The movie samples scattered throughout the album, especially those from the film "Dune" found on the track "Spice", add to the atmosphere of the album, creating an other-worldly feel. Even eerier is the sample used on "Basket Case", in which the exchange of "What's in the basket?" "My brother." kicks off the track.
Standouts here include "A Kind of Living", "Spice", "Basket Case (White Coat Mix)", and "Fear: The Mindkiller".
I've yet to meet anyone that doesn't like this album. If you're into breakbeats, techno, or dance music in general, don't be put off by the fact that this album is 10 years old. It sounds fresher than 95% of the drivel that's being released today. This album isn't the easiest to find in record stores, so I recommend ordering a copy today!
If you're a fan of the atrocious 1984 "Dune" film starring Kyle Maclachlan or Frank Herbert's classic novel "Dune," and if you enjoy techno/house/rave music -- and I realize that neither of these are givens -- you'll love this album. Only a few of the tracks are clearly "Dune" or sci-fi oriented (there's also an "Outer Limits" track), but all assemble judiciously chosen samples, the usual strong beat, cool electronic/tape effects (some of which remind me of bits from the Beatles "Revolver" and "Magical Mystery Tour"), and a good dose of humor.
I'm not a big techno fan but this album is REALLY GOOD. As a geek, I appreciate the sampling from Dune and, if I'm not mistaken, a couple of Outer limits Episodes.
Lots of really great tracks which is very rare for any album, let alone a techno album.
With 'Basket' Eon lead the way of Flat-Note House. Now known as Dark House.
While the musicians had strong roots in the development of the House sound, destructive intonations seemed irresistable to the doomed. Flat notes spun over breakneck speed sent crowds deep into the darkest corners of their consciousness. As Dune samples wheeled through danceable knowledge of pain and fear, surviving listeners raised to pillars over heaven. An ability to be was no longer sought.
Calm loops in chaos kept even the innocent in the balms of evil. Skimming beneath warm clouds of a never before seen stomp, Eon introduced true madness to a scene already riddled with insanity - and challenged its ability to maintain.
Stomping crashes took every spun raver into the flat ranges of desperation, and raised the power of both literary wisdom and the drive of tribal pursuit in a music that should be compared to the dark guitar work of early Sabbath. With the power of House, HERE is secret few sane hear.
In 1992 I'm not sure Eon knew what they were doing, but an entire legion of House opened because of their foresite. Because of them, Nwafor and Stow exist.
In the stew of House, Void Dweller should be considered a point of origin.
Make madness as you shall. Should you listen to Dweller diligently, here ever after I wish you, do your best to keep any sense of sense.
its an all around bad ... cd, full of all the elements i find
attractive in good 'ol hardcore techno.
this is a must buy i recommend it for everyone everywhere.

I listened to this back in high-school during the Mutant Dance Party on WHFS in Baltimore...so I bought this. Why?
THE SPICE MUST FLOW!
I bought this strictly because of the song Spice. If you like house music, you can't beat it! The rest of the album is good too, but this one track will always be my favorite.Published on November 8, 2010 by ChaiGirl

Back in the very early 90's you could not go to a club where the "Spice" was not at least played sometime during the night, the pounding bassline maxed out most soundsystems and... Read morePublished on July 5, 2007 by Marc
