2 stars Released in the mid-90's, this is a recording that dates of the debut album, even if it is more related to the second release of theirs. Just three lengthy tracks that will remind you more early Tangerine Dream (Zeit) or early Kraftwerk, rather than Faust's completely mad oeuvre. The title track is not yet recorded in their home studio, but next year's Metal is and the last Varispeed are and you can hear it; Obviously the trio was more at ease in their own wall, but this does not make their music anymore fascinating (I feel like saying interesting, but fear my friend Chris's wrath), even if the historical and experimental value of such a record made it a necessary release. If the first track is extremely atmospheric and a bit spacey (featuring mostly wind instruments from Charles Bullen, a self-confessed non-musician), the second one is extremely percussive (featuring metal percussions) being the realm of Charles Hayward, while the third (previously available on a 12" EP) goes back to a spacey sound and drones evolving way too slowly to hold much interest, unless the 15 mins were condensed into 4.

All three tracks are relatively uneventful, with terrible lengths and do not hold IMHO any of the fascinating aspects of those early 70's German groups. This album like all This Heat album is for RIO confirmed fans and this one is only for This Heat unconditionals. So I have a hard times recommending this to anyone else.
