"Glad finally I found the time to write a review on one of my all time favorite noise CDs. Xdugef surprizes us here with a nightmarish drone and glitch/bend CD that takes you to another planet where disaster lurks around the next corner. Often you glide through looped soundscapes with industrial feel and events happen on this soundscape - like factories appearing on the horizon or funny beings telling you their story of thorrow and demise.
There is no uphill in this glitched out spaced out slow drone world - everything ends in decay, loss, loosing of parts. Tracks are frequently engulfed in slow sad melodic lines of humming from some transistors. Hard to describe because this CD is certainly in its own category.
Overall, it is in the realm of ambient noise with an industrial feel to it for the choice of sound and the looped character. A lot of distorted and screwed up sounds - transistors, machines, and tortured toys.
The CD is very well produced and mastered, perhaps with the exception of track 3 - I am sure the artist wants it like this but my car speakers made my car vibrate from nose to ass - maybe the artist wanted to not only have music coming from the speaker but from the whole environment. If so, he succeeded completly . That is one monster bass.
Overall, this is one of the CDs I wouldn't want to part with and has inspired me a lot. Planet X is a result of listening to this. So get your copy today from www.xdugef.com or www.roilnoise.com (distro) and agree or disagree with this review."
