The inside liner notes say 'Play loud.' What is this, Controlled Bleeding? But what the heck, it's the day after Christmas as I write this and no one is in the office so I up the volume. This is pretty good noisy stuff. It isn't really noise in the way that Merzbow or Controlled Bleeding is noise, but noisy in the way that Hafler Trio or Zoviet France can be noisy. The artists do a good job of merging ambience and noise ranging from screams, animal grunts, and groans to machine noise, field recordings and guitar. This was quite enjoyable overall and pretty engaging, although the 20 minute track (no titles listed) did get a bit repetitive after a while. File under atmospheric noise. This album weighs in at around 50 minutes.
