4 stars This is a compilation of two other releases - 'Return of a Legend: Munic and Elsewhere' and 'The Last LP'. The 'Munic' tracks (1 - 5) are mostly dense sound collages which feature lots of studio effects - a lot of time was clearly spent at the mixing desk. The technique is something like dub reggae, though the sound is a million miles away from Lee Perry's. The two long tracks 'A' and 'B' are best - hypnotic beats, a dense soundscape with fragments of words or melodies breaking through every now and then. 'Meer' is a ghostly fragment built around a slow piano figure, while 'Don't Take Roots' is almost rock music. The 'Last LP' pieces have a brighter, clearer sound and at times are quite tuneful, as on the rippling piano/guitar duet of 'Party 6' or the never ending descending scale of 'Party 1'. If you like Faust then this comes highly recommended; newcomers would probably fare better with 'Faust So Far'.
Syzygy | 4/5 |
