"Okay, imagine a B science fiction movie circa 1950 from the Middle East. That is an apt description of this music. Sometimes the idea of something is better than the execution of something. This is not going to be everyone's piece of cake but it is still eatable."
"This is one of the most varied Muslimgauze releases around, and I've heard a lot of them. Heavy hand drumming, big dub basslines, crackling dropouts and disorienting delayed dropouts make for a mesmerizing listening odyssey. Many Muslimgauze releases are sort of 'thematic', in the sense that they stick to one basic style, tempo, or groove structure, but not Lo-Fi; it's got a great variety of tempos and textures, but definitely stays on the beat side - Arabic/electro futurepast! Terrific production and mastering. This one's a must! To all those who think 'you've heard one Muslimgauze, you've heard them all' - forget it. Check this out!"
"Possibly the baddest track on the disc, Dust of Saqqara drags a glowing meteorite out from under Zoser's step pyramid, cracks it open, and slowly gets the glowing green ooze all over the place. Android Cleaver resurrects Eldridge as a loping automaton blazing like Westworld. Dogon tabla calls the Great Fish God out of the deep with sweet, aquafied keyboard trills, and Nommos' Afterburn sends him back to the Sirius system with rocket fuel burning hot, white, and deafeningly loud."
One of the first posthumous MG releases. Quotes above are from customer reviews on amazon. This is one of my favorite albums.
