Review by DjBatman
4 stars out of 4

This excellent album put together by brothers Phil & Paul Hartnoll consecrates them among the geniuses of electronic music in the late 90's. "The girl with the sun in her head", dedicated to photographer Sally Harding recorded using Greenpeace's solar-powered generator called Cyrus is simply a jewel. The atmospheres in some of the other tracks seem to combine a mixture of electrified oriental music ("P.E.T.R.O.L." opens with a gong sample) and spacey sounds. The percussions sometimes recall drum machines from the 80's, while in "The Box" we enter the realm of atmospheric jungle. Melody and rhythm are always going well together, as the Hartnoll brothers create their aural ambients. The final "Out there somewhere" (presented in two parts, like "The Box") begins as a moody and apparently simple track... and ends in a sort of huge electronic symphony.
