums as "Bytes", "Spanners", and "Parallel". It's an interesting idea, running in the same vein as Brian Eno's "Music for films I-III" series, but it comes out very boring. Not a complete failure, but concerning Black Dog's stunning discography, this album is barely more than filler.

5.0 out of 5 stars superb September 30, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I really didn't know what to expect when i was buying this album on recommendation a couple of years ago because it my was my first Black Dog album but i was thrilled the moment i heard it.This is an album of a man with an incredible imagination and talent.It makes you wonder "how does he do it?" at times like on a couple of warped oriental tracks (who cares about the titles!).He must have lived a looong time in Lebanon or Egypt or something (but apparently he didn't as far as i know).I know it because i am from that region.It soundtracked one of my most pleasurable period of my life and i still cannot keep myself from listening to it.This man's a genius and this album is a gem.

2.0 out of 5 stars eno would not be proud November 4, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
this album is pretty damn silly. first off - if your going to link yourself to Eno whether it's a joke or not (i really can't tell) then you better deliver the goods. the pieces are generally short (like eno's music for films) but they usually don't go anywhere and certainly don't leave you wanting more. there are a couple of decent moments worth wading through some garbage to get to but this CD will soon be at my local used CD store. maybe it'll be worthwhile for someone if they cough up $5. oh - there are a couple of tablets on the back jacket (maybe Sumerian?) that are interesting - much like the album though they don't seem to serve any purpose.
