1 stars Warning:

Though it seems harsh to give an album one star, on a site such as this it deserves so. Unless I read the website's given name wrong and this page is really "" I must say I don't know anything about ambience, techno, electronia, etc. but as far as I can tell this seems to be another non-progressive album posted for someone's bashing. I offer this warning to you all, if you have the chance to buy it one day (it's rare, I hear) it will turn into an antique I am sure, but it may be better just to attempt downloading for a "kicks and giggles" experiment, unless you are a die-hard fan, or enjoy Von to a certain extent, but felt it needed more from the key area instead of the bass and drums areas. You can get a slightly more pessimistic version of this CD through the "Aphex Twins," though that's much quicker and upbeat.

Bottom Line: If you want to see remixed Von songs, shoot for this. Otherwise I suggest trying out "Von Brigđi" as long as it's cost free. But the later two albums, and maybe even the 2004 EP (Ba Ba Ti Ki Di Do) are far more accessable, interesting, and not just pure ambients. If only this were a purely electronia site, and if only this particular album blended Von elements with somethings included in the future albums. But it's too late for that.
