Prog Reviewer
4 stars Pretty much what you'd expect to hear if you materialised on a life bearing planet in the Andromeda galaxy. Large amounts of unintelligible whispering are swamped by waves of deep, dark electronic drones creating what many may find to be a scary album. Not me though.... I love this kind of stuff. Beatless, guitarless and without a snowball's chance in hell of penetrating the top 100.

Robert Rich definitely adds a bit of life to what would have been a fairly dull, regular Lustmord album. Superb late night listening which could almost leave you comatose. There's a tremendous sense of space created which prevails throughout this 68 minute album, which continually warps ever so slowly in a kaleidoscopic manner.

This is one collaboration which truly bore fruit and is quite rightly viewed as one of the best dark ambient recordings ever produced.

On a more morbid observation 'Stalker' could just as easily be viewed as the sounds Ted Bundy heard in his mind whilst creeping up on his victims. You can just imagine him peering over hedges and garden walls looking at people. Yikes!

Very quiet, and without too much tune, 'Stalker' hits all the right notes with its atmosphic darkness. Almost like a vulture hanging over your shoulder like impending doom.

It's too late for Earth, save Uranus.
