Format: Audio CD
Released in 1999, this album shows that NWW were still making brillaint music 20 years after their first album came out. 'Intravenous' lazily grows stronger and stronger, using occasionally strummed electric guitar. '2 Shaves and a Shine' is fantastic - it starts with a rumbling bass guitar parts and finger clicks - David Tibet of Current 93 spits out some killer lines, some are rather unintelligable, but it sounds hillarious, yet scary. The track builds into a mass freak-out, with bass, drums and scathing psyche guitar shining - then the unexpected - the addition of a bouzouki, turning the whole thing into Greek-psyche jam! Didn't expect that did you! Track 3 is rather long - around 25 mins, fetaures some sparse electronics and includes a computerised voice talking about beards - hmmm! Its a nice piece though. Tracks 5 is quite similar to track 1 and is a nice come-down to what is a wonderful album!

Great album 13 Dec. 2011
By J. Goodfellow - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I am writing this review for those who have started to explore Nurse with Wound but aren't sure whether this album is any good. NWW has a vast discography, only a small subset of which is readily available on CD. And of those, this is one of the ones that doesn't seem to get talked about much. I bought it on a whim, but was a little afraid that it was either not great, or purely ambient.

So far, I have this album, Homotopy to Marie and Spiral Insana. In terms of accessibility, this probably ranks after Spiral but before HTM. Much of the album is made up of layered sound effects without any clear rhythm, but I wouldn't classify it as ambient music. Stapleton is able to retain some momentum or even a narrative to the pieces without using any of the conventional means.

Throughout the album, atmospheric sections are interspersed with portions of more conventional instrumentation or dialogue layered with swathes of feedback or electronic bleeps. The variety of sounds and textures keeps thing from getting boring, yet somehow the songs never feel random despite the unpredictability.

As someone who occasionally subjects himself to difficult listening experiences because of the novelty of their concept, I have been pleasantly surprised to learn that NWW isn't really one of those bands. Stapleton is talented enough to make experimental and unconventional music seem natural. To enjoy this, all that is required is a childlike love of sounds.

Sounds. 13 Oct. 2007
By Brian Lange. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
If sound existed in space, this is what it would sound like.

It makes me think of some unknown amphitheater in the middle of nowhere, while you watch random lights flicker in the distance while hearing this music. It's quite experimental, droney, and often hypnotic. Sometimes the random inserts of a maniacal laugh, laser beams, or a randomly plucked african instrument can be disenchanting, but overall I would say it a rather good ambient body of work.

There are almost twenty tracks on this record, which make for a good lulling sound as you lay in bed contemplating or falling asleep. I'd compare this to Set Fire to Flames' records or even Trent Reznor's work for the original Quake soundtrack. A good buy.
