Island, 1994

It's only a little album, but even so it's a let-down after the brilliant Ultraworld and UF Orb. Maybe I just don't get it, but it sounds as though it was just chucked together, without any cohesive inspiration. It's a bizarre bunch of strange human voice and sound effect samples, and feels like it was a just a platform for footling around randomly in the studio with audio effects. I even thought there was something up with my personal stereo when I first listened to it! The sparkly textures of the first track are its one redeeming feature.
