Nerve Net Noise - 160/240


So you think you're tough, do ya? You like harsh noise? Yeah? No problem for you, is it toughie? Well, get ready to weep. You cannot make it through this album. It's not that the music is even particularly harsh. It is not aggressive. The sleeve is entirely white, no imagery for helpless listeners to grab onto. The sound is merciless: two synthesizers bleeping dispassionately, one synth on each half-hour track and zero human interaction. Indeed, no humanity at all. The only other sound you'll hear is the soft sobbing coming out of your defeated face after five minutes. 

Oh, but I'm mistaken. There will be another sound, though you won't be able to make it out very well. Listen closely, and you might be able to discern the distant echo of derisive chuckling. Hear it? Good. That would be me, laughing at you. You said you were tough. Look at you now. Reduced to blubbering by a little album of music. Pathetic.

This is one sneaky motherfucker of a release...the opposite end of a harsh wall.

All the more disturbing because of it's lack of any "content" ...quite brilliant!

One of the world's greatest bands - good call! "Chamber Music for Factory" may be even further out than this one too.
