this album is frankly insane. 3 songs lasting just over an hour containing very few component parts, especially Hell-O)))-Ween which has basically one long riff repeated over its entire 15 minutes. this would at first appear to be boring, but that is far from being the case. you listen to this album and soon you're sucked in, not wanting the riff to end as it repeats over and over until you reach a state of almost hypnosis. the repetition is the strength of this song, as bizarre as that sounds. bassAliens is a very different matter, containing again repeated riffs throughout but with very strange sounds that actually do manage to sound like aliens in the bass amp. i assume this was the effect they were going for and if so they've pulled it off remarkably well. the final song, Decay2 [Nihils' Maw] is again very different. with guest vocals from ex-Mayhem man Attila Csihar reading from an ancient Sanskrit text, this song is again very strange, containing all manner of wierd atmospherics and effects over a simple guitar and bass track. the vocals add this track an air of eerieness and uncertainty. overrall this album is an astonishing piece of work, although in terms of other sunn O))) albums is probably just behind their best work, which is probably White1 or maybe Black One, although all their albums are excellent if a little inaccessible for newcomers to the genre. other bands of this style to check out include Khanate, Earth, Boris, Asva and Stephen O'Malley's solo work (if you can find any).
