Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2002-11-25 
Primo distorto noise, twisted and ambient at times, pounding mechanical looping at others. Pretty harsh for the most part, typical Merzbow, but not as ear-bleeding as some of his work. Beautiful stuff.

1) looping industrial factory-like tones, turns distorto-noise then pounding
2) low hypnoticdrone evolves to thicker louder looping drones
3) a lot of white noise, flight-line harshness, nothing piercing though
4) slow trippy loops, restrained and totally hypnotic, grows harsher after 8-10 minutes, then tuns ambient clicky, very long and looped
