2 stars If you will discover this limited edition vinyl only short album (EP?) after you listened to their great high energy neo-Kraut album "Inertiadrome" as I did, you will be surprised, almost shocked!

Four not very long compositions there on this release all are almost rhythm-less liquid contemporary drone, avant / ambient (?) free form pieces of music. Dark, dynamic-less sound, slowly chaging tones and timbres, like high-viscosity liquid running from one strange form glass reservoir to another. With some metallic overtones in sound. Too dark and too heavy to be named "ambient". It reminds some modern avant garde composers works as well as some early electronics musical experimental compositions (with the big difference though - all the sound there is not electronics at all). Side B contains some minimalistic drumming and distorted bass on it, but them both are more sources for specific sounds than rhythm section there.

Highly experimental recordings closest by its atmosphere for most experimental Brian Eno's ambient works, this release has it interesting moments, but I believe the main listener for such music should be hot fan of radical contemporary avant garde.

My rating is 2,5, rounded to 2.
