1 stars This is one of those albums that should come with a pillow, as Ain Soph achieves an unprecedented level of boredom during a thoroughly depressing 77 minutes of uninspired filler. Actually, there is a mitigating circumstance, as this isn't really a proper Ain Soph album - apparently, it was a demo from 1978, when the band was known as Tenchi Sozo , that was released in 1991 as an Ain Soph album. The reason for why that was done is unclear, as, besides the fact that thealbum plainly sucks, half of it has been heard elsewhere - the first 2 tracks have been re-recorded for "Marine Menagerie", which was released the same year, and "A Story..." was the title track on their 1980 debut (fortunately, by then they had attained the courtesy to shorten it to 18 minutes - that's still way too long for a generally uneventful track, but better than the 24 -minutes-of-nothing version found on this album). A track-by-track analysis would be pointless, and besides, the album is so weak and monotonous that I can't remember anything from it anyway, and I doubt anyone could. Avoid this at all cost.
