During my LPD phase, I'm starting to believe this band can do no wrong. Some have noticed a strong Van der Graaf Generator influence on this album. I'd have to agree, because it's fairly obvious Edward Ka-Spel was going through a Peter Hammill phase (most of us do at some point), while working on From Here You'll Watch the World Go By. So, if you're a fan of VdGG, then you'll find probably find this one appealing.

Not a disappointment for once! Okay, I was expecting it to be shitty so saying it isn't is hardly praise but it's actually a couple of semi-decent ambient tracks that could've easily come from one of his two albums from the mid-00s.

My country of birth showing all these British and American urban electronic guys where the real future is. This stuff is fucking mental and awesome. Footwork, juke, Chicago house, and general neo-psychedelia is in debt to this.


Ooh that is GREAT
Don't know how I stumbled upon it but, yeah, mental one of a kind shit...totally jamming

I think Burial is a proper busted flush now. What he did was genuinely great, but he never managed to successfully move on, and instead released two tracks a year.

Vinyl version, rather than this CD cover. An absolute classic.

I agree. Even on first listen, I could easily place this right along side Aerial. "Misty" and "Lake Tahoe" should rank among her finest tracks ever.

Almost bought the re-release vinyl of that album the other day, but saved my money to preorder The Great Annihilator on LP.

I've got the CD reissue, but only because I've never tracked down the original release. I gather the mix to The Great Annihilator is going to be quite different, I've heard Mind/Body/Light/Sound on youtube, which is probably my favourite track off the album, and that's certainly changed. I doubt I'll bother with it though, unless I see it particularly cheap. I love the original, I've no need for an alternate mix.

Agreed with that being the best track off the album. I had no idea they had changed the mix. That's almost an entire let down. The original mix is absolutely perfect and among the greatest experiences offered from experimental rock and post-punk.
