Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2002-11-25 
Experimental noise collage, drone, interesting. Super cool, all tracks great. Reminiscent of Throbbing Gristle low-fi aspects, but way advanced. Nothing super harsh, certainly no new-age artiness. Just damn good noise collage.

1) synth loops, experimental feel, ambient noisy, after 2 min percussion enters along w/ various other tones and intensity builds but breaks into genuine experimental collage at 4 minutes, vaguely rhythmic, strange w/ subliminal voices, chanting
2) ambient melodic tones w/ aggressive white noise bursts, super cool and trippy, builds to drumming, pounding, yelling, tasteful noise drone
3) noisy collage, synth loops, buried indecipherable voice, Throbbing Gristle, builds and builds to a rhythmic pulse and beat
4) exotic world feel w/ flute and bells initially, synth drones, genuine low-fi drum beat enters after 5+ mins, synth/samples take lead, ends w/ lots of surf sounds, about 7 min, nice
5) almost song-like w/ crescendo drum beats almost noisey, long, shouting
