1 stars you can barely hear the music, so.. and is very repeatingly simple, but still avantgardist - like they can't play..

but i like some of the material. it would be very nice, if this was proto-songs - there are parts of previously published songs here and there - because it's great to expand minimalistic stuff. But this isn't their first album.

but what i like, is Faust-like scary things. For example Scholar of Consciousness is nice piece - i don't mind if it is just bad live-recording.

i wonder if they just published this because they recorded this, or cos there no other stuff from conserts. Or did they note that, wow, this shit works! Or is it just: let's be lousy.

if there's purpose to be artistic, i just don't like this kind of art very much.

and i got it in the last track: oh, this is live recording (though there had been audience on beforing tracks). Not nice thing to do: To Live For To Die. I hate those puzzles (when someone else makes em). But I certainly was dying when listening this album.

Maybe it made its purpose. This is art.

But people like clear things - it must be clearly complex or dejected. (more likely clearly clear and happy).

I give 1,5 stars (but stil one). Sympatthy? yes, but: There really were good things - even progressive!!
