Reviewed by James Stafford

A departure from the norm for these stalwarts of industrial music. Blacklight Records describe this release as "pure ambient atmospheric material," but be warned, it is very experimental. The intention seems to rather than to give a melody or steady rhythm. However, at points the experimentation with noises and samples seems to detract from the overall effect. For instance, the third track, "Attic Friends", sounds like six minutes of someone rummaging around in a warehouse before finding a drum kit and playing that for two minutes - not an impressive track. The atmosphere is maintained well by the fact that the tracks seamlessly mix into one another. "Bones" is a great ethereal keyboard track. "AH This Language" is 30 minutes of eclectic noise, broadcast snippets, repetitious sounds, and incorporates the drumming from "Attic Friends" at one point. The last track is just the first one slightly remixed. All the way through there is this dark moodiness, but this is not easy listening, more frustrating than enjoyable. Someone is bound to like it, but in my opinion it is way too experimental.
