3 stars "f#a#{infinity}" is a severly good album. Three extended tracks that have much akin to Kraut-rock, except for the fact that GYBE! never uses synth. The album begins with "The Dead Flag Blues." The first thing you hear is, well, nothing. Then a slow rumbling of sustained bowed bass rumbles with a great spoken word intro. You get the tone of the album right there: apocalypse. "East Hastings" follows and then the 30- minute "Providence." All three tracks have multiple sections. However, don't assume that any piece is a calculated whole, as these sections just flow into one another, with very little connection musically or thematically. A very good debut album, but only hinting at the heights to be scaled from that point on.
