4.0 out of 5 stars Weird 23 July 2011
By Dr. Delvis Memphistopheles TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Tripping through the fields of youth sound fragments would enter and eject as you turn different directions, they would echo for moments and then disipate. This album collates those shards and pushes them together. Revolution number 9 to those who exist on the outside. Industrial in the sense it captures an imagination in the best form of he genre before a formula was struck.

Headphones, space or friends gathered round a big bong; it all becomes creeping back as this piece of music leads you gently down flowing streams of the subconscious to take you by the hand on a journey. Good company with stretched horizons, a few spare hours to kill and some form of catalyst to levitate the soul is what needed.

Then this piece of music will intone its magic and what appears random will arise as a 4d soundscape. All you need is an imaginarium.

Not one to pump out of the car stereo late at night unless you want an instant pull.

Wow - when i first heard this album i was amazed at how well it was put together. Like some of their other albums, there is a theme running through each track - this is no exception. Each theme is interwoven into the music and when they re-occur its a nice surprise. This album really does show the genius of Steven Stapleton - why he is not shown in the same light as Stockhausen, Cage etc, i don't know, but hopefully in time he will be given the plaudits he deserves.

5.0 out of 5 stars More weirdness from The 'Wound 13 Jan 2010
Format:Audio CD
This is as good a place as any to start with Nurse With Wound, as it is mostly not as abrasive as some of their output. It's one of those records that rewards listening to it in different enviroments and times as the subliminal sound effects only then become obvious. The reoccuring theme helps the flow of the album and ends off rather nicely with the track 'Nihil' it's rather pastorial in feel but still strange and oddly disturbing in the way that Nurse With Wound effortly manage, fading out with what can only be described as a folk song playing from inside your head!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fitching a Wrong Sucker 11 July 2001
By S. C. Ward - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Buy this album, Buy this album, Buy this album!!!!! Steven Stapleton rarely ceases to amaze, and this is no exception. Originally released on vinyl on the TORSO label in the mid-eighties, this is prime NWW. Experimental as always, this album is, for lack of a better word, amongst the more "ambient" of the NWW works. Still challenging at times, this record is considerably more "listenable" than earlier NWW pieces. The only frustrating thing about this album is the back cover listing 20 tracks (A-T) but the cd itself only being indexed as three tracks. -What this means is that i am not sure if the best track on the album is called "migration to the head," "earthwork," red period," "this lady is burning." or "chasing the carrot." In any event, you need this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Dark Ambient 18 Jan 2003
By Logan Albright - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is my second NWW album (after Man With The Woman Face) and I love it! Stapleton has a wonderfully eclectic style that will hold your interest and keep you coming back for more. Just when you think you've got the record pegged as a spooky, dark organ cacophony, you're bombarded with a jazzy piano solo out of the clear blue sky. Of a set of bagpipes blaring away, or the naturalistic sounds of birds chirping. There are even kazoos! It is often tricky to create ambient-style music that is still engaging all the way through, but Stapleton has a rousing success in Spiral Insana.
I will definately be listening to more NWW in the future (if I can find it, that is).

5.0 out of 5 stars What U R looking for, though you may not know it! 6 April 2002
By Phil - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I'm relatively new to NWW's music, but I've recently been snapping up everything I can get my hands on! No two albums are the same, but this is the entry point, one of the best. There is incredible variety within this album, with ambient segments alternating with more manic stretches, like The Faust Tapes, only both more cohesive and more diverse. Keyboard drones, pipe organ blasts, spaced out electronics, honky-tonk piano, meditative reeds, generator rumble, chirping birds, banjos, jags of noise, phased out martial beats, dubbed out kazoos, bowed pianos, rattling tin cans, guitar skronk,tape loop insanity....it's all here!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate Classic in its Field... 31 Mar 2007
By Toxic Excess - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Having been an experimental music freak since the late 70s, I can easily vote this my favourite disk of its kind ever. This was my second NWW disk bought after "Homotopy to Marie," and it's never ceased to amaze and beguile me. I originally bought it on the Dutch Torso label on vinyl and was thrilled to find it finally re-released on United Dairies on compact disk many years later with the final section intact. This has either become incredibly rare or (more likely) people are unwilling to part with it once they've added it to their collection, as I've never seen it on eBay in the past two years since I started haunting it and buying through it. By all means, if you can, find this and get it for your very own!
