Near the very top of Kirk's output...,
This review is from: The Conversation (Audio CD)
Seminal album by Richard H Kirk (as Cabaret Voltaire) after he and Stephen Mallinder had largely ceased to exist as a partnership. This is one of 3 ambient albums Kirk recorded as CV on his own (the other two being Plasticity and International Language - both magnificent).
Recorded at the very peak of Kirk's powers in 1994, this is a simply jaw dropping Ambi-Tech, funked-out, late night drive with the Master's recurrent themes, sounds and production values... CD2 features one single 50minute track (Project 80) which is similar in style to Knowledge Thru Science...
This is largely overlooked (partly due to the CV release moniker) amongst the company of his masterworks like Closed Circuit, Virtual State, Digital Lifeforms, etc, etc, etc, etc..... BUT..... It's up there, it really is. I can give it no higher praise than that...
NB - I have seen this being sold for prohibitively high amounts. If you just want to hear the music, you might wanna search iTunes.... Maybe....
