Although flawed in places, this collection of ambient noise is nevertheless a fine product, and in many places a testament to the brilliance and/or complete and utter insanity of its creators, although there are other times when the obvious minimalism of some of them conflicts with the insipidly bombastic pretentiousness of the others. The pulsating eeriness of tracks like Grotesque Insideness and Tremendously Sick Horror Art Display, and the full-on sonic onslaught that is the opening minute of A Sudden Moment of Private Demonic Psychodrama are excellent, as are all the tracks that remain formless and atmospheric. The album’s more structured tracks, such as So Successfully Evil and Inspired By Long Hours Of Continuous Repetitive Deep Irritations And Uncontrollable Agony, fail miserably, and remind one more of someone who wanted to make electronic music, but couldn’t be bothered to write a decent song and tried to pass their keyboard fiddling off as ‘experimental’.
