2 stars Dark, cryptic atmospheres and moody playing make this entirely improvised album a very aquired taste, but for those seeking ambient background music it fits the bill nicely. Sounds are very similar to what we've heard on "Signify", with Wilson chiming out guitar effects and Edwin's clear bass delivering some enjoyable grooves. Maitland's drumming is very laidback, and effective given the setting. Great for mellow listening with the lights down.

There isn't a melody to be found, and it will come across as very repetative to most listeners-- know what you're getting into. As the sticker on my copy's CD case says, "File Under Self-Indulgent".
