The most up-tempo Necks release. Ultra-fast cymbal work, multi-dimensional drum feels, swirling Hammond organ, mesmerising bass, onieric rhodes and big piano riffs, combine to make this one of the Necks most formidable releases.

"Mesmerising, grandiose music from one of the best bands on the planet"
–The Guardian (UK)
