1 stars This effort is about of the same vein as its predecessor. Several ridiculously short numbers (can't call these songs really) of about one minute (but this a trade mark from this band); some others punk oriented ones are the ingredients featured on this ''work''.

This band is quite confidential (on PA at least), and this album just confirms why. They might sound avant garde at times, but tracks as ''Punch Buggy Valves'' or the even worse ''No One Fed Me So I Stayed'' are quite unbearable.

The Japanese ''vocalist'' is not an asset either shall I say. If you would like to experiment some heavy and loud noise, then ''Our Angel's Ululu'' is highly recommended to you. But I'm not in such a mood.

Figure out: there is even an attempt to some Laurie Anderson minimalism during the long (over eight minutes, can you believe?) ''Trumpeter Swan'' stuff. But it falls just short in my opinion. Still, this is the most human track of all available here.

This very short work (thank god again!) conveys a strong boring feeling, believe me. It is best avoided. One star? Yes, one star. A painful experience to tell you the truth. An almost complete ''press next'' exercise. This is closer to garage music than anything else.
