Reviewed 2004-11-16 
Mostly glacial dramatic soundscapes from founder
of Lycia. Drony spaciousness, nearly nightmarish,
occasionally with a beat. Deliciously bitter but sticks in your throat and suffocates you.

1)** drony ambient with shamanic beat and colossal
breathing 7:25
2)* well titled 3:23
3) swelling and intense, then sparse fadeout 7:27
4) almost voices more strident than ambient 3:54
5) muddy vocals, guitar w/Vangelis chords & a drum
could be Moby 7:36
6) simple repetition of a melody w/ swelling waaaah
7:36
7)* total dark soundscape 3:12
8) space is the place 10BPM 6:06
9) something is happening deep in the machinery
a distant aah 7:20
10)* marching giant robots (Sky Captain) 7:37
