5.0 out of 5 stars It's so digital! October 16, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This CD took me a year to get into. It's an odd one, very simplistic-seeming and a little on the creepy tip, but after a long while it started to grow on me.
Ricard H. Kirk -he and his many pseudonames- is a strange musician. His way of doing things sounds very cloistered -he drops layers in, he takes them out again, very basic operations- but his music is sophisticated, with much of the brilliance coming from the dynamics, the loud and the nearly silent and how they fuse and mingle.
It takes a lot from the listener at first, an easing up on the gears, and of course it's best played on a really good system, but this is a quiet little album that's a keeper for anyone who perserveres to the point where all the shifts and changes are second nature. In a word: contemplative. Reminds me of some of the mellower Orb songs, particularly "Spanish Castles in Space." Onobtrusive but bold in spite of the fact, which is a rare, refined combination. Like good wine as opposed to good beer - it gives you a better buzz and doesn't burn your tongue.

5.0 out of 5 stars buy this CD June 25, 1999
Format:Audio CD
This is one of Kirk's best releases since CV broke up. More dub-oriented with heavy sampling of a variety of bizzare instruments and tripped out tape delays. Laid-back grooves, but complex enough to keep the listener interested. I'd recommend this album to any fan of electronic music.

4.0 out of 5 stars Certainly strange January 25, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is as odd as you can get from Richard H Kirk.....known for his paranoid music filled with Cabaret Voltaire and in his early solo recordings.....this record feels rather subdued yet strangely addictive. A work of genius that it is that he can do this but you still feel ( or perhaps yearn ) for something more abrasive and paranoid. Nonetheless this is truly something something special.....just don't think it'll be in the Cabaret Voltaire style of things
