Review by historian9
3 stars There are two parts to this album, first 4 tracks are the SWF recordings which were made two months after the first album, so they have the original line-up and very similar to the self titled album. Those tracks are mostly instrumental and they are more like those creative ones from the old album; no replacement for "Dirty Yellow Mist" , "Hysteria" is a decent loud opener though and all the other tracks have good psychedelic qualities to a degree, "BBB" for example.

Tracks from 5 to 11 were made only by Rendel in 2001. They are a bit of a mixed bunch that remind a bit of King Crimson's ProjeKct albums, at the moments jaming good and then going into ambient waters with weird sounds. Lots of electronic experimentation as well, with Rendel using distorted vocals that would make some industrial bands jealous. Robert Fripp's solo albums also might give you a bit of an idea of what this sounds like as would maybe under a bit of stretch late 80's Crimson, in terms of sound that is, I don't think they are as good. Also, don't expect the long "Mystery Metal Thing" to be the new "Dirty Yellow Mist".

Overall, Rendell's solo part of the album isn't my cup of tea and It's not something I will get back to any time soon but the SWF sessions are good though, nothing mind blowing great, but if you liked the first album then you will like these as well as they are more of the same and they won't disappoint. And you will probably want to hear what Rendell can do solo, just out of curiosity.
