This has to be one of the best ambient albums constructed with a wide variety of moods, from the thumping Track 4 (Slider) to the whale sounding 'Eyes pop skin explodes everybody dead' (Track 7). Throughout the album the incorporated samples accompanied by Eastern vocals sound to me like music that would be ideal for a Bladerunner like landscape. In one line: Eastern influence dark distorted ambient techno. Don't miss this!

FSOL are too far ahead for their own good. This album released and deleted on the same day is an amazing feat of ultra mellow and sometimes bizarre music. The packaging is also very impressive - my copy folding out to reveal a Lifeforms/My Kingdom picture.
The music may not be as accessible as other of their offerings as it falls fully within the experimental sphere, but it is still superb. On one of the tracks there is a bass sound that comes from the depths of space - very impressive and a touch disconcerting.

In reponse to the it's it's awful comment - it's different.

Music does not have to be poptastic, it can be based around sounds and rhythms.

And these guys know how to put together amazing examples of audio you will not here anywhere else on this earth.

I cannot reccomend this duo enough however read the previous post, and if you can't appreciate the genre O.K.

It's worth the try, and you'll never look back.

Absolutely awesome, mind blowing, get it and if you wish for a gentle start to the FSOl experience go for lifeforms.

Get them all, theyr're all interesting and a sonic fantasyland.

Unbelievable.

I have been a fsol fan for ages and this albumn is my favourite. For anyone who does not know fsol they are to me a good sample/computer type of dance music that give a slow but strong and very dark vibe. I think that they have a very dim view of the future and they reflect this in their music.
The albumn (as most albumns do) has some filler but these keep in touch with the feel of the stronger songs (tracks) they just do not progress as well as they could. The stronger tracks are me real hidden classics that match Aphex Twins or the orbs best.
If you are of like mind you may, like me, find this albumn to be a permanent space in an mp3.

One of those albums that you need to sit in the dark to listen to. An excellent mellow chill-out listen with an acid bite. Still sounds great after 5 years.

FSOL were a pretty new thing to me when i bought this - i bought the album because it was cheap and i knew it was like a lot of the other stuff i listen to (leftfield, faithless etc). A particularly good album for chilling out to - makes good background music for a party or just for lying in bed if you feel ill or want to get to sleep. Well worth a buy, it only costs a few quid. Especially like the far-out son of lung and the ramblings of a madman.
