People familiar with Mick Harris' experimental work with Scorn, Trace Decay or Quiot should quickly place this album in their collection. This collaboration with Neil Harvey can best be described as Zander (the Scorn album, not the character from Buffy the Vampire Slayer) meets Roni Size's drum machine. High tempo drum beats mixed with synthesized bass and Lull-like soundscapes populate this album.

If you are a fan of the genre populated by Mick Harris side projects, Bill Laswell's immense catalogue of work, and the small host of other experimentalists, this album is for you. It's a good listen with a wide range of sounds, so that not every song sounds the same. If you like your music a little more organic and with vocals, this might not be to your liking.
