5 stars Glorious ecstatic hymns exclusively made of violin abrasive drones and freak-out dissonances, accompanied by drums sections and e-guitar bass lines. This intriguing album is now a true classic of contemporary music and progressive rock. This one captures the essence of minimalism music and the energy of rock. To be honest, this album looks like more to Tony Conrad's explorations in experimentation sounds and insistent droning performances than FAUST's hybrid rocking universe. "From The Side Of Man And Womankind" is based on a repetitive, ritual drum pulsation, giving the rhythm for long, monotonous, fuzzy violin drones (played by Tony Conrad); the atmosphere is wonderfully noisy, extreme and transcendent. "From The Side Of The Machines" takes back the same schema of composition but within a more colourful, dynamic flame, the result is completely "physical", throwing the listener into a deep "visceral" meditation. A landmark, epic album!
