review...
This debut release contains some of the most richly synthesized Endgame, and established the band as an individual new talent on the electronic avant-garde, and synth music fronts, with a careful balance of melodic and abstract elements.
A c90 cassette release limited edition, this is vast and sprawling, deep and cosmic, with an uneasy balance of the melodic and abstract. Lots of analogue synthesizers feature, digital modelling electronics and an overdose of reverb and delay/echo devices, along with glissando/abstract guitars, subtle use of voice, etc.
Those fans of cosmic music should start here (the beginning is often a good place) and if you don't have a cassette player it's now also widely available as an mp3 download culled from the original masters (a limited edition 2xCDR was also recently published).
